INDIANAPOLIS— U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Indianapolis Airport Authority announced today that two Global Entry kiosk are now in operation for travelers arriving from international destinations.
Global Entry allows expedited CBP clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Global Entry members flying into Indy can now take advantage of this program at Indianapolis International Airport.
"We are very excited to offer Global Entry Kiosks to low-risk international travelers arriving in Indianapolis,” said James Moore, CBP Port Director Indianapolis. “This valuable program expedites CBP processing, reduces wait times, and benefits the traveling public and the local business community.”
“Providing amenities like this not only make traveling more convenient for passengers, but it reflects on their overall impression of the airport,” said Mario Rodriguez, executive director of the Indianapolis Airport Authority. “We rely on and appreciate our airport partners, like customs, TSA and the airlines in helping us identify and develop programs and amenities that provide an excellent customer experience.”
While the goal of Global Entry is to speed travelers through the process, members may be selected for further examination when entering the United States. Any violation of the program's terms and conditions will result in appropriate enforcement action and revocation of the traveler's membership privileges.
Applications must be completed and submitted online through the Trusted Traveler Program Programs through the CBP website. A non-refundable $100 per person application fee is payable on-line at the time of the application and is good for five years.
