Starting May 8, 2017, Citizens of Argentina can begin applying to enroll in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) "Global Entry" Trusted Traveler Program.

Argentina becomes the tenth country overall whose Citizens will be eligible to enroll in Global Entry. In addition to Argentina, Citizens of Colombia, Germany, Mexico, the Netherlands, Panama, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom may apply for Global Entry membership. Canadian Citizens and residents enrolled in NEXUS may also use the Global Entry kiosks.

About The CBP Global Entry Program

The CBP Global Entry Trusted Traveler Program allows for expedited clearance of pre-approved, low-risk travelers coming to the U.S. It streamlines the screening process at airports for trusted travelers, and is currently available at 52 U.S. airports and 15 Preclearance locations. The Global Entry program allows its members to bypass traditional CBP inspection lines and use an automated kiosk to complete their admission to the United States, thus reducing processing time.

How To Apply For Global Entry Membership

Citizens of Argentina will be able to apply for Global Entry using the Global Online Enrollment System (GOES). The application seeking Global Entry membership must be submitted online through GOES. There is a non-refundable application fee of $100 for a five-year Global Entry membership.

Once the application is approved, the applicant will schedule an interview with a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer to determine the applicant's eligibility.
