PORT CLINTON, Ohio — U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations in Port Clinton, Ohio to hold Global Entry Seminar to travelers interested in applying for the Trusted Traveler Network.
Global Entry is a CBP program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Members enter the United States through automatic kiosks at select airports.
At airports, program members proceed to Global Entry kiosks, present their machine-readable passport or U.S. permanent resident card, place their fingerprints on the scanner for fingerprint verification and complete a customs declaration. The kiosk issues the traveler a transaction receipt and directs the traveler to baggage claim and the exit.
The seminar being hosted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officers at the Sandusky Bay Station will explain the process and answer any questions for travelers who are considering applying for Global Entry.
The seminar which is open to the public will be held on March 14, 2016 at 10:00am at the Sandusky Bay Station, located at 709 SE Catawba Road, Port Clinton, Ohio 43452.
The Sandusky Bay Station Global Entry Enrollment Center opened earlier this month and is open seven days per week from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (please check the Global Online Enrollment System for other appointment times) .
Travelers interested in attending the seminar being hosted at the Sandusky Bay Station are asked to RSVP to Customs and Border Protection Officer James Wray at: James.H.Wray@cbp.dhs.gov
