Video by Robert Frongello
Package of CBP’s Trusted Traveler Programs which support one of our core missions, to facilitate trade and travel by expediting low-risk, frequent travelers’ entry process into the U.S. when arriving at our ports of entry. Soundbite from CBP Commissioner Alan D. Bersin. Global Entry is a voluntary pilot program that streamlines the international arrival process for pre-approved travelers through use of self-service kiosks located at 20 major U.S. airports. The pilot program is an alternative to regular passport processing lines and currently reduces average wait times by 70 percent. NEXUS is a joint CBP-Canada Border Services Agency program that both implemented to enhance border security while simplifying the entry process for pre-approved, low-risk travelers. NEXUS was established in 2002 and currently has more than half-million members. Secure Electronic Network for Travelers Rapid Inspection or SENTRI provides expedited CBP processing for pre-approved, low-risk travelers entering the U.S. at land ports of entry from Mexico. The FAST (Free and Secure Trade) program offers dedicated lanes and expedited border clearance for importers, carriers and drivers who have passed rigorous risk assessments that include fingerprinting.
