If you have done any international traveling lately, you know firsthand what a “ People Zoo” looks like! It is the line you stand in at Immigration when coming back from outside the country. When a half dozen Jumbo jets come in at the same time, it can take upward to an hour to get through the line. WE know. WE have been there.
Well, there is a solution to this problem. It is called Global Entry. Without a doubt, this is one of the best $100 investments a traveler can make. You can read all about the government program by going to www.globalentry.gov. To apply for the program you simply fill in the form and pay your $100. Once you get a clearance, they mail back to you date and time options to make an appointment to do the final in person interview at the airport. I must warn you that not all airports handle this operation. It is mostly the larger international airports. Please review the list of airports before signing up. If you happen to have one in your city, you are in luck in more ways than one!
Some airports are now allowing Global Entry passenger to go through security without having you disrobe, take your shoes off, pull out your laptop or display your toiletries to the world. Best to check with your airport and or airline to see if this is an option at your terminal. Finally, something has been done to help weary travels get through the airport hassles.
