I’ve never met someone who loves going through Customs and Immigration upon arrival back in the United States. You’re tired after a long flight, possibly jet-lagged, trying to find your luggage, and frustrated with the long, snaking lines.
Here’s how I beat the hassle. I signed up for Global Entry in 2012, shortly after it debuted. GE is a program run by the US Department of Homeland Security and the US Customs and Border Protection that gives travelers who undergo a background check a priority pass to skip the lines upon preparing to enter the US at 59 airports. Trust me: it’s as slick as it sounds.
