1 Million Enrolled in CBP’s Trusted Traveler

On May 6, CBP announced that its international trusted traveler programs have reached one million members.  The programs included Global Entry, NEXUS, SENTRI and FAST.

Commissioner Bersin stated that “CBP’s Trusted Traveler Programs support one of our core missions, to facilitate travel and trade by expediting low-risk, frequent travelers’ entry process into the U.S. when arriving at our ports of entry”.  He urged frequent travelers to enroll in the program that best suits their needs.

The role of CBP’s trusted traveler programs become increasingly important given the constraints on the number of CBP officers.
