There is no TSA Pre-check at SXM because there is no TSA at SXM, no matter what is printed on your boarding pass.

Where the Pre-check would come in handy is wherever you clear Immigration and make a connection in the US. If you're connecting in MIA, for example, after you clear Immigration and Customs you have to recheck your bags and then reclear security. You should be able to use the TSA Pre-check security line at MIA.

It's been years since I flew out of Key West, but I remember the airport as being tiny. Is there even room for a TSA Pre-check security line at EYW?

No, I was just wondering. I could get pre check done quickly in time for the May 9th trip but I don't think I have enough time for the Global Entry process. Especially if they have to have your passport for any length of time which I'm not sure if they do.

You do not give up your passport, you take it with you to the interview and it is always in sight. MJ was able to get the complete process done in under two weeks, it took me three. It all comes down to getting the appointment for the interview. I would suggest if you do not see a date prior to your trip to wait and keep checking to see if there is a cancellation and then grab that spot, that is what we did.

Just so you know however, this will not help with the lines at Flamingo for check in or the car rental counter!

Cheers,
T

No lines with Lesley (Kenny's), Todd.

Thanks Todd. I'll start the process for GE. As far as lines go at the Flamingo as soon as I walk in someone comes and greats me from the back of the counter. Never a wait. I have a great relationship with my many friends at the Flamingo.

We had it randomly applied to us just a couple of days ago on our way to the island. Printed out our boarding passes for a US Air flight and noticed the TSAPRECHK on her boarding pass. Didn't pay much attention to it until we got to the security area and they gave my wife the option to go in another line but not me! She decided to stay in the line I was in anyway.

Very funny the randomness of it. Even the boarding zones on our boarding passes were different. Hers was zone 2 and mine was zone 4, even though we were sitting together! We ignored the zone 4 and boarded together with zone 2. Just strikes me as funny that our reservations had both of our FF numbers on them and we both have identical points in our FF accounts. Go figure

This same thing happened to us on our last trip to the island. We are both Trusted Travelers via the Global Entry program, but TSA Precheck is random. When I got it and David didn't, I took the carry-on that contained our liquids and laptop, which made it easier for him.

We also both had it printed on our boarding passes when we left SXM. Since they don't have separate lines it's meaningless there.

I was under the impression that the TSA precheck status (if that's the term) was also included in your Global Entry enrolment. Am I misinformed?
