GULFPORT – Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport held a ceremony Thursday, Jan. 12 to launch the opening of a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Global Entry Enrollment Center at the airport.
Global Entry allows for expedited clearance of pre-approved, low-risk travelers. Members bypass the traditional CBP inspection lines and use an automated kiosk to complete admission upon return to the United States. In addition, enrollment in Global Entry provides travelers with TSA Pre-Check. The cost of enrollment in the program is $100 for five years.
“We are pleased to partner with Customs and Border Protection to offer a convenient new location for travelers to enroll in Global Entry,” said Clay Williams, Executive Director of the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport. “The program is becoming a popular convenience for those traveling internationally.”
The location at Gulfport-Biloxi is the first to open in the State of Mississippi.
The enrollment center is located on the second floor of the airport. Office hours are Wednesday through Friday, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. CBP officers will only interview Global Entry applicants with appointments. To begin the enrollment process, interested individuals should apply online at CBP’s Global Online Enrollment Center.
