CBP Global Entry Enrollment Center
CBP extends Global Entry enrollment
center hours during the summer in
Baltimore, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

Currently available at 53 U.S. airports and 15 Preclearance locations, Global Entry streamlines the international arrivals process at airports for pre-approved, low-risk, trusted travelers. The more than 4 million Global Entry members bypass traditional CBP inspection lines and use an automated kiosk to complete their admission to the United States.

As an added benefit, Global Entry members are also eligible to participate in the TSA Pre✓™ expedited screening program.

U.S. citizens, U.S nationals and U.S. lawful permanent residents may apply for Global Entry as well as citizens of certain countries with which CBP has trusted traveler arrangements, including Argentina, Colombia, Germany, Mexico, the Netherlands, Panama, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and now India.

Canadian citizens and residents enrolled in NEXUS may also use the Global Entry kiosks.

Travelers interested in becoming Global Entry members must first apply online through the Global Online Enrollment System (GOES).  Once an applicant receives a conditional approval notification, he/she must schedule their appointment for an interview through the Global Online Enrollment System.

The in-person interview with a CBP officer at the Global Entry Enrollment Center is the final step of the enrollment process.  During the interview, the officer asks questions, collects biometric information, and demonstrates how to use Global Entry kiosks.

Citizens and residents enrolled in NEXUS and SENTRI may also use the Global Entry kiosks.
