MEMPHIS, Tenn.—U.S. Customs and Border Protection will open a Global Entry enrollment center at the Memphis International Airport beginning on September 15. Conditionally-approved Global Entry applicants can now register for an interview with a CBP officer at the Memphis location on the Global Online Enrollment System (GOES) website. Global Entry, a CBP Trusted Traveler Program, allows for expedited clearance of pre-approved, low-risk travelers.
“CBP is looking forward to expanding the Global Entry Enrollment program to Memphis International Airport.” said Pat McCumber, CBP area port director.
The enrollment center will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. CBP officers will only interview Global Entry applicants with appointments. The Global Entry Enrollment Center is located at 2491 Winchester Suite 230 Memphis, TN. 38116
Interested individuals may apply online at CBP’s Global Online Enrollment System. Applicants must possess a machine-readable U.S. passport or a machine-readable permanent resident card, pay a non-refundable $100 application fee, undergo a background investigation with fingerprint check, and complete an in-person interview with a CBP officer at one of the more than 90 Trusted Traveler enrollment centers. Global Entry membership is good for five years.
Currently available at 49 U.S. airports and 13 Preclearance locations, Global Entry streamlines the screening process at airports for trusted travelers. Global Entry members bypass the traditional CBP inspection lines and use an automated kiosk to complete their admission to the United States. The program has enrolled more than 3.1 million members, and CBP receives approximately 100,000 new applications for Global Entry each month. As an added benefit, Global Entry members are also eligible to participate in the TSA Pre✓™ expedited screening program.
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.
