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).

Well that answers that. I am Curious why some preclearance do it and not others. It's been ages since went direct from DUB. Are they incredibly busy? Short staffed? Just trying to figure out the logic.

Just applied a week ago for my toddler daughter and she was shockingly conditionally approved within a week. Unfortunately the next appointment at any airport within 2 hours driving is a few days after we're scheduled to land at IAD from the Caribbean near New Year.

1) Does Enrollment on Arrival save time vs waiting in regular customs line? She'll be the only one of traveling party without GE. From my understanding we just go to a separate line for admission by CBP agent and they will handle the enrollment as well.

2) I have made a tentative appointment a few days after our return, is it worth checking daily to see if anything opens up sooner? Or is that unlikely?

Yes, especially when that enrollment center is open. Check daily and frequently. You are very likely to find something suitable in 72 hours or sooner.

Good luck.

It depends on the airport and setup. I reported on a recent data point from a friend who waited an hour for EoA a week ago for instance.

Appointments open up "all the time". The more often you check, the more likely YOU will find the open timeslot that has just become available.

I went through the EoA process earlier this week at JFK as part of my GE renewal. Should I be seeing something different on the CPB website when I log in? It still says I'm at the 'Conditionally Approved' stage. Thanks

If you do not see approved one week from Enrollment on Arrival date, call JFK enrollment center. Most likely someone forgot to click approved button/key.

Thanks for the advice. Will do.

Searched the thread to find not so good experiences at EWR EoA.

Anyone done it recently (in the last months?) at Terminal B for a 6 am arrival? Will be landing from the world's longest flight and I pretty much don't have a chance to delay my application anymore...

How was it at JFK? Did it take a long time?

It was very straightforward. I was one of the first off the aircraft and the agent I spoke to asked if I would wait about 15 minutes. He processed my entry and I waited for him to process a few others in the line behind me. He then walked me to the far end where there was a GE booth and did the EoA which took another 5-10 minutes. That was it. Quite painless.

Did you have to wait in line or did you maintain front of line privileges?
