Global Entry with dual citizenship?

Global Entry with dual citizenship?

  1. Anonymous

    Lucky (or anyone else who had done this for that matter),
    Any ideas on the process of applying for Global Entry for someone with dual citizenship? Is that something that has come up either in the interview or in the application? How does the process go for those if that is something that comes up?

    I dont think there are any restrictions to Global Entry for dual citizens. Just make sure you apply with your US Passport and enter the US each time with your US passport. According to the [URL=’http://www.cbp.gov/travel/trusted-traveler-programs/global-entry/eligibility’]USCBP[/URL], you are also eligible for Global Entry if you’re a citizen of the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Panama, South Korea and Mexico. If you’re Canadian, sign up for NEXUS, which includes Global Entry. It’s also cheaper but not eligible for credits from various credit cards.

    I have a dual citizenship (and so does my wife and our children). We applied for Global Entry, and got it without any problem. I know that the dual citizenship came up during the (very brief and cordial) interview, but it was just a quick question from the Immigration Officer. There is absolutely no problem with that (dual citizenship), you can legally keep your original citizenship if you are a naturalized citizen (so there is no reason to hide it). One last thing: it is absolutely necessary to be truthful when replying to the questions of the Immigration Officers regarding whether you have another passport or not. First of all it is the the “law” (to be truthful), secondly they know it anyway as I had the opportunity to find out in Dublin when the Officer asked my wife about the EU passport she used when entering the EU……

    I have dual citizenship (Irish and US) and had no problems applying for Global Entry

    I have dual citizenship (Italian and USA) and it was not a problem for Global Entry. I have a Danish citizen friend who is a resident of the USA and she has Global Entry.

    Another data point from someone with US and Indian citizenship–not a problem!

    Did you include your “other” citizenship on the application?

    Jacob, did you include the “other” citizenship on your application? Or did it just come up in the interview?

    I have checked today my application (I kept screenshots of every step of the application process). Where it asks about your citizenship, I just entered US (there was no question about any other citizenship you might have). However, I took my EU passport with me when I went for an interview, and I think the officer asked me about any other citizenship I might have, but did not want to see the foreign passport – just wanted to know. As I mentioned before, I found the JFK Global Entry Center extremely easy to get an appointment – my own city (Nashville), hardly had any, only 3-4 months away. The officers were very nice, we got there 2 hours before hour appointment time, and they saw us as soon as they could (within 20 min of arriving).

    I don’t see how you can have both US and Indian passports. India DOES NOT allow dual citizenship. If you have OCI or PIO that does not count as dual citizenship!
