I travel to 20+ countries a year sharing my firsthand knowledge of reward travel, travel credit card deals, travel tips and more. If you subscribe to my free daily travel tip newsletter or listen to my travel segment on Leo Laporte’s The Tech Guy every Saturday, then you know I’m always touting Global Entry and TSA PreCheck. Global Entry is arguably the best thing to to international travel since lie-flat seats. The expedited customs clearance program began in 2008, costs $100 for five years and is for pre-approved low-risk air travelers entering the United States. It’s available to U.S. citizens, U.S. lawful permanent residents and eligible citizens from the following countries: Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, India, Germany, Panama, Singapore and the United Kingdom.
