British Travellers will soon be able to skip US Immigration Queues

Passport 2Any Brit who has travelled to the USA has experienced the feeling of joy having reached their holiday destination only to be forced to queue for ages to get through the Immigration queue. However, from the 3rd December 2015 Brits will be able to join a new scheme which will allow them to skip the notoriously long queue following the expansion of the Global Entry Scheme.

The new scheme which is already available at 46 US airports including John F. Kennedy Airport in New York and Orlando International Airport will allow for faster processing of pre-approved low risk travellers.

However, the new application process is fairly lengthy and costs over £100 so frequent travellers may well be more inclined to apply. It is thought around 125,000 British citizens travel to the UK more than 4 times a year and it is most likely to appeal to them.

Applicants will have to register via the Home Office website and pay a £42 fee, if accepted they will be given an access code to enter when applying for Global Entry through Global Online Enrolment System.
