Global Entry - re-register with USA passport?

25 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been registered with Global Entry for a few years now.

When I registered I was a green card holder. Now that I have a US passport, do I need to re-register, or is there a simple way to update details with them?

Thanks

You have to re-register.

That's what I was told when I registered. The officer told me that I'd have to re-register every time I got a new passport (including a renewed Egyptian passport). This would require a new interview.

He also said that I would have to re-register every 5 years, but I'm not sure if that renewal would require another interview.

sorry to jump in, I want to register with global entry but I am still in the process of N-400, if I applied now, would this slow down the process of naturalization or it doesn't matter?

Global entry has nothing to do with USCIS or the N400 application. It won't slow down your process, but it will only apply to your current passport. When you get your American passport, you will have to reapply and pay the hundred dollar application fee again. So it doesn't make sense to apply now.

When I became a USC, I just registered my U.S. passport at EWR's GE office (no need for an appointment). They did not interview me. They just registered my passport. It took 5 minutes.

That's the "interview".

It only takes a few minutes and there's sn intro video they ask you to watch.

I did need an appointment at IAH in Houston, though.

Any update on this?

I cannot find any info on CBP website, other than "name change- or status change to passport"

Hi Jimmy,

Just curious how did you make an appointment if you are already a member of GE? (I am a member of GE, my on-line account doesn't have the option to change passport of orgin, or the option to make an appointment).

did you have to call the Enrollment Center?

Many of the Enrollment Centers don't like "Walk-ins" interviews.

thank you.

Tom_Jim,

Did you just walk-in, and told CBP you needed to register your passport,

I have GE (currently registered with my green card). I would like to keep my GE even after I get U.S. citizenship.

I only had one interview; I use my green card for GE.

Perhaps you need to create a new account and start from scratch? Not sure.

Before I applied, I walked in and asked what I needed to do to apply. The officers at the airport were very helpful and gave me a pamphlet and explained the process. I might ask them next time I pass through in a few weeks.

I don't want to hijack the thread. But is it really beneficial, the GE, specially with the Auto Kiosks that all major airports have ?

Hi DC85,

I used it once last October entering into U.S. via San Francisco,

both Visitor and Citizen/Permanent residents lanes were rather long (at least 10 min wait), while there is NO wait at the GE,

I scanned by Green Card (my GE account registred with Green Card), answer a few questions (touch screen), ....

to me, I would like to keep GE (though $100 is not cheap, considering that I don't travel overseas all that much).

I don't want to hijack the thread. But is it really beneficial, the GE, specially with the Auto Kiosks that all major airports have ?
