Do you ever get confused between Global Entry and TSA Pre-Check? If your answer is “no,” feel free to go back to what you were doing (thanks for reading anyway).
According to U.S. Customs & Border Protection, “Global Entry is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States.” In short, it allows travelers to bypass the lines at customs and immigration by checking in at a kiosk with an entry pin number-your – “Trusted (Known) Traveler number”- and a fingerprint scan. The kiosk then spits out a receipt, and travelers can proceed to baggage claim, customs, and the exit. Global Entry also includes TSA PreCheck eligibility in participating airports.
