Can one still travel abroad and return to the US if they received a recent denial for a Global Entry application? Thanks in advance

Yes! The Global Entry program is a fast track for low risk individuals. I'm sorry you were denied and I won't pry into the reasons. Hopefully you can re-apply, but it's not the end of the world. You just can't use the fast lanes at TSA checkpoints and passport control. There are other options available. Have you tried Mobile Passport? Clear?

Thank you for the fast response! I will deal with the denial when as soon as I return. I just didn't want have any unexpected consequences at the borders and when I return to the States. Thanks again

Use the Mobile Passport App it’s fabulous. GE in SFO had lines of people while the new Passport App line was empty!

The global entry denial itself will have no impact on your ability to enter the US. Whatever triggered the denial could also cause you issues upon reentry. So if for example you were denied for having a criminal conviction, then that would affect both your Global Entry application and your admissibility.

Furthermore, if you are a US citizen you cannot be denied entry into the USA.

They is correct. There are some countries, like Canada, that can deny a US citizen entry if they have been convicted of a crime - especially a DWI or DUI. And if someone owes past due child support there are reports of them not being allowed out of the country.

All countries can deny U.S. citizens entry for a whole array of reasons - just as the United States does with citizens of other countries.

The Department of Health and Human Services can place a hold on the passport of a parent who owes more than $2500 in child support. It won't prevent them from traveling, but they can't get a new U.S. passport until they resolve the situation.

It actually can prevent someone from traveling. My wife’s agent friend had a client who went to board a cruise ship and we not allowed to because he owed over $50,000 in child support and was arrested at the port.

As someone whose husband's sperm donor never paid child support I am very glad this jerk was arrested. Funny how he had the money to pay for his own selfish luxuries but nothing for his kids.

As someone who has been declared persona non grata by a foreign government, what happened with me was a mark was made in my passport (a red ink dot) that apparently is an indication to check the immigration status of the person. This was before things were better computerized.

Ah yes. The whole "I'm so egregiously in arrears there's a felony warrant out on me" is a different spin on things...

DOJ's Citizen's Guide To U.S. Federal Child Law on Child Support Enforcement
It’s not even egregiously- they can be prosecuted for as little as $5,000 and it becomes a felony at $10,000, yet this guy got all the way to $50,000. Where are the courts when he is obviously living well enough to go on vacation yet not pay what he is responsible for?
