Make international travel quick and easy with the Global Entry Program! Global Entry is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States.

For your convenience, the Chicago Association of REALTORS® Global Council has invited U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents to our office to conduct in-person interviews.
