The Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport (SDF) will host a Global Entry enrollment event on Monday, September 13 through Friday, September 17. Appointments with U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials for applicants will be available daily from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. during this week.
Global Entry is offered through the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Trusted Traveler Programs. It allows pre-approved travelers to expedite their entry into the United States with automated kiosks that streamline the arrival process. Other benefits include no processing lines, no paperwork, access to expedited entry benefits in other countries, reduced wait times and TSA Pre-Check eligibility.
All international gateway airports that have nonstop service to Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport currently offer Global Entry kiosks for travelers.
The temporary Global Entry Enrollment Center at SDF will be located on the ticketing level of the terminal, and applicants should follow the signs.
Applications for Global Entry must first be completed online through the Trusted Traveler Programs portal at https://ttp.cbp.dhs.gov. Any questions about the online application or its process should be directed to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. All applicants are strongly encouraged to have an appointment as a limited amount of walk-up appointments may be accepted based on availability at the SDF temporary enrollment event.
Applicants must bring a valid U.S. passport and another form of ID, such as a driver’s license, to the in-person enrollment interview.
IMPORTANT – Travelers must be conditionally pre-approved prior to the in-person enrollment interview at SDF. Conditional approval can take several weeks. Because of this, interested applicants are encouraged to begin the online enrollment process immediately.
How to Apply for Global Entry
Note: The temporary location at the Louisville airport can only be chosen by an applicant who has been conditionally approved and is attempting to schedule the final step in the process. It will not appear in a search for a general enrollment center.
