Using Your Global Entry Card

We accept Global Entry cards for lawful U.S. entry at land and sea ports of entry.

Global Entry cards have radio frequency identification chips, which enable their use at Secure Electronic Network for Travelers Rapid Inspection (SENTRI) and NEXUS travel lanes when entering the United States at the land borders. You must follow all program rules for SENTRI when using this card at the Southern land border ports of entry.

You may use this card for expedited entry into the United States via the SENTRI and NEXUS lanes. The card is not valid for entry into Canada via the NEXUS lanes.

Only your passport or lawful permanent resident card are accepted at Global Entry kiosks. The Global Entry card cannot be used at Global Entry kiosks. NEXUS cards are accepted at Global Entry kiosks located on Canadian Preclearance Airports.

Trusted Traveler Programs

Verify your identity

Some participating agencies require you to complete an identity verification process. Identity verification is the process where you prove you are you – and not someone pretending to be you.

You only need to verify your identity once for your account. After you verify your identity with for one government application, you don’t need to do it again for other government applications that use and require identity verification. You are not required to upload a picture of yourself or take a selfie for identity verification.

Use this help section to understand the process and requirements for identity verification.

Your Trusted Traveler membership date is not dependent on the passport expiration date. Membership will remain valid, even if the passport expires. To minimize unnecessary delays, please update your documents on the TTP website.
