A new rule published by U.S. Customs and Border Protection Monday will allow air passengers arriving in the United States to move more quickly through customs and immigration inspections. The rule will allow more travelers to provide their fingerprints at kiosks to expedite their arrival. "Global Entry expedites the customs and security process for trusted air travelers through biometric verification, while helping DHS ensure the safety of all airline passengers," Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said. "Making Global Entry permanent will improve customer service at airports across the country and enable law enforcement to focus on higher-risk travelers."
