Global Entry
« on: April 26, 2018, 03:10:37 PM »
I have previously sign myself and my wife up for Global entry, however I am now going to be traveling with my kids (3&5) to Israel. Do I need to pay for them as well? Additionally, My wife is pregnant and is due about 3 months before we go to Israel. Do I need a Global Entry for the newborn? If I do, is there a way to speed up the process since the passport process will also take a little bit of time?

TIA

no point getting GE for children since they can't get fingerprinted. download mobile passport instead

Last time I came through with infant I was yelled at for coming with someone without GE, I applied for her and now she's conditionally approved.... What will they do by the interview?

she can't be fingerprinted so you'll have to see an agent whenever you come into the country anyway. use mobile passport

I've used it, it's great but I still prefer GE.

For me who still didn't sign up for GE, I can't go wrong with this, better then nothing.
   GE/TSA PRE check are still a huge advantage when flying out of the US being able to cut all the lines to get past security.

When traveling with kids, mobile passport is a no brainier. I still think it's faster than ge even without kids

Was no wait for me, and I doubt you'll have to wait, they sent me to the agent meant for GE who have problems with the Kiosk, so it's mostly empty and 2 agents sitting around, it took between 5-10 min.
Easy smooth process.

And don't forget to bring proof of address, although on site it says just your passport, but the agent wouldn't process without proof.

A regular drivers license wouldn't work?

Probably would. I have my old address on my license so..
I just downloaded a bank statement and they accepted it.
