Global Entry applicants can complete enrollment interviews starting Sept. 8, CBP says

Global Entry applicants can complete their enrollment interviews starting Tuesday, resuming a process that’s been on pause since March because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Customs and Border Protection said Friday it will reopen most Trusted Traveler enrollment centers in the United States after the Labor Day weekend. They had been closed since March 19 as air travel slowed to a trickle.

What’s different? CBP personnel will be required to wear face coverings, as will Global Entry applicants.

Other changes that applicants may encounter at reopened enrollment centers: staggered or reduced appointments, the elimination of sign-in sheets, limited seating, more frequent disinfection, plexiglass barriers or face shields and measures to encourage social distancing.

Because the Canadian and Mexican borders remain closed to nonessential travel, enrollment for the NEXUS and FAST programs remain suspended. Both programs ordinarily would grant applicants expedited crossing at the northern and southern borders.
