When does my TSA PreCheck expire?

I hear the same question from people all the time: “When does my TSA PreCheck expire?” The answer isn’t as simple as you might think. In fact, there are a lot of factors that affect how long your PreCheck status lasts before you need to renew it. This guide will walk through everything you need to know about when your PreCheck will expire and how to renew it as quickly and easily as possible.

When does my TSA PreCheck expire?

  • TSA PreCheck is valid for five years. If you have a U.S.-issued passport, you can renew your TSA PreCheck status online at tsa.gov/precheckrenewal or in person at an airport or Global Entry office.
  • You can also extend the validity of your Global Entry card by adding additional trips to its history log (for example, if you travel internationally and use it again within six months).

How to get TSA PreCheck

If you’re eligible for TSA PreCheck and want to take advantage of it, there are a few steps you’ll need to follow. We’ve put together a quick guide to help out:

  • Apply online at tsa.gov/tsa-precheck. The application form is easy to fill out and submit, but if you have any questions about your eligibility or the process in general, TSA representatives are available 24/7 at 866-289-9673. When applying, make sure that all of your information is accurate—if an error is found during the background check phase of the process, not only will your application be delayed but it also may be denied outright!
  • Pay $85 (or $100 if applying through an agency). Although this fee seems steep compared with many other government services (and it should!), don’t let sticker shock deter you from getting started; once approved for TSA PreCheck privileges (which can take up to three weeks), it’s good for five years—and that’s on top of whatever length of time passes between now and when your current enrollment expires!

Do I need to renew my TSA PreCheck after 5 years?

Do I need to renew my TSA PreCheck after 5 years?

No, you don’t need to renew your TSA PreCheck after 5 years. This is because the TSA makes it easy for you by allowing you to keep your status for life.

How do I renew my TSA PreCheck?

Renewing is simple and free, and it can be done online at https://www.tsa.gov/precheck/application-renewal/. The process takes about 10 minutes and will only require that you provide some personal information about yourself (name, address, phone number) as well as some basic identification documents so that the government knows who they are dealing with when they approve their application.

How much does it cost to renew your TSA PreCheck?

The cost to renew your TSA PreCheck is $85 for five years. You can renew online, at an airport, by mail or by phone.

You can pay with a credit card or check (made out to the Department of Homeland Security).

Renewing your TSA PreCheck is easy and can save you a lot of time.

If you’ve been a regular TSA PreCheck passenger, you’ll likely want to renew your status before it expires. This is easy; all you have to do is visit the TSA’s website and click “renew” next to your name. You can also renew in-person at any airport that offers the service.

When using this method (online or in person), don’t forget that the price of renewal remains constant for five years after purchase—so if it’s been more than five years since your previous purchase of TSA PreCheck and you’re ready for another go-round, think about whether or not it would be worth paying extra just so that you don’t have to keep paying for a new membership every year or two. The cost savings may not be worth losing out on those extra minutes spent waiting in line at security!

Renewing is Easy!

Renewing your TSA PreCheck is easy and can save you a lot of time. With this knowledge, we hope you have a better understanding of how to renew your TSA PreCheck so that you can continue to use it for years to come! If you’re considering applying for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck, make sure not only do you know when your current status expires but also how much it costs per year.
