Travelers departing the Bahamas through Nassau’s Lynden Pindling International Airport will experience an additional convenience beginning this week as U.S. Customs and Border Protection has installed Global Entry kiosks at the airport’s preclearance facility.

CBP’s Global Entry program provides expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers. Global Entry’s deployment at the Nassau preclearance facility, which allows U.S.-bound travelers to clear customs and immigration prior to boarding departing flights, provides an additional layer of efficiency for travelers. Travelers registered in Global Entry now account for nine percent of international air arrivals in the U.S., according to CBP officials.

“Global Entry is quick, easy, and efficient for travelers and allows CBP officers to focus on travelers they know less about prior to reaching the United States,” said Robert Allen Smith, area port director for CBP Nassau Preclearance.

Global Entry kiosks are located in 42 U.S. airports and 13 international airports with Preclearance facilities. These kiosk and Preclearance locations serve 99 percent of incoming travelers to the United States, according to CBP.

U.S. citizens, nationals, and permanent residents can apply for Global Entry, as can citizens of countries with which CBP has reciprocal agreements, including Mexico, the Netherlands, Germany, Panama, and the Republic of Korea. Canadian citizens and residents enrolled in NEXUS can also use Global Entry.
