Many have asked, and Fort Wayne International Airport will deliver. FWA will once again serve as host for a temporary Mobile Global Entry Enrollment site from Monday, Feb. 27 through Friday, March 3, 2023.
After a successful event in 2022, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will again use FWA as a temporary Mobile Global Entry site for travelers that wish to enroll in the Global Entry program. All who travel internationally (including the business community and frequent travelers) are invited to enroll in this program. It provides expedited clearance at major airports for approved travelers upon arrival back in the United States. Global Entry members can save time in the customs process with expedited clearance, using automated Global Entry kiosks. Other benefits of Global Entry include avoiding processing lines and paperwork, access to expedited entry benefits in other countries, reduced wait times and all TSA Pre√® benefits.
In order to reserve an appointment time during FWA’s Mobile Global Entry enrollment event, those interested must apply for Global Entry via the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) website and create a Trusted Traveler Program (TTP) account. You are likely to secure a Global Entry appointment at FWA if you have already submitted your application and are ready to schedule your in-person interview, but you may apply for Global Entry at any time. Below are the application steps and information to schedule an appointment at FWA’s temporary enrollment center.
To Apply for Global Entry:
Create a Trusted Traveler Program (TTP) account by visiting ttp.cbp.dhs.gov. Each applicant, regardless of age, must have their own TTP account.
Log into the TTP account and complete the application. A $100 non-refundable fee is required with each completed application.
After accepting a completed application and fee, the application will be reviewed. If it is conditionally approved, the GOES account will instruct the applicant to schedule an interview at a Global Entry Enrollment Center. Applicants will then be able to select FWA by the dates of the Mobile Enrollment event. Each applicant must schedule a separate interview time slot.
Applicants need to bring a valid passport and one other form of identification, such as a driver’s license or ID card, to the interview. Lawful permanent residents must present a machine-readable permanent resident card.
Appointments will run from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. each day – walk-in appointments will not be accepted. The FWA Mobile Global Entry Enrollment event will be held in the airport terminal building, land-side in the Airport Authority offices located on the second floor of the building. Parking will be validated by the airport. Space is limited to 60 applicants per day, with appointment times available to individual applicants by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
