Global Entry provides the TSA Pre ? ® benefit plus expedited US customs screening for international air travelers when entering the United States. If you join Global Entry, NEXUS, or SENTRI, use your membership number as a “known traveler number” in airline reservations to receive TSA Pre ? ®.

Also question is, can I use my Global entry card for TSA Pre?

Although members of Global Entry, NEXUS, and SENTRI may be issued a card when approved for the program, you cannot use these cards to access the TSA Pre ? ® lane. A TSA Pre ? ® indicator will be printed on the boarding pass and embedded in the barcode if you are eligible for TSA Pre ? ® for your flight.

Also Know, how long does it take to get approved for Global Entry? Please note that processing times vary by applicant, but on average you can expect your application to be processed for Global Entry and FAST within 6 months, SENTRI 12 months and NEXUS 6 months. This includes vehicle enrollments. The vetting process cannot be expedited.

Hereof, which is better TSA Precheck or Global Entry?

The biggest difference between TSA Precheck and Global Entry is that while both expedite your security screenings at domestic airports, only Global Entry expedites your entry back into the US after international flights. Airport security lines aren't getting shorter anytime soon.

Is TSA Global Entry worth it?

The fee for applying for Global Entry is $100. When you consider the time you save going through security with TSA Precheck and going through US customs after traveling internationally, it's well worth the money. Global Entry, like TSA Precheck, is valid for five years for this one-time fee.

Do seniors automatically get TSA PreCheck?

TSA Pre-Check is not for free for seniors. As I mentioned earlier, you might lucky and get Pre-Check randomly issued to you for free, though. If you are 75 or older, you should be able to keep your light jacket and shoes on when going through security so you do have a form of Pre-Check in many cases.
