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.
Program members present their machine-readable passport or U.S. permanent resident card, place their fingerprints on the scanner for fingerprint verification and complete a customs declaration. The kiosk issues the traveler a transaction receipt and directs the traveler to baggage claim and the exit.
Global Entry membership includes the TSA Pre✓ benefit.

Global Entry Enrollment on Arrival
HOU is one of five airports selected by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to offer Enrollment on Arrival. The program shortens enrollment wait times for Global Entry by speeding the interview process.
Enrollment on Arrival is a program operated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to allow Global Entry applicants who are conditionally approved to complete their interviews upon arrival into the United States. The Enrollment on Arrival program eliminates the need for a Global Entry applicant to schedule an interview at an enrollment center to complete the application process.
When landing in an international terminal follow the signage directing you to 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 (e.g., your passport).
If you would like to save time and effort, then join thousands of other Global Entry applicants who are conditionally approved and participate in Enrollment on Arrival.
The program is for those who have applied for Global Entry online at https://ttp.cbp.dhs.gov and have received conditional approval.
