How Do You Define TSA PreCheck?
TSA PreCheck is a U.S. government program that allows low-risk passengers to undergo rapid security screening at designated U.S. airports through the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), a U.S. Department of Homeland Security agency. ۔ In July 2019 alone, 93% of TSA pre-check passengers took less than five minutes to pass TSA security.
- The TSA pre-check is a way of releasing pre-selected and verified passengers, allowing security to speed through and reduce queues where other passengers have to wait.
- The application process can be started online, but a personal background check is also required.
- Once approved, passengers will receive a valid Tourist Nine Number (KTN) for five years.
