INDIA TO JOIN THE GLOBAL ENTRY PROGRAM FOR EXPEDITED CLEARANCE AND IMMIGRATION AFTER ARRIVAL IN THE US.

July 27, 2017

Many Indian nationals had high hopes from the first meeting between the US President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi which was held in the recent past. The meeting disappointed many Indian Nationals as there was no discussion regarding immigration and the highly sought after H-1B visa between the two leaders.

 

However, there is a good news for Indian Nationals that, US has agreed to allow India to join the Global Entry program which will reduce the clearance and immigration time for certain Indian Nationals after arrival in the US.

 

 

 

Global Entry is a US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) program which allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Members enter the United States through automatic kiosks. These kiosks are available at select airports. The members have to present or submit their machine readable passports or their permanent resident cards. They are then prompted to place their fingers on the scanner to verify the fingerprints. Lastly, one has to complete a customs declaration. Once the entire verification is done, the kiosks will issue the traveler a transaction receipt and direct him/her to baggage claim and exit.

 

Foreign nationals and US citizens or US lawful permanent residents are required to apply with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to receive Global entry Program membership. Applicants are required to submit all the information that is requested in by the CBP. Applicants are then required to appear for an interview at one of the Global Entry Enrollment centers. At the interview, A U.S. Customs Border Protection officer will ask the applicant questions, take photograph of the applicant, and collect his/her fingerprints.

 

A fee in the amount of $100 is applicable and required to be paid while submitting the online application. One should also note that the application fee is non-refundable. The membership is awarded for 5 years and members need to apply for renewal by visiting CBP and completing the online application.

 

One more point to note is that members who are not US Citizens or Lawful permanent residents, must maintain updated visa information with the CBP. Failure to comply with this shall result in wrong class of admission and incorrect date of admission and departure.
