Save time getting through airport security with Trusted Traveler Programs

When you become a member of a Trusted Traveler Program, you can spend less time in airport security lines and at border crossings.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) manages the Trusted Traveler Programs. These include TSA Precheck and Global Entry. As a member, you can use expedited lanes at U.S. airports and when entering the U.S. by land or sea. 

To apply, you will need to pay a fee and provide documents proving your identity. Depending on the program, you may need to complete an interview. If approved, your program membership will last 5 years.
