What might disqualify me from renewing my TSA Pre✓® membership?

Applicants must be U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents who successfully complete a background check that examines criminal history, lawful presence, and any association with terrorism. Additionally, TSA may determine that an applicant is not eligible based on analyses of records related to violations of transportation security regulatory requirements. These include security-related offenses at an airport, onboard an aircraft, at a maritime port, in connection with air cargo, and other regulatory violations.
