Global Entry Reapplication / Renewal (required every 5 years)

You can proactively initiate the renewal process before you get your expiration notification from DHS, which seem to be going out to your email address of record a few months prior to expiry.

You may reapply for Global Entry renewal as early as one year prior to your membership expiration date. https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/det...-membership%3F If you are currently approved, your new GE validity will be five years from your next birthday.

If you allow your Global Entry status to expire, even by one day, you will need to submit a new application.

Your Global Entry expiration date will show when you register and sign in to the new Trusted Traveler Program website https://ttp.cbp.dhs.gov/ If you can renew, you will see a white on blue "RENEW" radio button.

Reapplication requires filling out an application form essentially de novo, including listing citizenship or residency documents, whether your driver's license is EDL conforming, aliases or "AKAs", new jobs or address changes since application, all countries visited the last five years (the form sorts them alphabetically, and does not request date or year of visit) and payment of $100 (for five years of GE renewal).

Don't forget some credit cards will give you credit for PreCheck application or renewal, $85, or for Global Entry etc. renewal, $100, every five years (Barclay Aviator Silver, American Express Platinum, etc.) Iterestingly, they may not cover NEXUS, which is $50 - and if you have NEXUS, your GE will be subsumed by NEXUS.

After one to a few weeks, you will likely receive an e-mail informing you action has been taken on your application; you will have to log in to your account to determine what that action has been. The average time for processing is 7-10 days (excluding government shutdowns) but it is not uncommon to wait 1-2 months.

If you submit a renewal application before expiration of your current membership, then you can continue to use your benefits until the renewal is finalized (up to 6 months after your expiration date). [Please note that according to the information in post number 1552, the grace period has been extended to twelve months.]

1) You may be approved, with no further action on your part necessary; your GE will be extended five years from your next birthdate. For an example of an uncomplicated renewal without requiring an interview, see this post by mre5765.

2) You may receive conditional approval. To receive full approval you must complete the enrollment interview within 365 days of receiving the conditional approval. You still have a hoop or two to jump through.

3) You may have not been approved. See instructions on line to proceed; this information refers to reapplication, not how to appeal or reverse the denial.

If your renewal application takes inordinately long to process or you experience other difficulties, see Frequently Asked Questions or contact or email your questions or request for support through the CBP support portal.

Re: Your application for the Global Entry Program Membership #"123456789"

Dear "JACK FROST":

We are pleased to inform you that your U. S. Customs and Border Protection, Global Entry membership application has been processed and you are now invited to visit an enrollment center to complete the enrollment process.

In order to finalize your Global Entry enrollment, you must schedule your Global Entry Interview within 30 days of the date of this letter. You do not have to complete the interview within 30 days. [Update: You need to complete an interview within 365 days of conditional approval, or your application will be cancelled. You can reschedule as often as needed]. To do this, please log in through GOES (Global Online Enrollment System) [Update: TTP Account] using the user name and password you established when you completed your initial application. Once you have logged in, please schedule your interview using the blue "Schedule Interview" button located on the right side of the screen. If you have already visited the enrollment center for this application, please disregard this letter.

You must bring the following original documents with you to the enrollment center:
  • A valid passport. If you travel using more than one passport, please bring them to the interview so that the information can be added to your file. This provides you with the ability to use either passport at the Global Entry kiosk;
  • A permanent resident card (if applicable);
  • Documents providing evidence of residency. Examples are: driver's license (if the address is current), mortgage statement, rental payment statement, utility bill, etc.
When you visit the Enrollment Center, we will review your application and any additional information you provide at that time. We will verify your identity, review your documentation, and take your fingerprints and photograph. Finally, we will explain the terms and conditions of the Global Entry program and answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Your Global Entry membership number is, "123456789", if your account is approved, this will become your Known Traveler Number for your TSA Pre-Check benefit. For more information on the TSA Pre-Check program please visit their web site at www.tsa.gov/tsa-precheck.

Thank you for applying to the Global Entry Program. If you have any questions, please visit the Global Entry website at www.globalentry.gov. You may also contact the CBP Info Center at (877) 227-5511 or by visiting their website at https://help.cbp.gov.

Respectfully,

(unsigned)

Supervisor, Global Entry Enrollment Center
U.S. Customs and Border Protection

Note: names and numbers used herein are fictitious
You can check the status of your application from your TTP Website dashboard, which is displayed after you login. If you applied through GOES, you can find migration instructions here. Please DO NOT submit a new application as you will be liable for any additional fees incurred per the non-refundable terms and conditions you agree to prior to making payment.

If your application status is "Pending Review" then your application has been received and is being processed. Please note that processing times vary by applicant.

The vetting process cannot be expedited. If you submitted a renewal application before expiration of your current membership, then you can continue to use your benefits until the renewal is finalized (up to 6 months after your expiration date). [Please note that according to the information in post number 1552, the grace period has been extended to twelve months.]

