CBP Proposed Rule re SENTRI, NEXUS, Global Entry

Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 175 / Wednesday, September 9, 2020

"U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) operates several trusted traveler programs at land, sea and air ports of entry into the United States that allow certain pre-approved travelers dedicated processing into the United States, including the Secure Electronic Network for Travelers Rapid Inspection (SENTRI) program, the Global Entry program, and the NEXUS program. CBP seeks to harmonize the fees and application procedures for these three programs. In this document, CBP proposes to change the Global Entry and SENTRI application fees to a uniform amount, provide a uniform standard regarding the payment of the Global Entry and SENTRI application fees for minors, change the fee payment schedule and certain aspects of the application process for the SENTRI program, and incorporate the SENTRI program into the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regulations. CBP also proposes to make changes to the Global Entry regulations that are consistent with the program’s expansion to certain U.S. territories and preclearance facilities. Finally, CBP proposes to eliminate the separate dedicated commuter lane systems costs fee (DCL fee) currently applicable only to approved SENTRI participants. CBP will be issuing a separate notice in the Federal Register regarding changes to the NEXUS fee. DATES: Comments must be received on or before November 9, 2020."
