How to Apply for Global Entry

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

It’s easy. Just follow these steps:

  1. Create a Global Online Enrollment System (GOES) account. Regardless of your age, you must have your own GOES account.
  2. Log in to your GOES account and complete the application. A $100 non-refundable fee is required with each completed application.
  3. After accepting your completed application and fee, CBP will review your application. If your application is conditionally approved, then your GOES account will instruct you to schedule an interview at a Global Entry Enrollment Center. Each applicant must schedule a separate interview.
  4. You will need to bring your valid passport(s) 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 permanent resident card.
