Global Entry Enrollment on Arrival

HOU is one of few airports chosen by US Customs and Border Protection to allow Enrollment on Arrival. This program effectively reduces enrollment wait times for Global Entry passengers by hurrying the interview process.

Enrollment on arrival is conducted by CBP to allow conditionally approved Global Entry applicants to complete their interviews as they arrive in the United States. This program also eradicates the necessity for a Global Entry applicant to register an interview to complete the application process.
