Applying for Global Entry with AP, or wait for GC?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My charge card will refund my Global Entry fee, so I was thinking why not?

I had a couple of questions though, has anyone gotten Global Entry while having AP and waiting for their GC?

Is Global Entry difficult to get?

According to the CBP website on Global entry:

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

Until you actually receive your GC, you are not a LPR and are not eligible for Global Entry. Once you receive your GC, you can then apply.

That's weird that the UK isn't on the list... Oh well, guess I have to wait for this elusive Green Card!

The UK is currently trialling GE. British Airways was able to allow some of their higher tier members to join. I expect it'll be rolled out to all UK passport holders soon.

It's a doddle to get though (it'll seem weirdly relaxed and easy to get compared to all the visa stuff you've done). I got mine as soon as I could, and it's made coming back into the US from abroad SO MUCH NICER. I now do flight landing -> taxi at SFO in like 10 minutes or less and I don't have to talk to anyone.
