The Enrollment on Arrival service, which is rapidly expanding, may be the perfect alternative to long interview waits. The 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. When this service launched in 2017, it was available at just five airports, but that number has gone up considerably. Now, it’s available at these 45 airport locations throughout 26 states (plus 15 locations across six other countries), ensuring you expedite your Global Entry process while simultaneously clearing customs from an international trip.

If you plan to take advantage of the Enrollment on Arrival service, follow the signs directing you to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers who can complete your Global Entry interview during your admissibility inspection. You won’t need any additional documents other than the requisite documents for international travel (usually, your passport). If you don’t see signs, just ask an airport employee or a CBP officer where to go. Interviews typically take between 5 and 15 minutes, and you should know by the end if you’ve been approved.
If your Global Entry membership is subsequently approved, your fingerprints will be collected, your photo will be taken and you’ll have your membership for five years.
When applying, remember that you can get a statement credit for Global Entry (which also gives you TSA PreCheck) for up to $100 through a number of different credit cards, including:
- Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card ($95 annual fee) — credit every four years
- United Explorer Card ($95 annual fee, waived the first year) — credit every four years
- IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card ($89 annual fee, waived the first year) — credit every four years
- Bank of America® Premium Rewards® credit card ($95 annual fee) — credit every four years
- Chase Sapphire Reserve ($550 annual fee) — credit every four years
- Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite™ Mastercard® ($450 annual fee) — credit every five years
- The Business Platinum Card® from American Express ($595 annual fee; See Rates & Fees) — credit every four years
- Citi Prestige® Card (increased fee of $495) — credit every five years
- The Platinum Card® from American Express ($550 annual fee; See Rates & Fees) — credit every four years
The information for the Citi Prestige has been collected independently by The Points Guy. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.
Plus, The Platinum Card® from American Express and The Business Platinum Card® from American Express waive the fee even for additional cardholders. So, if you pay the $175 standard fee for three authorized users (See Rates & Fees) ($300 per authorized user for business cards; See Rates & Fees), they can all get rebates for their own Global Entry memberships.
