SAN DIEGO (Border Report) — U.S. Customs and Border Protection is offering “Enrollment upon Arrival” at many airports such as San Diego International Airport for its Global Entry program.

The program allows pre-approved, low-risk travelers arriving on international flights to skip CBP inspection lines.

All that is needed for conditional approval into the program is a valid passport, driver’s license and a document that shows residency in the United States such as a utility or credit card bill.

Once a traveler is conditionally approved, a future interview is no longer required. The traveler can complete the enrollment interview when arriving on an international flight.

CBP officers at airports, such as San Diego International, will interview and collect the traveler’s biometrics to complete the enrollment. This can be accomplished after clearing CBP processing.

As an added benefit, according to CBP, Global Entry members are also eligible to participate in the TSA Pre✓™ expedited screening program, which allows travelers the use of special lanes that don’t require shoe removal and other requisites when going through TSA screening for both international and domestic flights.

Cost to enroll in the program is $100 and is good for five years.
