Starting today, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers from John F. Kennedy and Newark's Liberty International Airport will host a Global Entry Enrollment event at our ticketing office located at Penn Station. This Global Entry Mobile Enrollment event will run from January 2 until January 26 (it will be closed for the Martin Luther King holiday), Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

This mobile enrollment site allows potential enrollees to the Global Entry program to conduct their enrollment process in mid-town Manhattan in addition to the Custom House on lower Broadway, John F. Kennedy International or Newark Liberty International Airports.

"CBP is excited to be at Penn Station in the heart of New York City, to provide commuters with a convenient temporary location to enroll in the Global Entry program," said Leon Hayward, Acting Director, Field Operations New York.

"We are always pursuing new ways to improve the airport experience for our customers and offer them convenient opportunities to enroll for innovative programs such as Global Entry and TSA Precheck," said Greg Hart, United's executive vice president and chief operations officer. "We thank CBP for supporting this enrollment event at Penn Station and working with us to further improve the travel experience for our customers."

Global Entry is a CBP 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 kiosks located at select airports. TSA Pre✓® eligibility is also granted to Global Entry members when they enter their nine digit PASS ID as the Known Traveler Number in reservations. See united.com/tsaprecheck for more information.
