First there was Global Entry. Now there's Smart Gate. Not to be confused with Watergate, but if I thought about it for a few seconds, I'm sure I could come up with some similarities.
This week I got an email from DoNotReply@departmenthumanservices/usgovernment. There is another quick-entry program Charley and I can apply for. To Australia. It's called Smart Gate.
The notification warns that this program is by no means an ENTITLEMENT! What do the Aussies think Americans feel entitled to over there? A brewery?
The email warns, however, that the eight cities in Australia that employ Smart Gate have limited gates and kiosks operational. Others are under construction. Australian Customs and Border Protection apologizes for delays this may cause.
