TSA PreCheck® is designed to help travelers experience a smoother security screening process when traveling from the United States. TSA PreCheck® passengers use dedicated security lanes where they do not need to remove shoes, belts, 3-1-1 liquids, laptops, or light jackets.
Benefits of TSA PreCheck®
Trusted Traveler Programs
TSA suggests that travelers who make at least three roundtrips per year enroll in a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Trusted Traveler program, such as TSA PreCheck®. Depending on where you travel, you can also consider Global Entry®, NEXUS or SENTRI for expedited security screening. Memberships are valid for 5 years. Learn more about applying for a DHS Trusted Traveler Program.
Enroll in TSA PreCheck or another DHS Trusted Traveler Program
In addition to applying for TSA PreCheck®, which is open to U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals and U.S. lawful permanent residents, you can also consider applying for Global Entry, NEXUS or SENTRI. These programs are recommended for frequent international travelers and include TSA PreCheck®. Approved travelers are given a nine-digit PASS ID to use as their KTN. Global Entry is open to U.S. citizens, U.S. lawful permanent residents and citizens of certain other countries. The Global Entry, NEXUS and SENTRI cards are REAL ID-compliant and can be used as identification at U.S. security checkpoints.
U.S. citizens who make an occasional international trip may use the free Mobile Passport Control App to speed up their entry into the U.S.
Members of the U.S. Armed Forces, including those serving in the U.S. Coast Guard, Reserves and National Guard, can use their 10-digit DoD ID number as their KTN.
Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC®) and Hazardous Materials Endorsement (HME) holders can obtain TSA PreCheck® expedited screening by entering the identification numbers printed on their TWIC® card or state-issued commercial driver’s license (CDL) during the airline reservation process. Active TWIC® card holders enter their TWIC® credential identification number (CIN) in the known traveler number (KTN) field of their airline reservation. The CIN is printed on the back of each TWIC® card in the lower left-hand corner. Active HME holders enter the two-letter state abbreviation and CDL identification number from their state-issued CDL in the appropriate KTN field. (For example: NY12345678.)

TSA uses unpredictable security measures throughout the airport. Some you may clearly see; others you may not notice. All travelers will be screened and expedited screening isn’t guaranteed.
