Customer Question

I recently renewed my passport. I went through the pre-check procedure with my previous passport. My question is do I have re-apply for pre check status with my new passport or does the pre check status carry over to this passport?

Hello, Deborah and thanks for your question.

I'm sorry you didn't receive an earlier answer. Different experts are online at different times and I recently logged in and was notified of your question. Your patience is greatly appreciated!

You will not need to re-apply for Precheck status unless your Precheck is 5 years or older. Also, your Precheck account will not automatically update with your new passport number, through the system. As you know, Precheck is for domestic travel and Global Entry (GOES) (which may include Precheck, if you chose to add it) is for international travel. To add your new passport number to your current account, simply log into your GOES account on this page, below:;jsessionid=1bezy3vGKp3Ujib1wfjQz5O2fGpgFa75z73j0eVuZrm7TrWTqf-Y!-67449917


Scroll all the way down to the bottom and if you already have an account, enter your username and password; if not, you can register for an account where it says 'Register.'
