GE is better for traveling abroad if you have small kids. After you come out of the flight, you will directly go to Kiosk, scan you face, complete customs related questions and go directly to pick your luggage.

But application process is little time taking process.

Once you apply, your application will be sent to one of the two queues for conditional approval. If your application ends up in faster queue, you will get conditional approval in a week. But if you are unlucky, your application might go to slower processing queue, where it might take more than 3 months to get approval. I suggest not to apply for all family members on same day, to increase the chance of going into faster queue.

I applied for all 4 of us at same time..2 of ended up in faster queue and for the other 2, it took 3 months. So better apply one application per day.

After you get approval, you can either schedule an interview at participating airport locations or you can opt to get the interview done when coming back from international trip.

For scheduling interview at airport location, you can use appointment scanner service for $29. When a slot opens up at the selected location, you will get a text message. You will need to book the slot within 5 min of getting that message.

I attended interview in Austin airport and it’s fairly easy process. They asked some generic questions, took biometrics and approved the application.

Each member of the family needs to apply separately and attend interview in their own time slot. Parent can accompany kid for their interview.

Cost is $100 per application for 5 years. If you travel frequently abroad this will save time on entry. It also comes with TSA pre check, which you can use for domestic travel.

As this process is time consuming, some people just opt for TSA pre check. So, if you time and patience for for GE.
