The U.S. will conduct interviews of Global Entry candidates at several locations in Germany beginning Oct. 26. The Global Entry program is a trusted traveler program that allows pre-approved, low-risk foreign nationals to use automated clearance kiosks at select airports for faster entry into the U.S.

Interviews dates and locations will be available as follows:

  • Frankfurt Airport: October 26-29
  • U.S. Embassy Berlin: November 2-3
  • Düsseldorf Airport: November 5-6
  • Munich Airport: November 9-11

German citizens applying for membership in the Global Entry program must first undergo clearance by the German Federal Police and may then fill out an online application. Applicants who are conditionally approved will receive an email to schedule an interview with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Interviewees will be screened and have their biometrics (photo and fingerprints) taken. Additional information for German applicants is available on the CBP’s website.

Global Entry is available to U.S. citizens, U.S. lawful permanent residents, and citizens of Germany, Mexico, the Netherlands, Panama and South Korea. Canadian citizens may enjoy Global Entry benefits through membership in the NEXUS program.
