U is for Utilizing the Global Entry Program.

If you travel regularly, looking into the Global Entry Program is definitely worth investigating.  The Global Entry Program is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBC) program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States.

This Program is intended for frequent international travelers. Yet there is no minimum number of trips necessary to qualify for the program. When approved by the Global Entry program you will then be able to enter the United States with more ease. By using automated Kiosks located at select airports.

Travelers must be pre-approved for this program. You can begin this process at the Global Entry Website. All applicants undergo a background check and interview before enrollment.

Once accepted, you are able use Global Entry Kiosks. By presenting your machine-readable passport or permanent U.S. resident card. And placing your fingertips on the scanner for verification of your identity. You will then receive a transaction receipt at the kiosk which will direct you to baggage claim and the airport exit.

While this program does speed up the travel process, it does not guarantee further examination when entering the United States. If you violate any of the program’s terms and conditions, you will have to surrender your membership privileges.

So, with just a little bit of effort, this program is worth it for the frequent traveler!
