Global Entry is a program operated by CBP to allow for the expedited clearance of pre-approved low-risk air travelers into the United States.  The program currently allows U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent resident aliens and citizens of certain other countries to apply.  Enrolled Global Entry members are allowed to use automated kiosks at designated airports to bypass the regular Passport Control queues, and enter the United States without routine CBP questioning (unless chosen for a selective or random secondary referral).  



U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has a pilot program in place with the United Kingdom Border Agency (UKBA) which allows invited U.K. citizens to apply for and participate in the Global Entry Program. 


In order for British citizens to submit an application for Global Entry, a promotional code must be provided CBP has allocated a limited number of Global Entry pilot program promotional codes to BABC Houston. These codes will be available to British BABC Members in good standing only.  To request a code, e-mail Becci Himes at info@BABCHouston with Global Entry in the subject line. Instructions on how to apply for the program will be e-mailed to you along with the code. For information on becoming a BABC member, check our website.
