What is TSA Pre-® trusted traveler program?

TSA Pre-✓® is a program that allows trusted travelers to expedite their TSA screening process at TSA security checkpoints. TSA Pre-✓®  is available at over 200 airports and includes 54 associated airlines. To join, you must be pre-approved as a low-risk traveler, and you're required to fulfill certain backgrounds checks and interviews.


How to apply for the TSA Pre-✓® trusted traveler program?

To become a member of TSA Pre-✓®, you must be a U.S. citizen or U.S. Lawful Permanent Resident. First, you are required to submit an online application.

  1. Create your Trusted Traveler Programs account
  2. Fill out your application
  3. Pay $85 nonrefundable fee


If you meet the prerequisites, you will need to schedule an in-person interview before being approved into the program. Make sure that you bring along any documents necessary for your interview. These can include your passport or other forms of identification, such as a driver’s license or ID card.

Once you are done with these steps, it should take less than four weeks for all of your information to processed. You should receive an approval during this time!


What are the benefits of the TSA Pre-✓®  trusted traveler program?

All members are given access to TSA Pre✓® expedited security screening lanes at participating airports in the U.S. If you’re a frequent traveler, it will surely cut down those long waiting times on your way to your destination!


How much are the fees for the TSA Pre-✓® trusted traveler program?

Becoming a TSA Pre-✓® member is $85. This covers your application fee, and counts towards your 5 year membership. It will definitely be worth it if you are traveling often.

You are able to pay for your fee by credit card or with an electronic bank transfer. However, because this fee is nonrefundable, even if your application is denied by TSA Pre-✓®, you will not get your money back. Because of this, it is definitely suggested to make sure that all of your information is accurate on your application.


What you need to know before joining the TSA Pre-✓® trusted traveler program?

Minors ages 12 and below are able to use the TSA Pre✓® lane if they are traveling with a parent or guardian who is a member. Any minors 13 years old and older who do not have their own TSA Pre✓® pass are required to go through standard security lanes. However, there is no age requirement before applying to the program itself.

Although TSA Pre✓® is designed to allow for a speedier process, the TSA does employ unpredictable security measures. Therefore, no one is guaranteed an expedited screening. Those who commit particular violations of federal security regulations will be denied expedited screening for some time.
