For Global Entry you need to be a US citizen or a Green Card holder. Citizens from UK, Germany, Netherlands, Panama, Mexico and South Korea are eligible as well. Canadian Citizens have a version called Nexus for which if you qualify then you get Global Entry automatically. TSA pre check requires you to be a US Citizen or Green Card holder or have Global Entry. Bad news on both front I am afraid.

Thank you M1. Have the same question

No but maybe you can look at CLEAR?

D1 - if you upvote the original post, you are automatically notified of any updates to that thread. Not the most elegant solution but works.

We aren't .both for global and tsa.it sucks

D2, can you elaborate? Delta automatically gives you pre check on random flights because you are diamond, or do you get pre check as a gift(vs getting upgrade certificates) for a year for reaching diamond?

Looks like we'll be able to avail global entry in a few months! http://indianexpress.com/article/india/mou-signed-to-facilitate-hassle-free-entry-of-indians-into-us-2833703/
