U.S. Customs and Border Protection to host Global Entry Enrollment Event at GPT

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will host a Global Entry Enrollment Event July 28-29 at the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport, located at 14035-L Airport Road in Gulfport, Miss. The mobile site will be located next to the rental car counters on the first floor of the airport terminal.

Applicants must first make an appointment using CBP’s Global Online Enrollment System (GOES) application before reporting to the enrollment center to complete the application process.

Frequent travelers are encouraged to participate in the Global Entry trusted traveler program, which allows pre-screened, low-risk travelers to proceed with little or no delay into the United States.

Currently, the New Orleans Global Entry Enrollment Center is the nearest location for residents in Mississippi and Alabama.

“There is enormous demand for CBP’s Global Entry trusted traveler program, and so we want to make it as convenient as possible for qualifying residents in these states to start enjoying expedited processing benefits,” said Mark Walker, CBP Port Director for the Port of Gulfport.

More than 3.3 million travelers experience expedited international arrivals processing at the 521 Global Entry self-help kiosks located at 44 U.S. airports and 13 pre-clearance locations including Canada, Ireland, Abu Dhabi, Aruba and the Bahamas.

Global Entry members are also eligible to expedite their domestic travel by using TSA’s Pre-Check trusted traveler security screening lines.
