US Customs & Border Protection recently announced that children of all ages can apply to use the Global Entry kiosks at major US airports to expedite entry into the USA.

Your child must be one of the following:

US citizen or legal permanent resident

Canadian Citizen or legal permanent resident

Mexican Citizen.

Your child’s Global Entry application must contain supporting documentation otherwise your child may be denied admission to the Global Entry program. All infants and children require the consent of a parent or legal guardian to apply for Global Entry. Global Entry applications for children are scrutinized in the same way as an adult Global Entry application; however fewer child applications for Global Entry are denied as few children have criminal and immigration violations compared to adult Global Entry applicants. In most cases when a child is denied Global Entry, the reason comes down to incomplete or inaccurate information provided on the application form.

You can apply for a child Global Entry pass even if you or their other parent or guardian is not a Global Entry member. Parents who share custody of their children should carry copies of the legal custody documents. It is also recommended that they have a letter of authorization from the other custodial parent to take the child on a trip out of the country. Such a letter will confirm that the child is not being abducted or taken against his or her will. The parents’ full name, address and telephone number should be Included in the letter of authorization.

All infants must attend a compulsory Global Entry interview at a Global Entry Enrollment Center of your choice. At the interview, children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by at least one parent or guardian who has legal custody of the child; families will be interviewed in one meeting. The parent or guardian must present documentary evidence proving their custodial rights and proof that there are no restrictions on the child’s removal from the custodial jurisdiction. The Global Entry officer will scrutinize the documents to ascertain that the parents or guardians applying for Global Entry membership for children is actually the parents or legal guardians of the child applicant.

Inaccurate or incomplete application forms are automatically denied access to the Global Entry program.
