Skip the Lines with Global Entry

Global Entry allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. It also allows U.S. travelers to be eligible to participate in the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) PreCheck program, which expedites screening through TSA checkpoints at participating airports. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers will be located in room 224 at the Henry B. González Convention Center during IPW, Monday, May 22 through Wednesday, May 24 to conduct in-person enrollment interviews.

Visit the Trusted Traveler Programs website to apply today. After your Global Entry application is “conditionally approved,” log in to your TTP account and select “Schedule Interview.” Enter the “access code” 869KH2H51 and select enrollment location IPW 2023.

To participate in the interview process at IPW, submit your online application as soon as possible. Once your application has been submitted, please provide your last name and application number to [email protected].
