TSA Pre✓® is an expedited screening program that allows members to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt in designated screening lanes. Members also may keep their laptop in its case and
3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels baggies in a carry-on bag.

Travelers who are enrolled in TSA Pre✓® or another trusted traveler program such as Customs and Border Protection’s Global Entry, SENTRI or NEXUS are permitted to keep their shoes, belts and light outerwear jackets on, and can leave their laptops and liquid 3-1-1 bags inside their carry-on when processing through an airport security checkpoint.

Cash and personal checks are not accepted. Enrollees will need to bring documentation proving identity and citizenship or legal residency status. Documentation requirements are listed on the DHS trusted traveler comparison tool site. Fingerprints are collected to complete a background check.

Successful applicants will receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN), which they can access online in about a week. Passengers should enter the KTN when booking airline reservations online via a participating airline website, via phone call to the airline reservation center, or with the travel management company making reservations.
