Global Entry Members Can Now Skip the Line in Australia As Well

Nice perk for Global Entry members (that’s apparently been available for a bit, but I just received an email about it): Since late last year, Australia has been allowing American Global Entry members to skip the passport line when they arrive in Australia. Members of Global Entry, NEXUS and SENTRI can participate in Australia’s SmartGate program, which allows for expedited entry into the country.

This program is available to those flying into Australia who are 16 years of age or older and possess an e-passport (if you received you passport after 2007, you have an e-passport, as there is a chip embedded in there someplace).

To take advantage of this program, you don’t need to enroll in SmartGate – simply skip the line upon arrival in Australia. Details here.
