Anyone use Global Entry?

Jump to last reply

Has anyone here signed up for the Global Entry program? It looks pretty slick. If you have a U.S. passport, you can get advance clearance to enter the United States. You apply on line, set up an appointment for an interview, have your photo and biometrics taken. Then when you enter the U.S., you bypass the normal passport lines and go to a special Global Entry kiosk. I guess you scan your passport, and the machine takes your fingerprints and scans your eyes. Or something like that. You get a dedicated customs line too. :)

It's $100 for five years, but it seems worth it to me if you travel internationally frequently. I think I'm going to do it after the first of the year. Just wondering if anyone else here has signed up.
