If you’ve been looking into getting TSA PreCheck or Global Entry and decided to go with the latter, you probably already know that the legwork is a little more involved. Global Entry enrollment can be done at a limited list of cities with international airports and the Homeland Security site states that getting an appointment at one of these centers can take up to 18 months. To expedite the process, your best bet is to do enrollment on arrival. Melissa, a finance influencer known as @Millennialindebt, posted a TikTok about how she was able to get approved for Global Entry in only 10 days.

By applying and getting approved for conditional approval shortly before an international flight, she was able to utilize the travel she was already doing to get to her interview appointment.

To be eligible for this program, you must have conditional approval from Global Entry and be returning from an international flight. Otherwise, you’ll have to make an appointment like everyone else. You’ll need to bring your passport and proof of residency to the interview. To receive conditional approval, you can complete the Global Entry application online on the Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) portal. Keep in mind the background check can take up to 90 days, meaning your conditional approval might not process in time for your trip.
