DETROIT—On August 19, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport added five additional Global Entry kiosks for use by Global Entry participants arriving on international flights. This brings the total number of available kiosks to seven.
"With the addition of these kiosks, CBP is able to provide a greater level of service to trusted travelers by expediting and streamlining their entry process," said Devin Chamberlain, port director. "This furthers our efforts to facilitate legitimate travelers, while securing our homeland from those who would do us harm."
Global Entry is a CBP program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. The Global Entry program also benefits CBP and participating foreign governments by allowing them to focus efforts on unknown and potentially higher risk air travelers, thereby facilitating the movement of trusted travelers in a more efficient and effective manner.
Travelers who want to learn more about the Global Entry program can obtain information from the CBP website or the Global Entry website at globalentry.gov.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
