Global Entry: Interview on Arrival

Global Entry: Interview on Arrival

If you need to schedule a Global Entry interview you can now have the interview on arrival from an international flight, at select airports:

  • Austin (AUS)
  • Dallas Forth (DFW)
  • Denver (DEN)
  • Detroit (DTW)
  • Houston Hobby (HOU)
  • Houston (IAH)
  • Minneapolis (MSP)
  • Philadelphia (PHL)
  • Phoenix (PHX)
  • Salt Lake City (SLC)
  • San Diego (SAN)
  • San Francisco (SFO)
  • San Jose (SJC)
  • Seattle (SEA)
  • Toronto (YYZ)
  • Vancouver (YVR)
Per the email I received, there's no need for any appointment. You just need to follow the signage to Customs and Border Protection after arriving in the international terminal.
Unfortunately, New York is conspicuously absent from this list. There are very few appointments available in Manhattan at Bowling Green, so for New Yorkers, your best bet is to make an appointment at JFK to coincide with your next flight departing from JFK.

Fortunately, I already managed to schedule my Global Entry interview prior to my departure yesterday. Although my flight was from Terminal 1, the Global Entry facility is at Terminal 4, at the ground floor Arrivals area. It'

Fortunately, I already managed to schedule my Global Entry interview prior to my departure yesterday. Although my flight was from Terminal 1, the Global Entry facility is at Terminal 4, at the ground floor Arrivals area. It's a fairly cramped space, so I don't recommend attempting to bring a luggage cart or tons of baggage with you, as one of the applicants in front of me did; ultimately he left his luggage cart outside as there simply wasn't room.
After signing in, I waited in the small waiting room for a few minutes before being called. Even though I was half an hour early, I was able to be seen 15 minutes before my appointment time, and was finished before my appointment time.
Credit Cards That Provide a $100 Global Entry Credit
 
I used my Chase Sapphire Reserve for the $100 Global Entry reimbursement credit. Other credit cards that also provide a $100 Global Entry fee credit are the AMEX Platinum, AMEX Business Platinum, Citi Prestige, Ritz-Carlton Visa, United MileagePlus Club card, and Citi AAdvantage Executive World Elite card.
If you're applying for or renewing Global Entry, do you plan to take advantage of a Global Entry interview on arrival at one of the above airports?
