Global Entry for Citizens of Croatia

How to apply for Global Entry:

Citizens of Croatia can apply for Global Entry through U.S. Custom and Border Protection’s (CBP) Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) website.

Application Process:

  1. Apply Online: Complete a TTP online application and pay the $100 non-refundable application fee. Your application will be vetted by the competent authorities of the United States of America and the Republic of Croatia to assess whether your application is deemed eligible.
  2. Schedule an Interview: Once your application is reviewed, you will receive a message in your TTP account instructing you to schedule an interview at one of the Global Entry Enrollment Centers . If you are unable to schedule an in-person interview, you may opt to use the Enrollment on Arrival (EoA) option that is immediately available upon arrival to the U.S. aboard an international flight.  No appointment is required for the EoA process. Additional information regarding EoA is available on the Enrollment on Arrival website
  3. Interview Determines Your Eligibility: A U.S. Customs Border Protection officer will ask you questions, take your photo, and collect your fingerprints.
  4. Provide Identification: 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.

Maintaining Global Entry Membership:

Membership in the Global Entry program is valid for five years. Once approved, Global Entry members interested in maintaining benefits beyond five years must submit a renewal application prior to the membership expiration date through the TTP website.

Other Benefits:

Citizens of Croatia enrolled in Global Entry do not receive a Global Entry card for use at land border crossings, but are eligible to participate in Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Precheck for air travel throughout the U.S.  Visit the TSA Precheck program website for more information.

Travel Requirements:

All Croatian Global Entry members must have a valid passport and a valid visa or approved Electronic System for Travel Authorization’s (ESTA) application to receive Global Entry benefits and must maintain updated passport/visa information with CBP.  If you obtain a new visa, or obtain a new passport, you must notify CBP either through your account dashboard or in-person at a Global Entry enrollment center.  If the visa information is incomplete or not properly updated by CBP, the Global Entry kiosk may incorrectly calculate your class of admission and admission date.
