What to expect at a Global Entry application interview?

  • I applied for the Global Entry program a couple of days ago, and I noticed a few mentions throughout the application process to an interview that I would need to schedule as part of the process.

    What should I expect at the interview? Who will be conducting the interview and what sort of questions will be asked?

    I see that I will need to bring my proof of citizenship (e.g., passport) with me; are there any other documents that I should bring (even if not required)?

    Checked with a few colleagues that have been through the interview...

    The interview is done by CBP (Customs and Border Patrol). The questions seem to vary, but mainly cover your travel patterns, countries you've been to, employment/employer, etc. Total time for the interview was around 15-20min, including watching a short video, and a sample of how to use the GE kiosk.

    None took any other documentation, and none were asked for any. It sounds like a business card may not hurt if you have one, but that's about it.

    Thanks for the info. My interview went just about exactly the way you described above (:
