Fast Track Services will enroll applicants into Global Entry if they are not members - there is no additional cost for this except for the US government fee of $100 for the US background and security checks. Once they have been accepted onto the program Fast Track Services will apply to the Korean Immigration Service (KIS) for SES membership. All SES applicants must attend an interview at one of the SES enrollment centers in Korea. The interview must be scheduled within 30 days from the day of conditional approval but the SES interview can take place within 6 months from the day of booking. US citizens can use the Smart Entry Service for 5 years from the date of acceptance onto the SES program however if their passport expires before this date they must reapply for membership and pay all eligible fees. You will not receive an entry or exit stamp when you use the SES gate, however you can ask a KIS immigration officer for a passport stamp if you need one.
