The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Pre✔® program is available to eligible passengers traveling domestically on participating airlines, as well as those who are members of CBP Trusted Traveler programs, including Global Entry, SENTRI and NEXUS.
Through the TSA Pre✔® vetting process, information is embedded in a barcode on your boarding pass. This information alerts TSA agents that you are eligible for expedited screening. In the TSA Pre-Check lane you may no longer need to remove the following items:
- 3-1-1 compliant bag from your carry-on (liquid/gel restrictions still apply)
- Laptop from your bag (if your bag is cluttered or electronic items are stacked on top of each other, TSA may require removal)
- Light outerwear or jacket
Visit the TSA Pre✓® website for more information on the program.
