    • Global Entry logo  


      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. Global Entry is open to U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, Dutch citizens, and Mexican nationals. Though intended for frequent international travelers, there is no minimum number of trips necessary to qualify for the program.

      Tired of waiting in line at U.S. Customs and Border Protection when your flight arrives? Take advantage of completing your Global Entry interview while at RSNA 2014, eliminating the extra trips to the airport.

      At airports, program participants proceed to Global Entry kiosks, present their 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 the traveler a transaction receipt and directs the traveler 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.

      Global Entry is available for citizens, nationals, and lawful permanent residents of the United States, Dutch citizens (who are members of Privium), Korean citizens (who are members of the Smart Entry Service) and Mexican nationals of all ages, provided they have not been found guilty of a criminal offense, charged with a customs or immigration offense, or declared inadmissible to the U.S. under immigration law. Biometric technology will be used to verify your identity and confirm your status as a Global Entry participant.

      Applicants may not qualify for participation in the Global Entry program if they:

      • Provide false or incomplete information on the application
      • Have been convicted of any criminal offense or have pending criminal charges or outstanding warrants
      • Have been found in violation of any customs, immigration or agriculture regulations or laws in any country
      • Are subjects of an ongoing investigation by any federal, state or local law enforcement agency
      • Are inadmissible to the United States under immigration regulation, including applicants with approved waivers of inadmissibility or parole documentation
      • Cannot satisfy CBP of their low-risk status (e.g. CBP has intelligence that indicates that the applicant is not low risk; CBP cannot determine an applicant's criminal, residence or employment history)
