Global Entry Fee Increasing

Global Entry Fee Increasing


Global Entry Will Increase to $120 effective October 1, 2024 from its current $100 cost. Similarly, NEXUS application fees will also increase to $120 (from $50 currently). If your and/or your partner's/family's Global Entry privileges will expire in one year or less, it's worth applying prior to October, especially since Global Entry renewal can take one year or more.

The silver lining, for families with minor children, is that kids under 18 who apply or renew their Global Entry (or NEXUS or SENTRI) will NOT pay a fee if their parent or legal guardian is already a member or is concurrently applying for the same program.

It will be interesting to see if the following credit cards that reimburse $100 for Global Entry increase the reimbursement to $120 when the fee goes up:

  • Chase Sapphire Reserve (up to $100 reimbursement for Global Entry, TSA PreCheck or NEXUS application fee every 4 years)
  • United Explorer, United Club, United Quest, Aeroplan cards (up to $100 reimbursement for Global Entry, TSA PreCheck or NEXUS application fee every 4 years)
  • AMEX Platinum, AMEX Business Platinum, Centurion, Delta SkyMiles Reserve and Delta SkyMiles Platinum cards ($100 reimbursement for Global Entry every 4 years or $85 reimbursement for TSA PreCheck every 4.5 years)
  • Various Capital One cards also offer Global Entry/TSA PreCheck reimbursement, but we don't recommend Capital One, since it typically pulls from all three credit bureaus when you apply, and unlike Chase Ultimate Rewards, it doesn't transfer to United MileagePlus, where increasingly, many United awards aren't at the saver level and thus not available to Star Alliance partners.
  • We also don't recommend the Citi AAdvantage Executive MasterCard, which only reimburses the Global Entry fee every 5 years, instead of every 4 years.
