Global Entry is one of my favorite travel tools. It provides TSA PreCheck for my domestic flights to get me to my flights quicker. And Global Entry allows me to skip the lines at customs when I come back from international vacations. I recently had to renew my passport, so then I had to figure out how to update Global Entry with my new passport number.

How to update Global Entry
You don’t need to figure out how to update Global Entry when you get a new passport, we’ll show you how in just a few simple steps.
Go to the GOES Website
Go to the GOES website and enter your login information to continue. If you’re like me, it has been over 4 years since I was approved for Global Entry membership, so you may need to reset your password and wait for the email with a reset link.
Although you receive a card from Global Entry when you establish your membership, I’ve never had a reason to use it. I still keep it with me while traveling just in case something happens to my passport or driver’s license.
Update Documents with new Passport information
In order to update your Global Entry membership with your new passport information, click on “Update Documents” which is in the menu on the left side of the screen.
Pro Tip: While you’re on this page, take notice of when your Global Entry membership expires. I entered a reminder in my Google Calendar a couple months ahead of time in case I needed to appear in person for an interview.
Here you can update your Passport or your Driver’s License information.
How to update Global Entry with new Passport Information
When you update your Global Entry profile with new passport information, notice that you can only update your passport number, the issue date, and the expiration date.
If you need to update your name or date of birth, that is a different process. In order to change your name or date of birth, you need to bring documents with you to an enrollment center.
When you’ve finished entering your passport number, issuance date, and expiration date, you’ll receive a confirmation message like this. Your new information will show below this message, but I cut it off for privacy’s sake.
