CBP Expands Global Entry Pilot Program to Netherlands

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is conducting an international trusted traveler pilot program, “Global Entry,” at seven U.S. airports. Under an arrangement between the U.S. and the Netherlands, CBP is expanding eligibility for participation in the pilot to include citizens of the Netherlands who participate in Privium, an expedited travel program in the Netherlands, and who otherwise satisfy the requirements for participation in Global Entry. Currently, eligibility is limited to U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and U.S. lawful permanent residents (LPRs). Pursuant to this same arrangement, U.S. citizens who participate in the Global Entry pilot also will have the option to apply for participation in Privium.

The expansion of eligibility to qualified citizens of the Netherlands occurred on April 23, 2009.
