April 20, 2017 - U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will host a Global Entry enrollment event at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017, conducting interviews for conditionally approved Global Entry applicants. The Global Entry program allows expedited entry into the United States at 47 U.S. airports and 13 preclearance locations around the world for prescreened, low-risk travelers. Global Entry participants are processed for entrance into the U.S. at designated kiosks rather than waiting in line for processing by a CBP officer.
To become a conditionally approved Global Entry applicant and participate in the enrollment event at AirVenture, individuals must first apply online and undergo a background investigation with the CBP’s Global Online Enrollment System (GOES). With the convention quickly approaching, any applicant wishing to take advantage of this opportunity needs to start the application process immediately. CBP strongly suggest that applications are submitted no later than June 20, as the application vetting process typically takes two weeks for conditional approval.
Interviews will be held from Monday, July 24 through Sunday, July 30 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. inside the Federal Pavilion. If no disqualifying information is found, travelers receive the benefit of expedited processing. The $100 application fee allows for five years of Global Entry membership.
Global Entry also provides access to the TSA’s PreCheck initiative, which offers expedited screening through domestic airport security checkpoints. Benefits of TSA PreCheck include being able to leave shoes, light outerwear and belts on, and not having to remove laptops from carrying cases.
