The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Indianapolis Airport Authority have launched two Global Entry kiosks for international passengers.
Global Entry kiosks will allow faster CBP clearance for pre-approved, low-risk passengers arriving from international destinations at the Indianapolis International Airport (IND).
CBP Indianapolis port director James Moore said: “We are very excited to offer Global Entry Kiosks to low-risk international travellers arriving in Indianapolis. This valuable programme expedites CBP processing, reduces wait times, and benefits the travelling public and the local business community.”
The kiosks open two months ahead of IND’s first nonstop transatlantic flight to Paris in May.
Indianapolis Airport Authority executive director Mario Rodriguez said: “Providing amenities like this not only make travelling more convenient for passengers, but it reflects on their overall impression of the airport.”
“We rely on and appreciate our airport partners, like customs, TSA and the airlines in helping us identify and develop programmes and amenities that provide an excellent customer experience.”
Despite using Global Entry for faster processing, members may still be subjected to further examination when entering the US.
The CBP stated that applications must be completed and submitted online through the Trusted Traveller Program on its website.
Users will have to pay a non-refundable $100 application fee per person online at the time of the application. The membership is valid for a period of five years.
