India Will Be Enrolled in U.S. Global Entry Program

An MoU  for the development of an International Expedited Traveler Initiative (also known as the Global Entry Program) was signed in Washington D.C. by the Ambassador of India to the United States and the Deputy Commissioner, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of Homeland Security. This program will allow for expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers from India upon arrival in the United States.  All applicants undergo a rigorous background check and an in-person interview before enrollment, after which members enter the United States through automatic kiosks at select airports. The procedures for India’s entry into the Global Entry Program are expected to be completed in the coming months.

Global Entry Signpost

Currently, the Global Entry Program is available at more than 40 US airports and 12 pre-clearance locations. More than 1.8 million people are enrolled in Global Entry and approximately 50,000 new applications for the program are filed every month.
