Global Entry Pass: What You Should Know About It

One of the best and most efficient travel tools is the Global Entry Pass.


It allows you to return home from abroad. Simply put your password into a kiosk reader, match your fingerprints, and in less than 90 seconds, you’re cleared.


This means no more two-hour customs and immigration line following a 10-hour flight.


And now, here’s some additional good news: you can now use your Global Entry Pass for up to a year after it expires, as long as you’ve requested to renew it by its expiration date.


And while the card costs about $125, you can get it for free with the Chase Sapphire Reserve card, the Capital One Venture Rewards card, the Bank of America Premium Rewards Visa, and the Platinum card from American Express.
