Want to leave your shoes on next time you head to the airport? Then consider applying for the TSA Pre Check program, it is a program that gives travelers leaving from the U.S. access to an expedited security screening program at the airport. U.S. citizens and lawful permanent U.S. residents can apply for the program and go through a three step screening process in order to become a “trusted traveler.” Some of the reasons travelers are in love with the program are shorter lines for TSA Pre Check members. TSA’s website says that in December 2017, 93% of members waited less than 5 minutes. You also don’t need to take your shoes, belts or light jackets off, and you can leave your laptop and liquids in your bag. A parent or guardian with TSA Pre Check can even bring family members ages 12 and under along with them in the expedited lanes.
Registering for the program is not that hard either. First you submit an online application in five minutes & schedule an appointment at any of 380+ enrollment centers. Second you have a 10 minute, in person appointment that includes a background check and fingerprinting, which has to be completed within 45 days of the online application. Third, you add your KTN to your airline ticket and enjoy your flight! TSA Pre Check is available in 200 airports with 42 participating airlines.
