Happy 4th of July! We hope you have a safe and festive holiday as we celebrate our nation's independence. #IndependenceDay. 🇺🇸
As excitement builds for the Akron-Canton Airport’s Mobile GOES (Global Entry) program in May, we want to highlight some important steps to reaching Global Entry membership.
First step, secure a passport!
Have you put off applying for your US Passport? Well, if you want to apply for GOES, you must have a passport in order to fill out the application. Fear not – it’s really not a hassle. Just keep in mind, it takes anywhere from 4 - 6 weeks for a passport to arrive. (There are expedited options, see the bottom of this post.)
Where to apply?
New applicants must complete the process at an acceptance facility. These will depend on your location. You can find your closest locations here.
Locations within 25 miles of CAK, with photo capabilities on-site include:
The acceptance process takes about 15 minutes, including your photo taken.
*I completed mine at the Stark County District Library – Plain Community Branch and they photocopied and mailed the documents for me at no additional cost.
What do I need to bring to my appointment if I’m getting a new passport?
Passport book or Passport card?
A passport card is valid only for travel by land and by sea to the following locations: Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, and the Caribbean
ADULT APPLICANTS (Age 16 Years and Older)
MINOR APPLICANTS (UNDER 16)
Application Fee and any Additional Services Fees:
All new applicants must also pay a $25 acceptance/execution fee. $25 Execution Fee Paid Separately:
*Please verify acceptable payment methods with the acceptance facility ahead of time.
Travelers must be pre-approved for the Global Entry program. That means, you must have a passport before you start the application for pre-approval. For more expedited options, find information from the U.S. Department of State here.
