Can i use my sentri card for tsa precheck

Good news! Your SENTRI card is like a golden ticket that unlocks both SENTRI lanes at land borders and TSA PreCheck lanes at airports.

Think of it like this:

  • SENTRI: Speeds up your car rides into Canada or Mexico. ️🇲🇽🇨🇦
  • TSA PreCheck: Lets you skip the long lines at airport security. ✈️

So, you can use your SENTRI card for TSA PreCheck! No need for a separate program or card. Just whip out your handy SENTRI card when booking flights and add your Known Traveler Number (KTN) – a special code you get when you join SENTRI – to your airline reservation. That’s it! You’re good to go for faster airport security.

Here’s a quick recap:

  • SENTRI = Land border magic + TSA PreCheck bonus
  • No extra card needed, just your KTN
  • Book flights, add KTN, enjoy shorter lines!

Remember, TSA PreCheck only works for air travel within the US, while SENTRI helps with land crossings. But with one card, you get the best of both worlds!

So, next time you’re zipping through a SENTRI lane, remember you’ve also got the key to breezing through airport security. Happy travels!

P.S. If you’re not sure where to find your KTN, just log in to your CBP account or check the handy CBP One app. It’s like having all your travel superpowers in one place!
