United States Customs and Border Protection will be returning to conduct a mobile Global Entry enrollment event on St. Thomas on Dec. 9-10. The event will be held at the Cyril E. King Airport, St. Thomas/CBP Airport Security Office from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
USVI residents and visitors are invited to take advantage of this convenient opportunity to join Global Entry without having to travel for the enrollment interview. A Global Entry membership allows international travelers to get on their way quickly and easily by using automated kiosks when entering the United States instead of having to wait in line for a traditional inspection. Global Entry members also enjoy TSA Pre-Check benefits. This means they can also speed through TSA security on all participating airports, using a designated fast lane without having to remove shoes, laptops, liquids, belts and light jackets. Application fee is $100. Once approved, the membership lasts five years at which time participants must renew it. Applications should be submitted online at www.globalentry.gov.
The vetting process takes two to three weeks, so those who wish to participate in the event on St. Thomas are encourage to apply online as soon as possible.
Enrollment at the Cyril E. King Airport will be offered only to participants that have met the following requirements:
- Applied for Global Entry online and paid the application fee.
- Received a conditional approval prior to the start of the event.
- Have registered for the event by calling CBP at 787-457-5323/787-729-6982 ext. 4268 and provided their name, date of birth, PASS ID and phone number.
- Once registered participants will be contacted by CBP to schedule the interview time at the mobile enrollment event
