The U.S. Customs and Border Protection has added Brazil to the Global Entry program, giving Brazilian citizens traveling for leisure and "certain business purposes" access to expedited processing upon arrival.
CBP in November 2019 launched a pilot program with Brazil to test Global Entry with a small number of business travelers, and Brazil now is ready for "full partnership and membership in Global Entry," according to CBP executive director of admissibility and passenger programs Matthew Davies. Brazil is the 13th country to have full arrangements with Global Entry, joining Argentina, Colombia, Germany, India, Mexico, the Netherlands, Panama, South Korea, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.
Global Entry membership currently stands at 10 million participants, and CBP expects to receive 3.5 million applications this year.
In a statement, U.S. Travel Association president and CEO Roger Dow said Brazil's addition Global Entry was "welcome news" but also urged CBP to address ongoing delays in visa processing. "On average, visitor visa wait times in Brazil are 233 days," Dow said. "Pre-pandemic, Brazil was the fifth-largest overseas inbound market, and it is crucial that visa processing fully resumes so we can restore this critical source market."
