Global Entry Program

    Global Entry is a voluntary program that allows for the expedited 
clearance of pre-approved, low-risk travelers arriving in the United 
States at Global Entry kiosks located at designated airports. The 
Global Entry final rule, published on February 6, 2012, promulgated the 
regulation to establish Global Entry as a permanent regulatory program 
and contains a detailed description of the program, the eligibility 
criteria, the application and selection process, and the initial 
airport locations. See 77 FR 5681 and 8 CFR 235.12. Travelers who wish 
to participate in Global Entry must apply via the CBP Global Entry Web 
site, or through the Global On-Line 
Enrollment System (GOES) Web site, 
Applications must be completed and submitted electronically.
    The twenty airports initially chosen for Global Entry were those 
facilities which typically experience the largest numbers of travelers 
arriving from outside of the United States. They include:
