  • Renewal: You can begin the renewal process up to one year before your membership expires. This allows you to continue using Global Entry benefits even after your original membership period ends, as long as your renewal application is approved.
  • Grace period: If you submit your renewal application before your membership expires and it's still under process, you can still utilize Global Entry benefits for up to 24 months after the expiration date.

Here's a summary:

  • Validity: 5 years from your first birthday after approval
  • Renewal: Start the process up to 1 year before expiration
  • Grace period: Up to 24 months with a pending renewal application

Remember, it's always recommended to check the official U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) website for the latest information on Global Entry benefits, renewal procedures, and timelines. You can find their Global Entry FAQ
