Since May 8, 2017, all citizens of Argentina can officially begin applying to enroll in the United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) “Global Entry” Trusted Traveler Program.
This new change makes the country of Argentina to be the tenth country whose Citizens are eligible to enroll in Global Entry. In addition to Argentina, people from Germany, Colombia, Mexico, Panama, the Netherlands, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom may also apply for Global Entry membership. While Canadian Citizens and residents enrolled in NEXUS can use the Global Entry kiosks.
What is the CBP Global Entry Program?
The CBP Global Entry Trusted Traveler Program is a program that allows expedited clearance of pre-approved and low-risk travelers to come to the United States. It is currently available at 52 U.S. airports and also 15 Preclearance locations. This program also allows its members to bypass traditional CBP inspection lines. Passengers can use an automated kiosk to complete their admission to U.S and reduce their processing time.
How can you apply For Global Entry Membership?
If you are a citizen from Argentina, (or from any other country belonging to the list), you can apply for Global Entry using the Global Online Enrollment System (GOES). This application can only be submitted online through GOES. It also has a non-refundable application fee of $100 for a five-year Global Entry membership. After your application is approved, you will schedule an interview with a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer to determine your eligibility.
