Love TSA PreCheck and Global Entry? Check your expiration date.
Global Entry, a trusted traveler program from U.S. Customs and Border Protection that provides travelers with a speedier trip through customs when returning from international flights, also includes TSA PreCheck, a sister trusted traveler program. PreCheck allows passengers to go through a dedicated, usually quicker, security lane where they can keep shoes and coats on and leave laptops and approved liquids in their carry-on bags.
Between 30% and 35% of Global Entry applications and renewals are taking 90 days or more to complete, the remainder are completed within 15 days. Given the delays, CBP has extended the amount of time Global Entry members will retain their benefits, including PreCheck, past the expiration date as they await renewal. It is now a year instead of six months. The only caveat: You have to renew your membership before it expires.
