Hartford, Conn. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection opened its latest Global Entry Enrollment Center in New England today at Bradley International Airport, bringing the total number of enrollment centers for the Boston Field Office to seven.
The Global Entry Program provides expedited clearance for pre-approved low-risk international travelers and members of these programs can expect expedited processing when entering the United States using automated kiosks at airports. As an added benefit, Global Entry members are also eligible to participate in the TSA Pre✓™, the Transportation Security Administration’s expedited security program.
“This latest enrollment center introduces Global Entry to Bradley International Airport for the first time, and highlights the continued success of the Global Entry program as a whole,” said Boston Area Port Director, Clint Lamm. “An enrollment center in Connecticut provides a convenient location for travelers in southern New England to complete their enrollment without having to travel as far as Providence or Boston.”
“We’re pleased to be expanding our growing menu of services with the opening of Bradley’s Global Entry Enrollment Center,” said Connecticut Airport Authority Executive Director Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E. “At Bradley, we want our passengers to love the journey and this new service reinforces that and our continued efforts to make travel convenient and easy.”
The new Global Entry Enrollment Center in Hartford, Conn. is located in the International Arrivals Building at Bradley International Airport and open Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is open exclusively to Trusted Traveler Program applicants who have applied for membership through the Global On-line Enrollment System (GOES) and have had their applications conditionally approved. Conditionally approved applicants can now schedule or change their previously scheduled interview to the Bradley Enrollment Center through the GOES website.
Travelers interested in enrolling in one of CBP’s Trusted Traveler Programs can learn more about the programs and apply online using the CBP’s Global On-line Enrollment System (GOES).
