On November 14th, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced the expansion of “Entry on Arrival” for the Global Entry Program to 11 additional international airports, enabling conditionally-approved Global Entry applicants to complete their interview (the final step of the GE process) while clearing CBP processing. The program is currently available at 54 U.S. airports and 15 preclearance locations, now including the San Diego International Airport.
Global Entry helps streamline international arrival process at airports for trusted travelers. As an added benefit, Global Entry members are also eligible to participate in the TSA Pre ✓™ expedited screening program. The goal of the Global Entry program is to speed travelers through the process, and to have a more efficient crossing. Currently, there are more than 4.7 million Global Entry members that can use the automated kiosk to complete their process.
