Taipei, Feb. 7 (CNA) Taiwan’s plan to join the United States Global Entry program, which would allow Taiwanese travelers easier entry into the U.S., will not be affected by U.S. President Donald Trump’s immigration ban, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Tuesday.

Representatives of the U.S. and Taiwan signed a joint statement last April regarding Taiwan’s participation in the Global Entry program, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) program that allows expedited clearance of pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the U.S.

Citizens from the participating countries may clear U.S. immigration by using the automated kiosks at 47 U.S. airports and 13 other pre-clearance locations.
