Global Entry Program
Is anyone using the US' Global Entry (Trusted Traveler) program successfully?
Does it provide significant time savings on return to the US (to justify spending the $100)?
I used the program with my boat, but that was different. Being able to call an (800) number and get the message: "Proceed to your port" was a huge time-saver. The qualifying interview was surprisingly extensive, I met with two CG officers and we talked for twenty minutes. This was at the inception of the program.
Being able to just check in at a kiosk and avoid the immigration and customs lines might make the difference between making that connecting flight, or missing it.
