    Title: Trusted Traveler Programs and U.S. APEC Business Travel 
Card.
    OMB Number: 1651-0121.
    Form Numbers: 823S (SENTRI) and 823F (FAST).
    Abstract: This collection of information is for CBP's Trusted 
Traveler Programs, including the Secure Electronic Network for 
Travelers Rapid Inspection (SENTRI), which allows expedited entry at 
specified land border ports of entry along the U.S.-Mexico border; the 
Free and Secure Trade (FAST) Program, which provides expedited border 
processing for known, low-risk commercial drivers; and Global Entry, 
which allows pre-approved, low-risk air travelers expedited clearance 
upon arrival into the United States.
    The purpose of all of these programs is to provide prescreened 
travelers expedited entry into the United States. The benefit to the 
traveler is less time spent in line waiting to be processed. These 
Trusted Traveler Programs are provided for in 8 CFR 235.7 and 235.12.
    This information collection also includes the U.S. Asia-Pacific 
Economic Cooperation (APEC) Business Travel Card (ABTC) Program, which 
is a voluntary program that allows U.S. citizens to use fast-track 
immigration lanes at airports in the 20 other APEC member countries. 
This program is mandated by the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation 
Business Travel Cards Act of 2011, Public Law 112-54, and provided for 
by 8 CFR 235.13 and 8 CFR 103.7(b)(1)(ii)(N).
    The data is collected on the applications and kiosks for the 
Trusted Traveler Programs. Applicants may apply to participate in these 
programs by using the Global On-line Enrollment System (GOES) at 
https://goes-app.cbp.dhs.gov. Applicants may also apply for SENTRI and 
FAST using paper forms (CBP Form 823S for SENTRI and CBP Form 823F for 
FAST) available at http://www.cbp.gov or at Trusted Traveler Enrollment 
Centers.
    After arriving at the Federal Inspection Services area of the 
airport, participants in Global Entry can undergo a self-service 
inspection process using a Global Entry kiosk. During the self-service 
inspection, participants have their photograph and fingerprints taken, 
submit identifying information, and answer several questions about 
items they are bringing into the United States. When using the Global 
Entry kiosks, participants are required to declare all articles being 
brought into the United States pursuant to 19 CFR 148.11.
    Current Actions: This submission is being made to extend the 
expiration date with no change to the burden hours. There are no 
changes to the information collected.
    Type of Review: Extension (without change).
    Affected Public: Individuals and Businesses.
