United States and Israel Sign Global Entry Pact
Global Entry is a program run by the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. Global Entry members bypass standard lines when reentering the United States and clear passport control at a kiosk that looks like an ATM. In most cases, members can also bypass the standard customs lines after reclaiming luggage (if checked).
Enrollment in Global Entry costs $100 for five years and American Express will pay the fee for U.S. Platinum and Centurion cardholders.
The agreement was signed in Israel by U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman. The agreement also calls for expedited clearance for U.S.-based Global Entry members arriving in Israel.
