United States: Global Entry Opens to All Eligible Citizens of Singapore

The Global Entry Trusted Traveler Program has been extended to qualifying citizens of Singapore, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has announced. Singapore becomes the second country in Asia and seventh country overall whose citizens are eligible to enroll in Global Entry.
Successful applicants will benefit from expedited immigration and customs clearance when they enter the United States through a participating airport.

Singapore has extended reciprocal benefits to U.S. citizens. Qualified individuals can now enroll in the enhanced-Immigration Automated Clearance System (eIACS), Singapore’s expedited entry program for prescreened travelers.

How to Apply for Global Entry Membership

S ingaporean citizens interested in Global Entry membership must set up an account in GOES (CBP’s online application portal), complete an application, and pay a $100 non-refundable fee.

Applicants are subject to background checks and an in-person interview at a Global Entry Enrollment Center. Once the background check is complete, CBP will notify applicants whether or not they have been accepted into the program.

Global Entry membership is valid for five years, though a violation of program rules could result in revocation of membership privileges.
