Renewing Your Global Entry Membership: A Step-by-Step Guide

Global Entry is a trusted traveler program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Once you are approved for Global Entry, your membership is valid for five years. However, it is essential to renew your membership before it expires to continue enjoying the benefits of this program. In this article, we will guide you through the process of renewing your Global Entry membership.

1. Check Your Eligibility

Before starting the renewal process, make sure that you are eligible to renew your Global Entry membership. To be eligible for renewal, you must have an active Global Entry account and be in good standing with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

2. Log In to the Trusted Traveler Program (TTP) System

To renew your Global Entry membership, log in to the Trusted Traveler Program (TTP) system using your existing credentials. Once logged in, navigate to the “Manage Membership” section where you will find an option to renew your membership.

3. Review and Update Your Information

Take this opportunity to review and update any personal information that may have changed since you initially applied for Global Entry. Make sure all details are accurate and up-to-date before proceeding with the renewal process.

4. Pay the Renewal Fee

There is a non-refundable fee associated with renewing your Global Entry membership. The current fee for renewal is $100, which must be paid online during the renewal process. Be prepared to provide payment information when prompted.

5. Schedule an Interview (if required)

In some cases, CBP may require you to schedule an in-person interview as part of the renewal process. If selected for an interview, follow the instructions provided by CBP to schedule a convenient date and time at a designated enrollment center.

6. Receive Conditional Approval

After submitting your renewal application and completing any necessary interviews, you will receive conditional approval from CBP indicating that your renewal is being processed. This approval typically arrives within a few weeks of submitting your application.
