Global Entry: Interview slots available at the US embassy in London

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection announces slots for the Global Entry program in London.

Global Entry is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Members enter the United States through automatic kiosks at selected airports.

Interviews are normally held at enrolment centres in the United States but until 10th March 2017, you can attend an interview at the US embassy in London.

How to Apply for Global Entry
Before you apply, make sure you are eligible for Global Entry.

Just follow these steps:
1. Create a Global Online Enrollment System (GOES) account. Regardless of your age, you must have your own GOES account.
2. Log in to your GOES account and complete the application. A $100 non-refundable fee is required with each completed application.
3. After accepting your completed application and fee, CBP will review your application. If your application is conditionally approved, then your GOES account will instruct you to schedule an interview at a Global Entry Enrollment Center. Each applicant must schedule a separate interview.
4. You will need to bring your valid passport(s) and one other form of identification, such as a driver’s license or ID card to the interview. If you are a lawful permanent resident, you must present your permanent resident card.

To arrange your interview
You need to apply for Global Entry on the CBP website using your UK access code.

It takes around 2 weeks to get ‘conditionally approved’. You will then be invited to attend an interview, which you can choose to attend at an enrolment centre in the US or the US embassy in London.

At the interview, a CBP officer will check your passport and take your fingerprints. It takes about 15 minutes.

After your interview and when your membership is confirmed, you can:
• Use the automated kiosks at US airports on arrival – you will not need to see a CBP officer or fill in a paper customer declaration.
• Go to the front of the line if you are referred to a CBP officer.
• Use the Global Entry exit lanes.
• Go through security screening faster.

Important note

If you have already completed this process, please make your Travel Executive aware at the time of booking.
