CBP is proposing a harmonized membership fee of $120 for the SENTRI, Global Entry, and NEXUS trusted traveler programs. But children could enroll for free.
Today, the Department of Homeland Security announced it will lift its ban on the Trusted Traveler Program (TTP) for New York residents.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced plans to start reopening Global Entry Enrollment Centers in early July.
