I was inspired to ask as a follow-up to this question: Denied US Entry in 2012. Is this on my PERMANENT record?

If you are regularly being taken for secondary inspections at the US border, will applying to enrol for the US Global Entry program help to resolve these types of issues? Or would the applicant likely to just be rejected on the same basis for which they are regularly getting pulled aside?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

    IF you’re approved for Global Entry, you are good to go. However Global Entry to my knowledge is for checking your profile, not fixing flags on your profile. For that reason I expect you will simply be denied by Global Entry and the saga continues. The UK on the other hand has a mechanism for removing flags which should be removed. – user 56513 Feb 6 at 9:59
  • Also, be aware that if you apply for Global Entry and are denied, your application fee is not refundable. – DoxyLover Feb 7 at 1:08
