CBP Global Entry Interviews During ASTA Global Convention

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers will conduct in-person enrollment interviews for CBP’s Global Entry program at the Puerto Rico Convention Center on Tuesday, May 2 through Thursday, May 4 in conjunction with the ASTA Global Convention in Puerto Rico.

Global Entry allows expedited clearance for preapproved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Participants may enter the U.S. using automated kiosks located at 62 U.S. airports, and 15 preclearance sites. Global Entry approval also allows U.S. travelers to be eligible to participate in the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Pre® program, which expedites screening through TSA checkpoints at participating airports.

How to Apply

To participate in the interview process, you must follow these steps:
  • Visit the Trusted Traveler Programs website https://ttp.cbp.dhs.gov/ and review the available programs.
  • Step 1: Create a Trusted Traveler Program (TTP) account.
  • Here, you must first create an account and then log in to apply. When applying, be sure to only select the Global Entry option. A $100 USD nonrefundable application fee must be paid online at the time you apply.
  • Once your application has been reviewed, you will receive a message in your account notifying you of the results.

Once you are “conditionally approved” for Global Entry and are invited to schedule an interview:

  • Log into your TTP account and select “Schedule Interview”
  • From the Schedule Appointment page, scroll to the bottom of the page and select “Do you have an access code?”.
  • Enter the "Access Code" YX963U158 to schedule an interview appointment for the private event.
  • Enrollment location ASTA 2023 will display, and you can select the date and time for your interview.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CBP is experiencing a significant backlog of applications. To complete your interview, it is recommended you submit your application as soon as possible.
