The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are working together. U.S. citizens, who are members of a CBP Trusted Traveler program, including Global Entry, SENTRI, and NEXUS can move through the security checkpoint at some airports.
Outbound: Going through security is pain, but it doesn’t have to be. Now you can keep your shoes, jacket, and belt on! Laptops and liquids in your bag.
Inbound: I have a Global Entry card and have used it frequently. It’s a real benefit to come in from a long international flight and breeze past the crowds waiting in long lines. The kiosk is easy to use and fast. If you frequently travel internationally, it’s worth the time and the money to get it set up.
