Global Entry members bypass traditional CBP inspection lines and use an automated kiosk to complete their admission to the United States. As an added benefit, Global Entry provides access to the TSA Pre✓™ expedited screening program. Global Entry members can use their membership number as a “known traveler number” in airline reservations to receive TSA Pre✓™ benefits.
All Japanese Global Entry members must have a valid passport and a valid visa or approved Electronic System for Travel Authorization’s (ESTA) application to receive Global Entry benefits and must maintain updated passport/visa information with CBP. If you obtain a new visa, or obtain a new passport, you must notify CBP either through your account dashboard or in-person at a Global Entry enrollment center. If the visa information is incomplete or not properly updated by CBP, the Global Entry kiosk may incorrectly calculate your class of admission and admission date.
