Since getting Global Entry last year, I've noticed my arrivals in the USA have become much more tolerable (could I go as far as saying…fun?!). I've hardly had to anticipate any worries due to the automated kiosks, and I also get PreCheck when flying within and out of the States.
Though it was never intended that way, after the sign up for UK citizens got withdrawn back in December 2013, my post on how to get the revered ‘promotion code' started to act as a waiting list for those who missed out. The list is still getting longer and I'm delighted to see there's still an active interest for us Pommies.
I stumbled across this Government Digital Service blog about the UK's Registered Traveller Scheme. Since its trial allowed US citizens to use the e-passport gates normally reserved for EEA Citizens, I had long hoped that this would rekindle the reciprocal agreements needed to allow Global Entry for UK citizens.
There is an interesting comment by the moderator posted just last week:
[Carrie Barclay – 11th August 2015] A service called “Register to apply for US Global Entry” will be launched later in the year which will enable British Citizens to then obtain Global Entry membership. We cannot confirm a commencement date yet but we will provide an update in early November. Thanks
Short of a fixed start date that sounds pretty official and promising to me, so I've set a reminder in my calendar for early November to check back on their page. In the meantime, if you're still interested in getting GE, I suggest leaving your details and a comment on the waiting list, so when the scheme re-launches I can send an email to everyone who requested it.
