Global Entry Enrollment
Global Entry is popular due to the ease it provides to travelers upon return to the United States. Members are able to re-enter after a brief visit to a biometric kiosk. This will eliminate waiting in lines common to the manual re-entry process. To obtain Global Entry membership, individuals submit an application and then undergo a background check. After receiving conditional approval, they must make an appointment for an interview at an enrollment center. Global Entry membership cost $100 and last for five years. Most applications are quickly reviewed. Other times, the processes can take from six to 18 months. The Customs and Border Protection runs the program.
