Global Entry Denial and Revocation Appeal Attorney

United States Customs & Border Protection, known as CBP, administers the Global Entry program. Global Entry is one of CBP's Trusted Traveler Programs. United States Code of Federal Regulations 8 C.F.R. Ā§ 235.12 establishes the criteria for Global Entry program membership. Global Entry is available to qualifying United States citizens, Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) and certain foreign nationals. Citizens of Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Mexico, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Panama, South Korea and the United Kingdom (Great Britain) can also apply for Global Entry program membership. 

Most applications for Global Entry program membership are quickly approved. Reciprocal programs are also available to U.S. Global Entry cardholders, such as the APEC Business Travel Card, fully known as the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Travel Card. However, some applicants may require the assistance of a Global Entry Appeal Lawyer to secure their Global Entry program membership. The application and enrollment process for Global Entry is fairly simple. Applicants establish an account with CBP on the GOES system, which stands for Global Online Enrollment System. CBP then will either conditionally approve or deny the application. If the application is conditionally approved, then the applicant will schedule an interview with a Customs & Border Protection Officer at a Global Entry Enrollment Center. The interviewing Officer will then either approve or deny the Global Entry program membership. A Global Entry Denial Appeals Lawyer can assist applicants who have been denied Global Entry program membership. 


There are numerous reasons that a Global Entry program membership application will be denied. The most common reasons for denial are criminal convictions and Administrative Customs Violations. Any criminal conviction will result in a preliminary denial of Global Entry program membership. These convictions include everything from Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol and Domestic Violence, to Fraud and Narcotics Sales. Most Administrative Customs Violations, even minor violations such as Failure to Declare Food and Beverages and Interfering With Screening, will also result in a preliminary denial of Global Entry access. There are several options for appealing a denial of Global Entry.

CBP will generally issue a written reason for denial of Global Entry program membership. Denied applicants can author a written Appeal to the CBP's Office of the Ombudsman. In the Appeal, the applicant must discuss the reasons for the denial, show sufficient rehabilitation, demonstrate a need for Global Entry and provide clear and convincing evidence that they are not a security risk to the security of the United States. The Ombudsman's Office will consider the Appeal and decide whether to issue provisional approval for Global Entry program membership, or uphold the denial. If provisional approval is granted, the applicant will schedule an interview with a Customs and Border Protection Officer at a Global Entry Enrollment Center for final approval and enrollment.

If CBP does not state a reason for denial of Global Entry program membership, an applicant may file a Traveler Redress Inquiry with the Traveler Redress Inquiry Program, also known as TRIP. When applying for redress through DHS Trip, the applicant will be issued a Redress Control Number. TRIP requests are similar to Appeals in that legal arguments must be properly presented and documented in order to receive an adequate response. TRIP requests will generally result in a written reason for denial. TRIP can also overturn a denial of Global Entry program membership and issue a provisional approval, pending an interview with a supervisor at a Global Entry Enrollment Center. However, the process usually involves TRIP stating the reason for Global Entry denial and the Ombudsman's Office overturning the denial pursuant to a written Appeal.

Another option involves writing a Complaint directly to the Department of Homeland Security/Customs & Border Protection. The Complaint essentially functions as an Appeal of the denial of Global Entry. Sufficient legal reasons and arguments must be covered in order to properly file a Complaint directly with DHS and CBP regarding a Global Entry program membership denial. 

Global Entry denials are common, which is why a Global Entry Appeals Attorney may be necessary to help you overturn your denial of Global Entry membership. If you are a businessman or traveller denied Global Entry program membership, contact a Global Entry Appeals Lawyer today. 


Individuals who are already Global Entry program members can face the revocation of Global Entry program membership. A Global Entry revocation can result due to a criminal conviction or Administrative Customs Violation. Global Entry cards are usually revoked upon renewal, or subsequent to CBP learning of a violation. It is not uncommon for passengers and travelers to have their Global Entry cards seized by CBP Officers upon entry into the United States. Once seized, Global Entry cardholders generally have thirty or sixty days to Appeal the decision. If the revocation is overturned by the Ombudsman's Office, a meeting with a Customs and Border Protection Officer is required at a Global Entry Enrollment Center for full reinstatement of Global Entry privileges. Global Entry privileges are generally suspended pending the final outcome of the Global Entry Revocation Appeal.

Similar to a denial of Global Entry program membership, individuals facing revocation of their Global Entry can file an Appeal of the revocation with the Ombudsman's Office. However, Global Entry revocation appeals cannot generally be filed with the Traveler Redress Inquiry Program, or TRIP, or directly with Customs & Border Protection. It is important to show that the revocation will be in error and that the Global Entry program member does not present a security risk to the security of the United States. A Global Entry Appeal Attorney will be able to assist individuals with matters involving Global Entry Revocation.
