Description: The following passage is talking about global entry login, in which the author answers you what TSA PreCheck is, what the difference between Global Entry and TSA PreCheck is, what the costs are associated with them and how to apply for them.
I had so many requests from you to write this article that I had to do it immediately, hopefully this will answer what TSA PreCheck is, what the difference between Global Entry and TSA PreCheck is, what the costs are associated with them and how to apply for them.
Stick around. I’m going to answer all these questions, let’s get into it, what is TSA PreCheck? let’s think of TSA PreCheck like a Fast Pass, you enter in a separate line and go through security much faster because it’s hassle-free, meaning you don’t have to remove your belt, shoes, outerwear, hats, your laptop and liquids stay in the bag. If you’re a frequent flyer, this will help cut down your time significantly, pre-checked equals Fast Pass.
What’s the difference between global entry and pre-check? Global Entry means that you can clear customs much faster on arrival into the US because you’re considered a low-risk traveler, if you travel internationally either once or twice a year, you will consider getting Global Entry over TSA PreCheck because you automatically get pre-check if you have Global Entry.
What are the costs associated with these programs? TSA PreCheck will cost you $85, Global Entry will cost you $100, but like I mentioned before if you have Global Entry, you automatically have TSA PreCheck, be mindful that it does not work the other way around.
Think about that before you make your decision, these programs last five years, you’re paying very little for the value that you’re getting, on top of that Airlines and credit cards have promotions or reimburse you if you use their credit cards to apply for these programs.
Check your airline website and your credit card website to make sure that you are up-to-date on the policies and how to use that credit card to apply, you can potentially get it for free if you use your airline credit cards or other credit cards that offer the same services.
You may want to know how I apply for these programs, if you want to apply for TSA PreCheck, you go to www.tsa.gov, if you want to apply for Global Entry, you go to www.cbp.gov, I will link those in the description below, you will have them accessible to you at all times.
The application process is easy, it’s all online, you fill out your standard information and your passport information, then it will prompt you to set up a face-to-face appointment at one of their local enrollment offices, the face to face interview is for them to have peace of mind that you’re a low-risk traveler, this works the same way for TSA PreCheck and Global Entry.
You’ll get your fingerprints done, your picture taken and all your documents set up, the process probably takes two to three weeks because appointment times in your specific area could vary, make sure to set up these appointments before your trip.
I hope that this article answered all your questions that you were having about TSA PreCheck and Global Entry, these programs are created for the travelers, utilize it, apply for the one that fits your travel habits the best, if you liked this article, please comment, share with your friends, family, colleagues or whoever you think will benefit from this article, thanks.
