A Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Global Entry Enrollment Center opens on January 14, at the Mobile Regional Airport. It will become only the second Global Entry Enrollment Center to open in Alabama.
“CBP is looking forward to bringing a Global Entry Enrollment Center to Mobile,” said Anthony Acrey, CBP Mobile Area Port Director. “The Global Entry Enrollment program provides travelers the opportunity for expedited clearance when traveling internationally. This center, along with our center in Huntsville, will give travelers in Alabama more options when applying for that benefit.”
Members bypass the traditional CBP inspection lines and use an automated kiosk to complete admission upon return to the United States. As an added benefit, Global Entry members are eligible to participate in TSA PreCheck, the Transportation Security Administration’s expedited security program.
“We are always looking for improvements that enhance the customer experience for residents of our community,” said Chris Curry, Mobile Airport Authority President. “The new center is a welcomed addition and is certainly needed with the growing number of international businesses and customers who frequent our region.”
During its opening week, The Global Entry Enrollment Center at Mobile will be open Tuesday, January 14 – Friday, January 17, from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Following that week, the center will be open on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Applicants must have applied online for Global Entry and have had their applications conditionally approved. Conditionally approved applicants may schedule or change their currently scheduled interview for the Mobile Enrollment Center using the Global Entry website. CPB will actively manage hours of operations based on the number of applicants and operational needs throughout the calendar year.
