Global Entry






The Chippewa Valley Regional Airport (EAU) has arranged with US Customs & Border Patrol for on-site Global Entry interviews on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 23-24.  Global Entry is designed for international travelers, and it allows travelers to quickly pass through US Customs when they return to the US from an international flight.  The benefit to travelers of Global Entry is: instead of standing in a long line waiting to speak with Customs, Global Entry travelers simply swipe their passport at the Global Entry kiosk and they are processed and on their way. Global Entry enrollment also includes TSA pre-check! 

NOTE: A minimum of 125 travelers must complete an online Global Entry application by June 1, 2019, receive a “Conditionally Approved” electronic notification AND sign up for an interview at EAU by July 1, 2019 for this event to remain on the US Customs’ schedule. Travelers should apply IMMEDIATELY and select an interview at EAU as soon as they are conditionally approved.  Interview slots are first-come, first-served and we won’t be able to add more spots once they are filled.
