Step 1: Complete your Global Entry application
The application takes about 20 minutes to complete. You’ll need your valid passport or U.S. permanent resident card, driver’s license or other ID. You’ll have to fill out a comprehensive history, including your current and previous addresses for the past five years, employment history for the past five years, and international travel history for the past five years.
The history portion is the most time-consuming. Once you complete your application and are “conditionally approved,” you will be asked to schedule your in-person interview.
Step 2: Pay your application fee
There's a non-refundable $100 application fee that must be paid to complete the application and confirm your in person interview.
Step 3: Schedule and attend your in-person interview
