Back in August, we wrote about the new Enrollment on Arrival offered to Global Entry applicants awaiting an interview (which as many will know can be a long wait). As noted in that post, via Chris McGinnis, it works like this: “The program is designed for individuals who have been conditionally approved for Global Entry pending a personal interview at a Global Entry Enrollment Center. Instead of scheduling an interview, the traveler arriving at an Enrollment on Arrival airport can now finish the interview requirement during a CBP primary inspection.”
Back in August, the option was available at just five airports—but as of December 20, the list includes 19 airports (17 in the U.S. and two in Canada):
- Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX)
- John Wayne Airport (SNA)
- Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC)
- San Diego International Airport (SAN)
- San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
- Denver International Airport (DIA)
- Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI)
- Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW)
- Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport (MSP)
- Philadelphia International Airport (PHL)
- Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS)
- Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW)
- Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH)
- San Antonio International Airport (SAT)
- William P. Hobby Airport (HOU)
- Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC)
- Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA)
- Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ)
- Vancouver International Airport (YVR)
Here’s more on how it works from The Points Guy (who wrote about this when 16 airports were involved) and here’s the official CBP Enrollment on Arrival page.
