Activate your Global Entry Card To activate your card, sign in to your Trusted Traveler (TPP) account. Once you have logged in, click on the “Activate Membership Card” button in the Members section of the program. Using your global input card We accept Global Entry Cards for legal US entries at land and sea ports of entry. Global Entry cards are equipped with radio frequency identification chips that allow them to be used on SENTRI and NEXUS traffic lanes when entering the United States at land borders. You must follow all program rules for SENTRI when using this card at the Southern Land Border Entry Ports. You can use this card to quickly enter the US via the SENTRI and NEXUS channels. The card is not valid for entering Canada through NEXUS channels. Only your passport or legal permanent resident card is accepted at the Global Entry kiosks. The Global Entry card can not be used at Global Entry kiosks. NEXUS cards are accepted at Global Entry kiosks located at Canadian airports for pre-screening.

In the USA, biometric facial recognition technology is now installed in several international airports: Orlando, Miami, Atlanta, New York, JFK, San Diego, Houston (Intercontinental and Hobby), Washington Dulles, Las Vegas, Chicago O’Hare and pre-control sites in Aruba, Abu Dhabi and Ireland (Shannon and Dublin). CBP has also implemented face-to-face comparison technology for arrival processing at 10 sites, which includes four pre-check sites. The new, simplified arrival process improves safety, speeds up flow and improves efficiency.

 CBP is committed to meeting its privacy obligations and has taken steps to protect the privacy of all travelers. CBP has published several privacy impact assessments, used strong technical security measures, and limited the amount of personally identifiable information used in the new biometric process.
