Earlier this month, I applied for Global Entry for the first time in preparation for my upcoming trip to Singapore in October. Much to my non-surprise, I couldn't secure an in-person interview at my home airport, or any others nearby, ahead of my trip.

Completing an interview is the final step of the Global Entry application process. However, many travelers, like myself, have been unable to schedule one successfully due to an ongoing backlog of applicants for various trusted traveler programs, including TSA PreCheck.

Due to this backlog, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has advised applicants who have been conditionally approved, like me, to interview through Enrollment on Arrival. This service allows you to complete your Global Entry interview as part of the immigration process when arriving at the airport after an international trip, so you don’t need to worry about scheduling it at a later date.

Through this option, I'll be able to complete my Global Entry interview when coming back to Chicago from Singapore, since O'Hare International Airport (ORD) is among the 64 airports offering Enrollment on Arrival for travelers. I can take advantage of skipping long immigration lines since users can complete the customs process in as little as 45 seconds, per CBP.

If you are considering enrolling in Global Entry, be sure to use a credit card offering a statement credit for the $100 application fee. Once you are enrolled, reference this guide for the list of 75 airports (and counting) where you can use Global Entry, both domestically and internationally.

Enrollment on arrival locations

As mentioned earlier, CBP allows travelers who have been conditionally approved for Global Entry to satisfy the interview portion of the application process at 64 airports via Enrollment on Arrival.

This service is only available for travelers returning to the U.S. from an international flight. Although appointments are not required, you'll want to verify the office hours at the airport at which you plan on enrolling, which can be found online.

To locate the appropriate office, "follow the signage directing you to CBP officers who can complete your Global Entry interview during your admissibility inspection," according to CBP, which should be located near the regular customs line.

In addition to your passport, remember to bring one document showing proof of residency in your specific state, such as a driver's license, utility bill, rent payment statement or mortgage statement.

Once you complete your interview, it may take a few minutes to process your application fully, but you should then be able to bypass the normal immigration line.

Bottom line

Global Entry is an investment in your time, which as travelers we all value, especially after returning from an international flight that is often accompanied by long travel days and possible flight delays.

Given its popularity among users, expect to see Global Entry expand to other airports throughout the U.S. and abroad. We will update this story when new Global Entry locations are added.
