When is CLEAR launching TSA PreCheck® enrollment?
CLEAR is motivated to bring this to the traveling public and is working with TSA to launch. TSA and CLEAR will make an announcement and update the tsa.gov/precheck website when CLEAR begins offering TSA PreCheck® enrollment.
How is CLEAR different from TSA PreCheck® or Global Entry?
CLEAR, TSA PreCheck® and Global Entry are all separate services that help expedite different parts of the travel experience. At airports, CLEAR speeds members through the travel document check process on departing flights. CLEAR members also enjoy an expedited screening process at sports stadiums and other partner services where CLEAR is used to confirm identity.
TSA PreCheck® is a U.S. government program that identifies travelers deemed low-risk by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Once approved to participate in the program, it allows travelers to pass through an expedited security screening at U.S. airports nationwide with no need to remove shoes, laptops, 3-1-1 liquids, belts or light jackets.
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. Many of our members enjoy CLEAR along with these other services, but CLEAR members do not need TSA PreCheck® or Global Entry to enjoy the benefits of CLEAR.
What’s the difference between CLEAR and TSA PreCheck®?
CLEAR allows for a quick identity verification experience. Step right up to a CLEAR pod and verify you are you with your eyes or fingerprint.
TSA PreCheck® is a U.S. government program that identifies travelers deemed low-risk through a security threat assessment performed by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Once approved to participate in the program, it allows travelers to pass through an expedited security screening at U.S. airports nationwide with no need to remove shoes, laptops, 3-1-1 liquids, belts or light jackets. This allows travelers to enjoy a more convenient and efficient experience at airport security. Many of our members find that these two services complement each other — providing the quickest, surest route through the airport.
