U.S. Customs and Border Protection has opened a Global Entry Enrollment Center at Bradley International Airport.

The Global Entry Program provides expedited clearance for pre-approved low-risk international travelers and members of these programs can expect expedited processing when entering the United States using automated kiosks at airports. As an added benefit, Global Entry members are also eligible to participate in the TSA Pre✓™, the Transportation Security Administration’s expedited security program.

The new Global Entry Enrollment Center in Hartford, Conn. is located in the International Arrivals Building at Bradley International Airport and open Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is open exclusively to Trusted Traveler Program applicants who have applied for membership through the Global On-line Enrollment System (GOES) and have had their applications conditionally approved. Conditionally approved applicants can now schedule or change their previously scheduled interview to the Bradley Enrollment Center through the GOES website. Travelers interested in enrolling in one of CBP’s Trusted Traveler Programs can learn more about the programs and apply online using the CBP’s Global On-line Enrollment System (GOES).

Directions to the facility:

The Global Entry Enrollment Center is located at Bradley’s International Arrivals Facility. As you approach Bradley Airport, follow directional signage for the International Arrivals Facility. Continue past the parking garage entrance and take the right-hand lanes headed towards the terminal (the overhead sign will say “Arrivals and Departures”). Continue straight at the traffic light as if you were accessing the arrivals area of the airport. Continue past the terminal and the Sheraton Hotel and as the ramp curves to the right, stay in the right-hand lane. At the traffic light the International Arrivals Building will be immediately on your right hand side, park there and proceed inside.
