U.S. And Israel Agree On Immigration Fast Track

05/18/2012

The United States and Israel are set to add Israelis to a fast-track immigration system.

Yediot Ahronoth reported Thursday that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman have agreed to add Israel to the “Global Entry” program, which was negotiated during a recent trip of Homeland Security officials to Israel.

For a $100 fee, frequent business travelers undergo a thorough security clearance. Once cleared, they enter the United States through a biometric fingerprint check, skipping passport checks.
