Global Entry Program

The Customs & Border Protection Global Entry program is available at McCarran International Airport and provides an electronic passport control process for pre-approved travelers enabling users to avoid waiting in line at the immigration checkpoint, making international travel to Las Vegas quicker and easier.  Global Entry allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Though intended for frequent international travelers, there is no minimum number of trips necessary to qualify for the program. Participants may enter the United States by using automated kiosks located at select airports.

Model Ports Initiative

McCarran International Airport participates in the Model Ports initiative which was launched by the Departments of Homeland Security and State to present a warmer welcome to travelers and provide a more intuitive process by improving signage, communications, and using technology to facilitate entry.

The goals of Model Ports are straightforward:

  • Ensure that passengers entering the United States are welcomed by Customs and Border Protection officers who treat them with respect and understanding;
  • Provide the right information to help travelers, at the right time and in a hospitable manner;
  • Create a calm, pleasant Customs waiting area;
  • Streamline the Customs process.
