f you travel regularly to the United States and would like to speed


through airport immigration controls upon arrival, the US Embassy has a special opportunity to enroll in Global Entry, the US Customs and Border Protection travel facilitation program that expedites clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival at a US airport. Members of the program can


enter the US through separate lanes and kiosks at


international


airports. Membership also includes TSA Pre, a program which off ers expedited security screening when departing from a US airport, so that you don’t need to remove shoes, laptops, liquids, belts and light jackets. A fi ve-year membership for US citizens costs $100.


US Citizens US citizens can apply for Global


Entry at the US Customs and Border Protection website www.cbp.gov. You will be asked to provide your passport information, employment details, your last fi ve years of travel and address


history and provide 6


bank card information to pay the The American


membership fee. Once you’ve completed the online application, US Customs and Border Protection will contact you to let you know if you have been tentatively approved, and if so will invite you to schedule an interview to complete the process. More information, including video


a message from US


Ambassador Matthew Barzun, can be seen at www.usembassy.org.uk/ specialrelationshipmagazine. Ordinarily, enrollment requires


an interview that can be completed only when you are within the United States. In early December 2015, however, a Global Entry mobile enrollment team visited London, allowing you to complete enrollment before your next trip to the United States.
