The Global Entry Card is used with your passport to return to the US from overseas.




No it isn't. Once linked to your new passport the card stays at home...I have never taken it anywhere. Passport only...

The NUMBER is what is important and used when booking flights and also for Trusted traveler/ PreCheck but the actual card is not needed

Edited to add: oops...missed the post above...duplicate thought

YUP ..The TRUSTED TRAVELER PROGRAM is a whole new kettle of fish: we registered for our Global Entry Card in September after returning from Ecuador. BUT ...

ON OCTOBER 1, everything changed .... a whole new system which required a whole new procedure for registration and ACCESS (we had to re-do EVERYTHING)

Login now requires EMAIL, and PASSWORD ... BUT ..wait for it: a further connection such as a TEXT MESSAGE to your cel ..... SO you loggin, but then have to wait for a TEXT MESSAGE with a further confirmation number which you much then INSET before you can access your DASHBOARD (as they call it) which has all your information.

You have to get to THIS DASHBOARD in order to activate or re-activate your card.

Do it a couple of times and it's easy! ...... But first time, it's a conundrum.

We use the card when we return from Canada by car. You go through the Nexus lane which is generally faster.

Yes; I mentioned land travel from Canada and Mexico in my first post.

Hmmm...although I remember that as a potential use I've never considered that. We've always used our passports. Might bring both next time and do some lane surfing.

We use our passports to get into Canada and the card on the way back.
