Global Entry Trusted Traveler Network Program

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

IAH 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.

Applicants no longer need to schedule an interview at an enrollment center to complete the application.  Upon returning to the U.S. on an international flight to IAH, applicants may fulfill the interview portion during CBP processing.  Directional signage in the immigration hall will indicate the Global Entry Enrollment booth where a CBP officer will complete the arrival into the U.S. and the Global Entry interview.

The program is for those who have applied for Global Entry online at and have received conditional approval.
