U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced today the Global Online Enrollment System (GOES) web site has been enhanced to facilitate the Trusted Traveler Program application process for Spanish-speaking travelers.

Trusted traveler programs provide expedited CBP processing for pre-approved, low-risk travelers and include NEXUS, SENTRI, FAST and Global Entry.

Travelers interested in becoming a Trusted Traveler Program member can apply by submitting their application online through GOES at https://goes-app.cbp.dhs.gov/. Applicants must voluntarily undergo a biographical background check against criminal, law enforcement, customs, immigration and terrorist indices; a 10-fingerprint law enforcement check; and a personal interview with a CBP officer at a program enrollment center.

Global Entry is available for U.S. citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents who are frequent international travelers. Biometric fingerprint technology is used to verify the passenger’s identity and confirm his or her status as a Global Entry participant. CBP launched Global Entry in June 2008 and has more than 28,000 members.
