TSA Pre?® is an expedited security screening program connecting travelers departing from the United States with smarter security and a better air travel experience. Passengers can apply for the TSA Pre?® Application Program to determine if they are low-risk and eligible to receive expedited screening.

Global Entry is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Members enter the United States through automatic kiosks at select airports.

At airports, program members proceed to Global Entry kiosks, present their machine-readable passport or U.S. permanent resident card, place their fingerprints on the scanner for fingerprint verification and complete a customs declaration. The kiosk issues the traveler a transaction receipt and directs the traveler to baggage claim and the exit.

Travelers must be pre-approved for the Global Entry program. All applicants undergo a rigorous background check and in-person interview before enrollment.

While Global Entry’s goal is to speed travelers through the process, members may still be selected for further examination when entering the United States. Any violation of the program’s terms and conditions will result in the appropriate enforcement action and termination of the traveler’s membership privileges.

Are you ready for REAL ID??

Beginning May 7, 2025, if you plan to use your state-issued ID or driver's license as your identification when you fly within the USA, it will need to be REAL ID compliant or you won't be allowed through TSA airport security checkpoints, so it's important to plan ahead.

There are a few states that have other compliance details and more rules about kids traveling, so take a look at the government website below for all the up to date information before traveling in the USA.
