My wife and I want to get the Global Entry status for a

Customer Question

My wife and I want to get the Global Entry status for a flight to Mexico on June 22 . Is this feasible? W e live near Philadelphia . Is it quicker to go the TSA office in the Jefferson Bldg and register in person rather than on line ? And if so must we still set up a GOES account on line first or can that be setup at the in person meeting ? Also what is their phone number? Also where on the DHS website is the actual application form ? Thank you,

Hello! Thank you for using Just Answer. I am James. I will be assisting you. Please allow me some time to review your question.

ANSWER: Yes, it is feasible, although there is no guarantee that it will happen by June 22. The only thing you can do is try.

I contacted the Philadelphia GOES enrollment center, and they confirmed that they DO NOT accept walk-in appointments. You must create your account, complete the application, and schedule an appointment.

Here you can find the instructions for GOES enrollment, including the online application: https://www.cbp.gov/travel/trusted-traveler-programs/global-entry/how-apply. You will be required to create an account online.

Note that the TSA PreCheck and GOES are different programs administered by different agencies. So if you go to a TSA PreCheck enrollment center, they will not be able to enroll you in GOES.

Since you are near Philadelphia, the GOES enrollment center is located at:

Philadelphia International Airport:

Terminal A West

3rd Floor
Philadelphia, PA 19153

Hours: 10:00AM - 6:00PM

Contact: (215) 863 - 4203 or (215) 863 - 4287
