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 wonít need any additional documents other than the requisite documents for international travel (e.g., your passport).

Enrollment on Arrival is only for international arrivals however there's no reason why you couldn't make an appointment at the Las Vegas Enrollment Center in Terminal 3 during your stay in Las Vegas. You can check appointment availability on this website: https://ttp.cbp.dhs.gov/schedulerui/...nal&service=UP

Thank you. I didn't know if I could or what side of security the center is in Terminal 3

Used "interview upon arrival" last week in MSP...took 5 minutes (didn't really take any extra time, because interview happened while waiting for luggage to start coming out).

Couldn't have been any easier (except just being approved unconditionally)

took new pic and did the finger prints again.

Highly recommended if choice is that or scheduling an interview.

That was Wednesday and checked this morning (sunday)and accounts says approved.

Is anybody able to tell me the process for completing Enrollment on Arrival at Atlanta Airport please? We will be arriving off an international flight. Do you have to go through the normal immigration line first or is there a separate line where you complete the interview and immigration formalities in one?

In MSP, I did the GE kiosk, took my receipt and then followed sign to the "enrollment on arrival" cubicle. It was just one of the normal podiums they have to stamp passports...just before the baggage claim area.

So you can use the GE kiosk before you've had your enrollment interview?

In my case it was a "renewal" interview.
(wife didn't need interview...I did...only difference was I had new passport last year and hers was same as when we originally applied...don't know if that is why I had to do it or not? only took 5 minutes)

Just a word of warning...when you complete this process, they take your picture! If I remember correctly the first time we applied and had our in person interview we were able to see picture before it was final...This time first time I saw it was yesterday when I received my new GE card in the mail...after 12 hours of traveling (with stocking cap on and then removed to take picture), my hair looks just like a disaster area!

This might be a more accurate photo for most travelers though!

Renewal GE membership applicants whose GE membership hasnít been expired for more than 6 months can use the GE kiosks before doing the renewal membership enrollment interview; most others, however, canít use the GE kiosks before the GE membership enrollment interview.

Thank you - I thought that was the case. This is our first time interview. What I was trying to ascertain through my question was whether at Atlanta we will be directed to a special line for GE Enrollment on Arrival or have to clear normal immigration first? I'm asking because our flight doesn't arrive until 8:05PM and I know GE Enrollment on Arrival closes at ATL at 9PM. If we have to clear immigration first it likely won't happen - if we don't then there might be a chance!

Enrollment on Arrival means enrolling during your chat with the arrival immigration officer. You do EOA during your arrival, so look for signs or ask before you reach the immigration officer.

Thank you. So do you have to go in the normal immigration line with everyone else who is not enrolling in GE or is there a separate line?

I made a point of wearing a flattering (such that can be for an old goat) blue shirt, not realizing the pics would be monochrome.

The are dedicated booths where EOA interviews are conducted; as @mnbp wrote above, look for and follow the EOA signs or ask the line minders.
