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).

Has anyone done EOA at PHL? I have a reasonably tight connection and the lines there can be huge.......How does it work? Can I use the GE terminal as normal and then head somewhere for my interview? Or do I need to line up with all the other standard arrival passengers and ask for the interview when I am called to a booth?

If PHL is like other airports, there should be a dedicated booth for EOA interviews.

Thanks - given I am renewing, should I use the GE terminal first to enter the US and then seek out the booth? Advice here is mixed on that.

Some places, as at LAX which is my home airport, there are CBP employees directing arriving international passengers to the correct lines. If there are such people at PHL, I'd ask.

I'm trying to remember the setup at PHL (I arrived internationally there only once). I think that there are CBP officers stationed right where you exit the GE kiosk area. If there is no wait or a short wait to use the GE kiosks, I'd use the kiosk and then ask the officer for advice on how to proceed with the EOA.

Hi everyone,

I have received my conditional approval and will be doing Enrollment on Arrival when landing into MCO next month. My wife does not have GE (we did not do her application due to shutdown) - does she have to go through APC on her own - in fact she will be arriving with ESTA but on new passport, so is she even eligble for APC?

Basically - will I be waiting for her for hours??

This question is really off-topic for this thread.

Please check the following threads:
Automated Passport Control (APC) machines with a new ESTA

(I realize that this is the reverse of your situation, however, there is a link there linking to a post discussing a situation similar to hers, new passport with existing ESTA.

If you want to try your luck, you may wish to apply for your wife now. If she is lucky, she may receive her conditional approval within two weeks. Shen can then do her Enrollment on Arrival with you at MCO next month.

Has anyone done the enrollment on arrival at YYZ? My wife and one-year-old son are coming through YYZ in about a week. They will be flying AC so T1.

Based on my trip last week, Nexus/Global Entry enters from the back, while general entry enters from the front. It was a rather confusing setup, as I saw an US airline crew going back and forth, not knowing where to go and being send to opposite sides a couple of times.

Does anyone know which entry they should take?

Yes, looking for the answer to this. My wife and I will be traveling back into ATL with our conditionally approved 4 year old and 10 month old next month. My wife and I both have GE, so I'm wondering if we use the Kiosks and go that way, or if we will have to go a different direction when we arrive

Well, EoA is a total disappointment at EWR. Got here around 6 something in terminal C and used mobile passport (no one seems to use it) to go through custom. Officer processed my form and try to find someone to do global entry interview but no one around. Told me to go to terminal B office to interview. The guy over there said they dont accept walk in. Appointment only.

Oh well. Time to schedule an appointment.
