CLEAR Plus, TSA PreCheck® and Global Entry are all separate services that help expedite different parts of the travel experience. At airports, CLEAR Plus 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 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.

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 Plus along with these other services, but CLEAR Plus Members do not need TSA PreCheck® or Global Entry to enjoy the benefits of CLEAR.
