Sterling Travel : News : US extends Global Entry to UK citizens

US extends Global Entry to UK citizens

 12 Nov 2015

Global EntryGlobal Entry is a US Customs and Border Protection programme that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travellers upon arrival in the US.

From 3 December 2015, UK citizens can register to be eligible for a Global Entry membership.

To register travellers must apply through the “Register to Apply” service on the UK Home Office website and pay a £42 processing fee.

If it passes UK vetting the traveller will receive a UK Access Code, which will be entered when applying for Global Entry through the Global Online Enrolment System.

The non-refundable application fee for a five-year membership is $100 and applications can only be made online. Once approved the travellers must then attend an interview with a US customs officer.

Travellers will then be able to use special gates at 46 US airports, which take a minute on average to process one passenger. There are 13 pre-clearance kiosks around the world, including at big Canadian airports, Abu Dhabi and Shannon in Ireland.

The system uses its own dedicated kiosks separate from the Passport Express facilities that can be used by all US citizens with biometric passports and foreign nationals from eligible countries with electronic visas.
