NEW YORK CITY--- U. S. Customs and Border Protection officers from John F. Kennedy and Newark Liberty International Airport will host a Global Entry Enrollment event with United Airlines at the carrier’s ticketing office located at Penn Station.
This Global Entry Mobile Enrollment event will run from June 26th until July 28th (it will be closed for the Fourth of July), Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
This mobile enrollment site allows potential enrollees to the Global Entry program to conduct their enrollment process in mid-town Manhattan in addition to the Custom House on lower Broadway, John F. Kennedy International or Newark Liberty International Airports.
“CBP is excited to be at Penn Station in the heart of New York City, to provide commuters with a convenient temporary location to enroll in the Global Entry program,” said Leon Hayward, Acting Director, Field Operations New York.
“We are always pursuing new ways to improve the airport experience for our customers and offer them convenient opportunities to enroll for innovative programs like Global Entry and TSA Precheck,” said Greg Hart, United’s executive vice president and chief operations officer. “We thank CBP for supporting this enrollment event at Penn Station and working with us to further improve the travel experience for our customers.”
Global Entry is a CBP program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Though intended for frequent international travelers, there is no minimum number of trips necessary to qualify for the program. Participants may enter the United States by using automated kiosks located at select airports. TSA Pre✓® eligibility is also granted to Global Entry members.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
