The Global Entry Card is issued to Global Entry members who are U.S. citizens, U.S. lawful permanent residents, or Mexican nationals. It allows Global Entry members to use Trusted Traveler lanes at the land borders for entry into the United States via NEXUS/SENTRI lanes at the border. Global Entry kiosks do not require a Global Entry card.
Login.gov is for secure sign in only. Your Login.gov account does not affect or have any information about your Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) application, membership, or eligibility. Please do not send Login.gov sensitive data about yourself or identifying membership numbers.

Please contact the Trusted Traveler Programs directly if you have questions regarding:
- Application status or changes to your application
- Scheduling or changing appointments
- Or other related concerns
- Your Known Traveler Number (KTN) will not change when you create a Login.gov account

Activating Your Global Entry Card
To activate your card, log into your Trusted Traveler Program (TPP) account. After you log in, click on the “Activate Membership Card” button under the Program Membership(s) section.
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.
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 Login.gov account. After you verify your identity with Login.gov for one government application, you don’t need to do it again for other government applications that use Login.gov 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.
