Most FAQ’s can be answered at https://www.tsa.gov/tsa-precheck/faq.
How long does it take to receive my KTN?
This is one of our most popular questions. On average we find that it takes 21-35 days to receive your KTN number in the mail. The TRICK is to check the TSA website www.tsa.gov 5-7 days. Usually your KTN number will be listed online long before you receive it in the mail. You can start using your number for flights as soon as it’s posted online.
How will I know that I have been cleared for TSA Pre✓®?
Participating airlines will print a TSA Pre✓® indicator directly on the boarding pass. Travelers cleared for TSA Pre✓® will have information embedded in the bar-code of their boarding pass. Once the boarding pass is scanned at the checkpoint, the TSA officer may refer you to the TSA Pre✓® lane.
Why can’t I use the TSA Pre✓® lanes when traveling with any airline?
Passengers must be traveling on an airline that has entered into a partnership with TSA. TSA then works with the airline to establish system and checkpoint requirements and to determine deployment of TSA Pre✓® lanes based on airport operations.
How do I add my KTN to previous reservations?
Contact your air carrier or visit their website to add your KTN to any previous reservations. The airline also can confirm that your first/middle/last name are in the correct Secure Flight fields. The KTN will be submitted along with Secure Flight passenger data to TSA. Remember to enter your full name, date of birth and KTN exactly as you provided during the TSA Pre✓® application process or when you enrolled in a CBP trusted traveler program.
How do I apply for TSA Pre✓® ?
To receive TSA Pre✓® expedited screening, you can apply for one of four DHS trusted traveler programs (TSA Pre✓® Application Program, Global Entry, NEXUS or SENTRI) if you are not already a member of a DHS trusted traveler program, or are not a member of the U.S. Armed Forces.
