Good morning everyone, happy Wednesday! I just received my renewed passport (with extra pages and passport card) yesterday and wanted to share a quick tip with you. Since Global Entry is tied to your fingerprints and your passport, you will need to update your Global Entry online account when you get a new or renewed passport, since the passport number and dates will change. All you need to do is log into your Global Entry account online (https://goes-app.cbp.dhs.gov/main/goes). I will give you a few minutes to remember your username and reset your password (that happened to me too). If you have Sentri, NEXUS, or FAST, the process should be verify similar.
After logging in, click the Update Documents link on the left hand side. As you can see, I was conditionally approved for Global Entry in 2013, I was approved by Global Entry in 2014, and my membership and Trusted Traveler Number (TSA PreCheck number) expires in 2019.
My passport was set to expire in early 2017 which would not be good for my January trip to Colombia, Argentina and Brazil. To update your passport information, click the Update link under the Passport 1 header. My driver’s license was also expired, so I needed to update that information as well.
Enter your new passport number, issuance date, and expiration date. Then click the Next button.
Verify that the new information is correct and click the Done button.
Go back to the Update Documents page and verify that the new passport information is showing up. My new 2016 passport expires in 2026. Woo hoo! Time to get my Brazilian visa!
If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
