How to Apply for Global Entry

Just follow these steps.

Before applying, make sure you are eligible for Global Entry.

  1. Create a Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) account

    Regardless of your age, you must have your own Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) account.

  2. Log in to your TTP account and complete the application

    A $100 non-refundable fee is required with each completed application.

  3. Schedule an interview at a Global Entry Enrollment Center

    After accepting your completed application, CBP will conduct a review. If your application is conditionally approved, your TTP account will instruct you to schedule an interview at a Global Entry Enrollment Center. Each applicant must schedule a separate interview.  (Please Note: 80% of applications are approved within 2 weeks while some applications can take up to 12 months or longer to be processed.)

  4. Complete the application process

    Bring your valid passport and one other form of identification, such as a driver’s license or ID card, to the interview. If you are a lawful permanent resident, you must present your machine readable permanent resident card.

Non-Refundable Application Fee

A $100 one-time fee is required with your Global Entry application and must be paid at time of application submission through the Trusted Traveler Program (TTP) system. You can pay by credit card or through an electronic bank transfer.

The fee is non-refundable, even if an application is denied.
