CBP, Qatar collaborate on secure travel initiatives

CBP, Qatar officials meet

As the nation of Qatar moves to open a new international airport in 2013, the nation began initial meetings with U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials concerning passenger screening and other security procedures at the facility.

On May 25, CBP officials met with officials from the Qatar Ministry of the Interior at CBP headquarters in Washington, DC.

CBP Commissioner Alan Bersin discussed several secure travel concepts with Qatar Minister of Interior Sheikh Abdulla Nasser Al Thani and other Qatari officials, according to the agency. Qatar plans to open a new airport in its capital of Doha by 2013. The country is considering hosting world sporting events in the next decade and expressed interest in working with CBP on innovative travel enterprises, it said.

Bersin and Al Thani discussed CBP’s Immigration Advisory Program, an initiative to protect air travel and improve security by sharing techniques and information with international partner governments. They also spoke about cooperation on CBP’s Global Entry program, which expedites security clearance for pre-approved, low-risk air travelers. If a joint Global Entry arrangement moved forward, Qatar would be the first Middle East state to offer the facilitated travel service to air passengers, said CBP.

Through dialogue and cooperation, “we build a relationship to solve cases that would be more difficult to solve without a good working relationship,” said Bersin. The two leaders agreed to continue efforts to develop meaningful advances to secure travel between their two governments, said the agency.
