U.S. Customs and Border Protection announces two Global Entry mobile enrollment events in Indianapolis. CBP will conduct interviews for conditionally approved Global Entry applicants during this enrollment event.
Global Entry is a voluntary expedited clearance program for pre-approved low-risk international travelers, who are processed by biometric identification using a designated kiosk, rather than waiting in line for entry processing by a CBP officer when entering the U.S. at a participating airport. The kiosks speed entry by reducing wait and processing times.
To become a conditionally approved Global Entry applicant, individuals must apply online, undergo a background investigation and complete an in-person interview with a CBP officer. If no disqualifying information is found, travelers receive the benefit of expedited processing with Global Entry. The $100 application fee allows for five years of membership.
“CBP’s goal for this enrollment event is to provide a convenient, local venue for conditionally approved Global Entry applicants to complete the required interview with a CBP officer,” said Port Director James Moore.
The two separate enrollment events will take place on April 19-20 and May 3-4 at the Indianapolis International Airport.
Travelers interested in applying for Global Entry may apply online using the Trusted Traveler Program. With the enrollment event quickly approaching, applicants should start the application process now.
Global Entry also provides access to the TSA Pre✓™ initiative, which offers expedited screening through domestic airport security checkpoints. Benefits of TSA Pre✓™ include being able to leave shoes, light outerwear and belts on, and not having to remove laptops from carrying cases.
