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).

For anyone who has interviewed once they landed at airport...

Did the interview process take very long or was there a long line?
I am still waiting to be conditionally approved but based on the banner on top of the ttp site when checking my status, I see that they are trying to get applicants who have been conditionally approved to wait be interviewed at the airport upon returning from a trip. I wondered if it's even worth it or if waiting in the regular customs line would take around the same time.

I applied early June 2019... and still nothing. My husband applied later the same evening and was approved a couple of days later. Then had a scheduled appointment at the airport about a month later and received his card in the mail about a week following.

Does anyone know what's going on at LAX? Am I likely to be able to perform Enrollment on Arrival during a 2h45m change from an international flight onto a domestic one? Or is that not enough time to even bother trying?

Just to give an update on my experience doing EOA at MIA. Arrived at terminal D international arrivals at approx. 10 am. Went to the APC machine and completed the immigration process with my printed receipt. I proceeded immediately to the Global Entry line where I informed the officer I was doing EOA. He made me wait on the side before an officer came to take me to secondary screening. I waited approx 10 minutes before seeing an officer where I was asked simple questions and prints were taken. Whole process took about 20 minutes.

Conditionally approved yesterday after applying May 20. Of course we’re in Europe now and didn’t bring my wife’s conditional approval email so I don’t know if we need to bring anything for EOA.

In theory youíre supposed to bring the confirmation details but in practice it should not be necessary as it will be looked up on the database.

Are you not able to access the email remotely?

As I said above, I think you'll get away without it. If you wanted to access it, you should be able to look it up on the trusted traveler program website.

And to followup, all we needed was our passport. It was about the only thing that went easy yesterday.

Any word if this program is going to be expanded to additional airports? Or is the list of locations for EoA it for the foreseeable future?

Enrollment on arrival at EWR Terminal B is handled at station/line 26. I had travel party members do the Enrollment on Arrival ďinterviewsĒ for new and renewal applications this month. It was a good experience ó not much of anything in the way of being questioned ó but sort of slow due to the number of people waiting for the single CBP employee doing EOAs there and the fingerprint scanner having issues with capturing the fingerprints.

I get an email from time to time showing the added EOA locations. So far they all seem to be airports with international flights so I would expect all U.S. international airports to eventually be able to do it. Really doesn't make much sense to do it at non-international airports (like mine) considering the staffing problems CBP says they have.

That makes sense. Enrollment on Arrival interviews are conducted by CBP officers during the admissibility inspections at passport controls. Passengers arriving on domestic flights do not pass through passport controls.

I guess I haven't noticed any new locations on the list... or at least any new locations that are actually of use to me, since BOS still isn't and has no interviews.
