DETROIT— The Global Entry program is running full speed ahead and is enjoying an overwhelming success in the international travel environment. U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) encourages international travelers to sign up for Global Entry and enjoy expedited processing at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
Global Entry is a CBP program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk international 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 potentially higher risk air travelers, thereby facilitating the movement of trusted travelers in a more efficient and effective manner.
"Global Entry participants benefit from expeditious processing and direct exiting to either a connecting flight or a final destination in the Detroit area," said Devin Chamberlain, Port Director. "Global Entry members are also eligible to expedite their domestic travels by using TSA’s Pre✓™ trusted traveler screening lines."
Companies and corporations who have employees who frequently travel internationally, are encouraged to inquire about hosting a mobile enrollment event where CBP Officers visit their locations to sign employees up for the program.
With fifteen kiosks located at Metro Airport, Global Entry participants enjoy reduced wait times and no paperwork.
Travelers who want to learn more about Global Entry and other trusted traveler programs can obtain information from the CBP website (https://ttp.cbp.dhs.gov).
