TSA Pre✓®

TSA Pre✓ is an expedited security screening program connecting travelers departing from the United States with smarter security and a better air travel experience.

The program allows passengers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case and keep 3-1-1 compliant liquids in a carry-on bag.

Once approved, travelers will receive a Known Traveler Number and will have the opportunity to utilize TSA Pre✓ lanes at security checkpoints.

Enrollment is open to U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents who apply online at and then go for in-person screening at a TSA Pre✓ Enrollment Center.
