You must first apply for the Global Entry program through the DHS Trusted Traveler Programs website. You will be asked to pay a $100 fee for a 5 year membership. You will also have to fill out questions regarding your background.
Note: You are able to waive the $100 fee if you pay using one of these travel credit cards .Start Your Global Entry Application
After your application has been submitted, you will have to wait for conditional approval. Conditional approval means that you have been pre approved for the Global Entry program, but you need to schedule an interview to finalize your application.
The conditional approval process can take anywhere from 24 hours to multiple months, depending on the volume of applications, your background, etc.
Congratulations! You've been conditionally approved for Global Entry. The next step is to schedule your interview at Albuquerque Enrollment Center.
You might notice that Albuquerque Enrollment Center is showing "No appointments available for this location", or the next appointment available is months out.