After the application has been reviewed, the status will be updated to either "Conditionally Approved" or "Denied" and a letter will be posted in your TTP account with additional information. This letter can be found under Notifications on the Dashboard.

If conditionally approved, you will receive a notification to schedule your interview. It is important that you complete your interview within 365 days of conditional approval. Failure to schedule an interview in that timeframe will cancel your application and you will need to pay again and reapply if you still wish to be a member.

Please note that some Enrollment Centers have a long wait for an interview. Availability is displayed through your TTP account before applying and upon conditional approval. If you have immediate travel plans, please have flexibility in the center that you can visit for the interview. To see where the centers are located see the links below [please go to this CBP web page for the links].

You should prepare for your appointment as if you were newly applying, with passport, naturalization certificate or whatever you're using to establish qualification as well as documents establishing residency (state driver's license, senior identification, etc.) you will also have your fingerprints and photograph taken.

Be sure to mention anything you've forgotten to list in your application form, and to disclose any incidents such as being arrested (not just if you were found guilty) or Driving Under the Influence - alcohol or any substance - AKA "DUIs" (some posting in this thread report they were asked if they'd been charged with DUI);,these folks access various data bases, at least one of which includes data going back to the 1950s. Some members in this forum have posted they had trouble or were initially denied for not mentioning those incidents, even juvenile records that should have been expunged.

If your reapplication is approved, you will generally be notified quickly.

Your Global Entry Program Number / TT# and your PASSID will not change.

There are several credit cards such as the AMEX Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant that give rebates on the Global Entry fee once every five years.

Since I have several credit cards that reimburse me for TSA recheck and GE, I just used a different card to renew my TSA precheck membership. Voila, got an email today that is renewed and I did the renewal online on Saturday(today is Monday). So I should be good to go and get paid back. Win

Why do you keep both TSA PreCheck and Global Entry? Global Entry gives you TSA PreCheck benefit and more.

GE expires in August but I went ahead and renewed. Iím amazed at this expedient timeline:

Applied for renewal: January 5
Renewal approved: January 9
Card received: January 14

Also the new TT website is infinitely better than the GOES site previously used.

I don't understand the ordering of processing renewals. I applied for renewal on Dec 17th and my application is still pending. My membership expires in March. Is there one center or do different applications got to different processing centers, depending on where you reside?

The processing time depends on many factors including, but not limited to, travel, residence and work history.

My partner forgot about GE renewal and their membership will expire in early February. Is it possible to use GE after expiration while awaiting an interview scheduled at a later date (assuming one is required to do another interview)? Or, must one complete all steps of renewal, interview included, before the expiration date?

I understand the government shutdown has closed the application centers...how would this factor in?

Thanks so much for your advice, much appreciated in advance!

As long as the renewal application is made before to the current expiration date, s/he will continue to receive Global Entry benefits for six months after the current expiration date pending the renewal's final approval (source).

My son forgot to renew and submitted it about 1.5 months after expiration. Despite letting it lapse, he got Pre-check both times since then (about a week after submitting the renewal).

I'm going on 5+ months from the time I initially renewed now. I got conditional approval mid-October after applying beginning of September. Got the closest available appointment in December...ended up being the day the government shut down for GHW Bush's death. At least I got a warning ahead of time. Rescheduled for the day after Christmas, office closed for government shutdown, no call or email notifying of cancellation (understandable, but I did read that others were notified!) Rescheduled again near the end of Jan, now it looks like that appointment will be again be canceled due to the shutdown. I'm flying internationally this weekend and hoping there's a chance the enrollment on arrival office is open at the airport when I get back! Thankfully I started this process a year ahead of time, it's looking like it'll take a good 6 months at least.

Global Entry expired

I have a flight next week but my appointment to renew my GOES trusted traveler membership was canceled due to shutdown. Can I use my expired card? Will I still be TSA pre check qualified?

Hello 2lmush,

Welcome to FlyerTalk!

I have merged your question into the relevant thread.

If you applied for the renewal before your current membership expired, you can continue to use your Global Entry benefits pending the final approval of your renewal application for up to six months after its expiration date.

Will the system notify you when there has been a change in your application or do you have to continue to check the website?

My wife and I applied on Jan 8, 2019 and she was approved within a few days. No interview necessary. She received her card in less than 10 days after applying. My application shows that it is still pending review. Ironically, her GE had expired. My GE has not expired yet. Maybe my application needed hands on processing and hers went through without any flags in an automated fashion. I did have a few other countries in my list of countries that I have visited than she did.

System is supposed to notify you when there is a status change. However, it has been reported many times that no email notification was received when there was a status change. It is best for you to check website daily or every few days.
