How Does the Global Entry Program Work?
When you arrive at the airport after a return international flight, proceed to an Global Entry kiosk, present your machine-readable passport or U.S. permanent resident card, place their fingertips on the scanner for fingerprint verification, and make a customs declaration. The kiosk issues a transaction receipt and directs you to baggage claim and the exit.
Travelers must be pre-approved for the Global Entry program. All applicants undergo a rigorous background check and interview before enrollment.
Your time is valuable. Global Entry is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States.
As a pre-screened Global Entry member, you arrive in the United States, check-in at the Global Entry kiosk – and you’re on your way.
