WASHINGTON, DC – US Customs and Border Protection announced today that Global Entry kiosks are now available at four additional international US airports.

WASHINGTON, DC – US Customs and Border Protection announced today that Global Entry kiosks are now available at four additional international US airports.

Approved members returning to the US use the Global Entry kiosk as an alternative to the regular passport control line. At the kiosk, Global Entry members will activate the system by inserting their passport or US permanent resident card into a document reader. The kiosk will direct travelers to provide digital fingerprints and will compare that biometric data with the fingerprints on file.

Global Entry travelers will be prompted to answer declaration related questions on the kiosk’s touch-screen. A transaction receipt will be issued upon completion that must be presented to CBP officers prior to leaving the inspection area.

The program’s expansion to Los Angeles International, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, Chicago O’Hare International and Miami International airports was announced on August 12. The enrollment centers at these sites are expected to open later this month. Global Entry applicants will be able to complete their interview and biometric data collection at these sites.

Global Entry kiosks also will be installed at additional terminals at John F. Kennedy International Airport on October 17.

The Global Entry pilot program began June 6 at JFK International, George Bush Intercontinental and Washington Dulles International airports. To date, approximately 3,500 members have already enrolled and over 1,100 Global Entry members have used kiosks at the three existing pilot locations.

Global Entry is open to US citizens or lawful permanent residents.
