DHS/CBP/PIA-002 Global Enrollment System (GES)


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) operates Global Entry, a program that provides dedicated processing for pre-approved travelers arriving in the United States. Program participants volunteer to provide personally identifiable information (PII) and consent to CBP security vetting in return for expedited processing at designated U.S. Ports of Entry (POE) or for access to sensitive CBP-controlled areas or positions. CBP is updating this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to provide notice to the public regarding the upgrade of Global Entry kiosks with facial recognition technology to facilitate traveler identification and entry processing.
