Global Entry: Avoid Customs Lines With This U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) Program by Eirene Heidelberger

Travel frequently out of the U.S.? Learn about the Global Entry Program (GOES). Global Entry expedites the screening and processing of low-risk travelers entering the U.S. 

  • When arriving to the U.S. by air, you use a Global Entry kiosk as an alternative to standing in the regular customs line for processing.
  • At the kiosk, insert your passport. The kiosk will direct you to electronically provide your fingerprints and picture, which will be compared to a sample you previously provided during a short interview with a customs agent.

Apply online for $100 or find a Global Entry Enrollment Center near you!
