Will I receive an ID card or other credential to use TSA Pre✓® lanes?

No. A TSA Pre✓® indicator will be printed on your boarding pass and embedded in the barcode if you are eligible for TSA Pre✓® on your flight. When TSA scans your boarding pass at the security checkpoint, you may be referred to a TSA Pre✓® lane. We do not issue cards or credentials to access the TSA Pre✓® lane.

Although members of Global Entry, NEXUS, and SENTRI may be issued a card when approved for the program, you cannot use these cards to access the TSA Pre✓® lane. A TSA Pre✓® indicator will be printed on the boarding pass and embedded in the barcode if you are eligible for TSA Pre✓® for your flight.
