Tzell Travel Group has launched its Global Enrollment program to help speed the customs process for its most frequent international travelers, in cooperation with the United States Customs and Border Protection Global Entry program. On July 27, Tzell will host its clients and supplier partners at its headquarters in New York City to facilitate expedited customs security clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers.
Global Entry allows travelers to re-enter the U.S. by using automated kiosks at select airports instead of completing Customs forms on the airplane and having to wait in line to go through Customs upon their arrival. Prior to their travel, clients must enroll in the accelerated program by completing an extensive application, undergoing a background check, and providing their passport information. Once they are preliminarily approved, they would typically be required to visit a participating airport location to finish the enrollment process. Through Tzell’s Global Enrollment, clients can avoid scheduling an appointment at an airport location to complete the enrollment process.
Tzell will have Customs officials on site with their computers and scanners. The July Global Enrollment date is one in a series planned throughout the year and is provided by Tzell as a complimentary service to its clients. Certain government fees do apply as part of completing the enrollment process.
