Program members first swipe their passports or resident card at the kiosk. They will then be instructed to scan their fingerprints and answer some declaration questions to compare with data on file. A transaction receipt will be issued upon completion that must be presented to Customs and Border Protection officers prior to leaving the inspection area.
The program is currently only open to U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. Those wanting to participate in the program must apply online or at an enrollment center at the airport.
