Typically twice per year, we arrange to host a special on-campus enrollment event for Harvard faculty and staff to apply for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Global Entry program. Global Entry enables expedited passage through customs at U.S. airports. Our on-campus enrollment event saves you the time and hassle of traveling to a CBP enrollment center for your interview.
