Global Entry Trusted Traveler Network

Commerce Lexington Inc. and Blue Grass Airport have partnered to bring Global Entry enrollment to Lexington's Blue Grass Airport in August.

The Global Entry program allows low-risk, pre-screened international travelers to have expedited entry into the United States. Upon arriving in the United States, members proceed directly to an automated Global Entry kiosk — bypassing passport control lines and paper customs declarations. Global Entry members are also eligible for TSA Pre-Check, which expedites security screening at U.S. airports. Membership is good for five years.

The program requires applicants to complete an in-person interview with U.S. Customs and Border Protection — which typically must be conducted at one of only a few dozen locations across the United States. For instance, the interview site nearest Lexington is the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG). However, with this special partnership, Global Entry Interviews will be held August 26-30 at Blue Grass Airport.
