Applying for Global Entry

I applied for TSA Pre-check three years ago and used the expedited service through security.  It was an easy application process and a brief interview at a local transportation licensing center.  Last week I applied for Global Entry, which enables a quicker re-entry process to the U.S. in airports from international destinations using a kiosk to fill out your declaration instead of going through the cue. Global Entry also provides a card for quicker crossing at landed borders (Canada and Mexico). Global Entry also provides you with TSA Pre-check, which benefits you from both programs.  Again, it was an easy application and interview, taking only about five minutes.  The only downside was that the only center near Mobile for the interview was the Gulfport airport, about an hour’s drive. The website offers several centers across the county where the interview can be conducted.  I recommend both as they are timesavers when traveling domestically or abroad.

Update, there is now a sign up center at the Mobile Regional Airport
