Global Entry interviews will be available for a limited time at the Myrtle Beach International Airport, beginning Monday, September 11, 2023 through Friday, September 15, 2023. Interviews will take place in the airport's FIS conference rooms, located in the former terminal building to the right of the main terminal. Customers can utilize short-term or long-term parking for the event; Economy Lot C should only be utilized if the short-term and long-term lots are full.
Global Entry is a CBP Trusted Traveler Program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Though intended for frequent international travelers, there is no minimum number of trips necessary to qualify for the program. Participants may enter the United States by using automated Global Entry kiosks located at select airports. Global Entry is currently available at 58 U.S. airports, as well as 17 Preclearance international airports, and membership is valid for five years. For complete details on the program, please visit https://www.cbp.gov/travel/trusted-traveler-programs/global-entry.
The program is designed to enable efficient travel, and to provide added security for international travelers. While Global Entry's goal is to speed up travel, members are still subject to the same laws and regulations as other travelers, and may be selected for further examination at any time when entering the United States. Global Entry members are also eligible to participate in the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Precheck program which expedites screening through TSA checkpoints at participating airports.
Those interested in participating in the upcoming interview process must have completed their application and received conditional approval prior to their interview appointment. Those who have not yet completed an application may do so but should note that processing times vary and the airport cannot guarantee conditional approval in time for the event. To submit an application, visit the Global Entry website and click “Apply Now,” which links to the Trusted Travelers Program (TTP) site (https://ttp.cbp.dhs.gov/). Applicants must first create an account on the TTP site, then log in to submit a Global Entry application. A $100 non-refundable application fee is paid online at the time of application. Once pre-approved, applicants will receive a message indicating that they are conditionally approved for Global Entry and are invited to schedule an interview. Interviews for the event can be scheduled online through the TTP website beginning Monday, September 4, 2023 at 0900.
