How does CLEAR work with TSA PreCheck?
Those with TSA PreCheck can also enjoy CLEAR to speed even faster through the full airport security and screening process. If you are TSA PreCheck eligible for your flight, visit the CLEAR Lane and verify your identity. We'll read your TSA PreCheck eligibility on your boarding pass and escort you to the TSA PreCheck expedited lanes for physical screening. Visit our WHERE WE ARE page before your next flight to see which CLEAR Lanes are situated next to TSA PreCheck. CLEAR and TSA PreCheck are sold separately and it is not necessary to have TSA PreCheck to use CLEAR. CLEAR speeds up the travel document check process, while TSA PreCheck expedites the physical screening process. Many of our members find that these two services complement each other providing the quickest, surest route through the entire airport security and screening experience.
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 speeds passengers through physical screening while Global Entry speeds passengers through US Border Control and Customs on arriving flights. 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.
