ST. LOUIS– If you are a Global Entry member traveling internationally through St. Louis International Airport (STL), starting on June 27 you will receive faster and touchless processing using U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) receiptless facial kiosks.


These upgraded facial kiosks eliminate paper receipts and leverage mobile Officer technology to provide a streamlined, expedited, and touchless experience for Global Entry members traveling internationally while ensuring national security and facilitating legitimate trade and travel.

“We are excited to be piloting receiptless facial kiosks at St. Louis International Airport. This innovative solution enhances our Global Entry program for both travelers and officers by reducing physical touchpoints, expediting member processing, and providing security benefits!” said LaFonda D. Sutton-Burke, Director, Field Operations-Chicago Field Office.

Receiptless facial kiosks utilize facial comparison and mobile Officer technology to streamline the traveler experience by confirming traveler identity and making an admissibility decision without producing a receipt, thus enabling increasingly contactless processing and a reduced environmental footprint through the elimination of paper receipts.

CBP's border security mission is led at 328 ports of entry by CBP officers from the Office of Field Operations.  Please visit CBP Ports of Entry to learn more about how CBP’s Office of Field Operations secures our nation’s borders. Learn more about CBP at
