Section 235.12 contains a description of the program, the eligibility criteria, the application and enrollment process, and redress procedures. Travelers who wish to participate in Global Entry must apply via the Global On-Line Enrollment System (GOES) Web site, https://goesapp.cbp.dhs.gov, and pay the applicable fee. Applications for Global Entry must be completed and submitted electronically. The list of airports with Global Entry kiosks is available at http://www.globalentry.gov. Eligibility for participation in Global Entry is limited to U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, U.S. lawful permanent residents, and certain nonimmigrant aliens from countries that have entered into arrangements with CBP regarding international trusted traveler programs. Specifically, certain nonimmigrant aliens from countries that have entered into arrangements with CBP concerning international trusted traveler programs may be eligible to apply for participation in Global Entry after CBP announces the arrangement by publication of a notice in the Federal Register. The notice will include the country, the scope of eligibility of nonimmigrant aliens from that country (e.g., whether only citizens of the foreign country or citizens and non- VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:30 Jul 11, 2016 Jkt 238001 citizens are eligible) and other conditions that may apply based on the terms of the arrangement.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

Global Entry Program

    Global Entry is a voluntary program that allows for dedicated CBP 
processing of pre-approved travelers arriving in the United States at 
Global Entry kiosks located at designated airports. In a final rule 
published in the Federal Register (77 FR 5681) on February 6, 2012, CBP 
promulgated the regulation (8 CFR 235.12) to establish Global Entry as 
an ongoing voluntary regulatory program. Section 235.12 contains a 
description of the program, the eligibility criteria, the application 
and enrollment process, and redress procedures. Travelers who wish to 
participate in Global Entry must apply via the Global On-Line 
Enrollment System (GOES) Web site, https://goes-app.cbp.dhs.gov, and 
pay the applicable fee. Applications for Global Entry must be completed 
and submitted electronically. The list of airports with Global Entry 
kiosks is available at http://www.globalentry.gov.
    Eligibility for participation in Global Entry is limited to U.S. 
citizens, U.S. nationals, U.S. lawful permanent residents, and certain 
nonimmigrant aliens from countries that have entered into arrangements 
with CBP regarding international trusted traveler programs. 
Specifically, certain nonimmigrant aliens from countries that have 
entered into arrangements with CBP concerning international trusted 
traveler programs may be eligible to apply for participation in Global 
Entry after CBP announces the arrangement by publication of a notice in 
the Federal Register. The notice will include the country, the scope of 
eligibility of nonimmigrant aliens from that country (e.g., whether 
only citizens of the foreign country or citizens and non-citizens are 
eligible) and other conditions that may apply based on the terms of the 
arrangement. See 8 CFR 235.12(b)(1)(ii). In the preamble of the Global 
Entry final rule, CBP recognized the existence of previous arrangements 
it had with Mexico and the Netherlands regarding the international 
trusted traveler programs and announced that Mexican nationals and 
certain citizens of the Netherlands were eligible to apply for the 
Global Entry program. CBP further specified that Mexican nationals and 
citizens of the Netherlands who were existing participants in the 
Global Entry pilot would be automatically enrolled in the ongoing 
Global Entry program. CBP also stated that pursuant to a previous 
Federal Register notice,\1\ participants in NEXUS and certain

citizens of the Republic of Korea who are participants in the Smart 
Entry System (SES), a trusted traveler program for pre-approved, low-

also announced a Global Entry pilot for a limited number of German 
citizens who participated in ABG Plus, Germany's former trusted 
traveler program.
    In a notice published in the Federal Register (81 FR 7822) on 
February 16, 2016, CBP announced the conclusion of the limited pilot

certain U.S. citizens may apply for membership in EasyPASS, Germany's 
registered traveler program.
    In a notice published in the Federal Register (80 FR 1509) on 
January 12, 2015, CBP expanded Global Entry eligibility to include

Limited Global Entry Pilot for Certain Citizens of the United Kingdom

    In the August 9, 2013 notice referenced in the previous section, 
CBP also announced a limited Global Entry pilot program allowing a 
limited number of British citizens who frequently travel to the United 
States to apply for participation in Global Entry. During this limited 
pilot, certain British citizens who were identified as potential 
participants in the pilot program, received a promotional code from a 
British airline carrier, the U.S. Embassy, or CBP to use during the 
application process. These applicants were required to obtain a police 
certificate to be presented to a CBP officer at the time of the Global 
Entry interview to demonstrate that they had no criminal history. The 
United States and the United Kingdom limited the number of British 
citizens who could apply for Global Entry to allow for the development 
of the program's infrastructure. The notice stated that CBP expected to 
be able to expand eligibility to include all British citizens in the 
near future and that such an expansion would be announced by notice in 
the Federal Register and on http://www.globalentry.gov.
Expansion of Global Entry Program To Include All Citizens of the United

    To apply for Global Entry, the applicant will be required to 
complete the online application located on the GOES Web site, pay the 
non-refundable Global Entry fee, and satisfy all the requirements of 
Global Entry. During the application process, the applicant will also 
be required to enter the UK Access Code on the GOES Web site. If an

Access Code prior to applying to Global Entry, the Global Entry 
application will not be accepted. The applicant will be permitted to 
participate in Global Entry only upon successful completion of a risk 
assessment by CBP and completion of an interview with a CBP officer.\3\ 
CBP will notify the applicant whether or not he or she has been 
accepted in the Global Entry program.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ The vetting criteria to be used by both the United Kingdom 
Border Agency and CBP were mutually agreed upon by both agencies and 
are consistent with each agency's applicable domestic laws and 
policies.
