“If you are a member of CBP’s Global Entry, Nexus or Sentri Trusted Traveler programs, you may be able to access certain dedicated screening lanes. In conjunction with this service, CBP is installing Global Entry kiosks at certain Canadian airports where travelers are pre-cleared to enter the U.S. so they do not have to go through immigration or customs at a U.S. port of entry. Kiosks are, or will be installed at Vancouver, Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto by the end of this month although when I was in Montreal last week CBP knew nothing about the program. 

CBP will be issuing members of the Global Entry program a Sentri RFID card for a $15 processing fee. Sentri is currently being used at the Otay Mesa, San Ysidro, and Calexico border crossings in California and the El Paso (Stanton Street Bridge) crossing in Texas.”



“The top contactless applications during the next five years are projected to be bank cards, government and healthcare ID cards, transportation and physical access cards. These four applications are projected to account for around 99% of units shipped in 2016.”


The Many Faces of Real ID

You may know them as Enhanced Driver’s Licenses, Speed Passes, Border Cards, Voluntary Transport Worker ID’s, CLEAR Airline Cards; these are the practical applied faces of Real ID.

RFID Construction Begins at Presidio Port of Entry
“Use of RFID will enable swifter processing at border crossings for travelers using new state-of-the-art travel documents. These documents include the passport card – a wallet-sized, cost-effective alternative to the traditional passport specifically designed for cross-border land and sea travel – and enhanced driver’s licenses being produced by several states. Washington State began producing an EDL in February and currently has issued over 21,000.”
