U.S. Customs and Border Protection continues to expand the reach of its trusted traveler programs, today announcing that Global Entry kiosks have been installed at the Vancouver International Airport. The Vancouver Airport already had NEXUS installed, an older trusted traveler program, but the agency is now attempting to integrate the two programs.
Global Entry is a voluntary program which permits travelers to expedite their inspection, after going through a pre-approval process for the program. The program is available to U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents (green card holders). Some other country nationals may be admitted into the program as well, such as Mexican and Netherlands nationals. The non-refundable application fee is $100.
