US Global Entry Program for Australian citizens

Hi Global Entry Friends,

I have duel passports UK/AU, i have been living in SYD for the last 6 years after moving from the UK. I was on a PR visa and then applied for citizenship here in AU. I'm sorry for my seemingly stupid question but can i apply for GE ?

Yes you can. My situation was the reverse (initially had only an Australian passport, applied for UK passport by descent). Just go through the process for applying with your UK passport, and at the GE interview, you can ask to have your Australian passport added at the same time.
 
Just a quick update. I got conditional approval within 24 hours of my GE application. Does anybody know if I have to make an appointment for the Enroll on Entry program vs making an appointment?

When I did mine a couple of years ago, there were no appointments for a convenient time where I'd be visiting the US. Enrollment on Arrival is the way to go. The Global Entry site should list which airports have Enrollment on Arrival and the hours they're open. I queued up for about 20 minutes at the LAX GE Enrollment on Arrival desk, and the process itself was pretty quick and painless.

Thankyou so much for the info!
 
Thanks for the handy info; I have 6 hours in LAX, and I may do this... where is the GE on arrivals desk?
I don’t recall exactly. Maybe it was after immigration and luggage pickup but before customs? Don’t quote me. Signage (or asking immigration staff!) should hopefully be sufficient to find it.

(Unhelpfully I do remember that at SFO Internstional terminal it’s one of the lanes on the left at immigration that handles EoA. But they have more restricted hours and I turned up there on a prior trip and found they were not open.)

It’s in the way out towards the exit on the L hand side after you have collected baggage.

Very well sign posted and easy to spot.

There are two baggage carousels in TBIT that are part way up the hallway towards customs. I think they are numbers 1 & 2. The desk is behind them (towards the exit).

When I arrived in QF95 last week there was no queue as I asked a question about whether I could use my AUS passport in the reader as it's linked to my GE. Also whether I could get the ESTA in my AUS passport.

I did mine at JFK years ago and the interview was at one of the sta dard arrival desks.

GE is amazing. I've never had to queue for a machine and you're through in 15 seconds.
