It says on multiple websites that one's 9-digit Global Entry PASSID number should begin with a 98. However mine begins with a 15. Does anyone know what this means?


  • i agree ...there are so many numbers on the back of the card! I googled and it stated that the PASSID is the number to use and mine starts with 15 as well Apr 9, 2019 at 23:53

It seems to just be a thing that happens without any meaning as far as I'm aware. Some also begin with 99. TSA seems to say it's fine.

I'm not aware of any particular significance to it, though it seems to be the case for at least some applicants from the past few months.
