Global Entry is one of those things that you don't know you need until you have it - IYKYK!!! To put it plan and simple, Global Entry is a U.S. Customs & Borders Protection program that gives travelers what we like to call the expedited fast pass for when you arrive back in the United States after an international trip. Can you imagine going on the best luxury vacation and then flying back home to have to stand in line, waiting to go through customs when all you want to do is go home?! That is not the way to end your perfect trip and that is why we highly encourage all our clients to apply for Global Entry. If you're still not sure what Global Entry is or what the difference is between Global Entry and TSA pre-check is make sure to read my article about whether or not Global Entry is truly worth it. Here are just a couple of the benefits you can look forward to with Global Entry:
- No processing lines
- No paperwork
- Access to expedited entry
- Available at major U.S. airports
- Reduced wait times
It's truly a value that can't be beat when it comes to international travel. If you already have TSA pre-check but no Global Entry then you've only gotten a glimpse of the fast pass when it comes to the security line but just imagine bypassing the chaos that is customs -- yes, it's that good!!
Okay, okay so now we're all on board with applying for Global Entry, right?!?! YES!!! So what's the catch to this exclusive fast pass? Well that's the thing...the waiting time once you've applied. For people applying it is taking upwards of 6 months to get an appointment. So procrastinating is not ideal when trying to get Global Entry for a trip you have planned in the next few months. But as your luxury travel concierge service we've of course got a work around for you! Enter Appointment Scanner - aka the golden ticket!!
