Since the Global Entry program was expanded to Taiwan passport holders on November 1, 2017, demand for this program in Taiwan has skyrocketed. In response to this high demand, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), in conjunction with the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), will be conducting a Global Entry enrollment event in Taipei, January 18 – 24, 2018. Taiwan passports holders and U.S. citizens in Taiwan can take advantage of this event to interview with CBP in Taiwan and conveniently join Global Entry.

Global Entry interviews in Taiwan will be offered to applicants (1) who have been conditionally approved for Global Entry and (2) who have scheduled an interview for the Taiwan location. Those interested in this program should visit CBP’s Trusted Traveler Program (TTP) website to start the application process and schedule an interview: https://ttp.cbp.dhs.gov.

On November 1, 2017, Taiwan became the 12th partner worldwide and 3rd in East Asia whose passport holders are eligible to enroll in Global Entry. Currently available at 54 U.S. airports and 15 Preclearance locations around the world, Global Entry streamlines the international arrivals process at airports for trusted travelers. More than 4.7 million Global Entry members bypass traditional CBP inspection lines and use an automated kiosk to complete their admission to the United States. As an added benefit, Global Entry members are also eligible to participate in the TSA Pre✓™ expedited screening program.
Information for Taiwan passport holders on applying for the Global Entry program and scheduling an interview in Taipei January 18-24 can be found on AIT’s Global Entry webpage: https://www.ait.org.tw/global-entry.
