In 2015, the UK teamed up with the US to allow UK citizens to join Global Entry. The service, which was previously available to US citizens and permanent residents, along with citizens of Germany, Mexico, the Netherlands, Panama and South Korea, helps those entering the US get through immigration quicker. Whereas UK citizens used to have to come to the US for their Global Entry interview, they can now do it from London.

This week, US Customs and Border Protection announced that it was going to open a Global Entry enrollment center at the US Embassy in London. This new enrollment center isn't permanent — it's set to open for 60 days starting September 26. As always with Global Entry, applicants must be pre-approved before being able to schedule an appointment at the new location.

UK citizens can now schedule their interview appointments for Global Entry in London.

The application process will work the same for UK citizens as it previously did, they will just select the London enrollment center option for their interview appointment. UK citizens will register through the government website, pay 42 GBP, and once approved, they'll complete the GOES application (and pay $100) and then interview with an agent. The new London US Embassy enrollment center will be open Monday through Wednesday from 8:00am through 4:30pm. It's located at 24 Grosvenor Square in London.

This is a convenient way for UK-based travelers to get access to Global Entry. No longer do they have to travel to the US in order to be approved for Global Entry — they can do it right from London. Don't forget there are several credit cards that offer a fee waiver for Global Entry and TSA PreCheck, such as the Amex Platinum and Citi Prestige.
