The Los Cabos Convention & Visitors Bureau, together with Marco Antonio Covarrubias, Governor of Baja California Sur, announced that Los Cabos is slated to implement Global Entry kiosks for international travelers arriving at the San Jose del Cabo International Airport (SJD). This is the first airport in Mexico selected for this program.
Beginning on May 24, Global Entry kiosks will be stationed within the airport to allow pre-approved, low-risk travelers to avoid standing in line and proceed directly to the kiosk for expedited clearance upon arrival to Los Cabos.
Additionally, Los Cabos will become the only destination in Mexico to offer border pre-clearance, which provides added convenience for travelers upon arrival as well as departure. In the case of the latter, U.S. Customs agents will be stationed at SJD to provide streamlined border and customs procedures, significantly reducing the amount of time required to clear customs upon reentry to the U.S.
This new service, beginning later this year, also enhances ease of travel and expediency from regional gateways, where airports may not be equipped to process customs directly.
