Brazilian can now apply for the Global Entry, a program that expedites entry into the USA

Posted by on

See the step by step for the application below

On February 7th, the American government announced that Brazilians may use the “Global Entry” program, which expedites the process of entry into the United States. Learn more below:

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW?

  • The program expedites the process of entry into the United States, but it does not, however, exempt applicants from the issuance of visas. The Global Entry traveler checks in at electronic kiosks, and is exempted from the long line of in-person service.
  • The application for the Global Entry is not automatic, and is subject to a discretionary assessment by the American government. The approval may take up to two weeks.
  • The fee is 100 dollars and is non-refundable. 
  • Upon approval, the applicant must schedule an interview upon their first arrival at the USA at a global entry enrollment center available in airports. Attention: not all American airports have centers with interview scheduling and not all American airports have program kiosks.
  • Check here the list of airports that have interview centers and here the airports that have Global Entry kiosks.  [PD1] [PD2] 
  • Once authorized, the admission will be valid for five years.
  • If you obtain a new passport or new visa, you must notify Custom and Border Protection officials in-person at an interview center at the airport, for an update of your data.

  • Once approved for Global Entry, you may also apply for the TSA Precheck! The TSA Precheck expedites the security screening process in flights inside the USA.
