This event is full

All interview spots for the Davis campus event are now full. There are a couple of options that we can suggest: 

1. Continue checking for availability at Davis, as additional times may be added and/or individuals may cancel their appointments. 

2. Book an appointment at SFO or another normal location. It is important to book an appointment, or you may eventually lose your initial application fee. 

Global Entry (Airport Security Pre-screening) Interview Event

For the convenience of campus travelers, the Travel Team is hosting a Global Entry application interview event in January, 2018. This service provides enrolled travelers with the TSA PreCheck benefits through airport security, as well as expedited processing through customs when arriving at U.S. airports from foreign countries. Visit the comparison chart on the Department of Homeland Security website to review how the programs compare.

Please note that there are a limited number of appointments available at the campus event. The sooner your application is completed on the Trusted Traveler Program (TTP) website, the more likely you will be able to schedule your interview appointment during the on-campus event. If you are unable to reserve an interview appointment during the on-campus event, you can make an appointment at a Global Entry site listed on their website.

Information about the event, including instructions on how to sign-up, will be posted to this page.
