Global Entry


U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers will be at the Global Business Travel Association Convention in Dallas in August 2023, to conduct in-person enrollment interviews for CBP’s Global Entry program. Global Entry allows expedited clearance for preapproved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Participants may enter the U.S. using automated kiosks or touchless portals located at 62 U.S. airports, and 15 preclearance sites.

Global Entry approval also allows U.S. travelers to be eligible to participate in the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Pre✓®program, which expedites screening through TSA checkpoints at participating airports.

How to Apply

To participate in the interview process at the GBTA Convention, you must follow these steps:

  • Visit the Trusted Traveler Programs website and review the available programs.
  • Step 1: Create a Trusted Traveler Program (TTP) account.
  • Here, you must first create an account and then log in to submit an application. When applying, be sure to only select the Global Entry option. A $100 nonrefundable application fee must be paid online at the time you apply.
  • Once your application has been reviewed, you will receive a message in your account notifying you of the results.
  • If you are “conditionally approved” for Global Entry, you will be invited to schedule an interview at the event.

Interviews will be conducted at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center Dallas in room C144.
