Re: TSA Pre-Check [Re: SXMScubaman]

I did find this on the TSA precheck site:

Q. If I have already been approved for Global Entry, NEXUS, SENTRI, or if I already have a KTN, do I need to apply for the TSA Pre✓ application program?
A. Individuals who already have a KTN, including U.S. citizens who are members of Global Entry, NEXUS, or SENTRI and Canadian citizen members of NEXUS, need not enroll in the TSA Pre✓ application program.

Why was one stamped and the other not? Could it be because your KTN number isn't on both your airlines profiles?
I just want to make sure I apply for the right program as going through the TSA check line quickly is more important to me than the immigration line as I usually have plenty of time for that.

Because TSA precheck is random. You are not guaranteed to get it every time you fly, even though your numbers are correctly recorded in your airline profile.

It was my understanding that once you have your number, any future flight bookings you would get Pre-Check. Any already purchased tickets would be random.

I am certainly no expert on this, and we are new to the program so still learning.
Cheers,
T

We just did the Application for Global Entry. Only glitch was on the countries visited in the last 5 years. St Maarten wasn't on the list but the Netherlands were. So I put Netherlands. Hope I didn't screw up.

When we were approved for global entry, we were told TSA pre check was random. That was a year ago, so things may have changed.

No, things have not changed, you are correct - pre-check randomly selects pre-check travelers for "spot" checks just to "test" the system as does global entry.

So the general rule is you get it, unless you don't!

Scoob - your going to jail! I would not worry about the answer, just explain it if given the chance.

Hi Jazz, It's not that easy. Not all airports have it -- those that do are fine, those that don't -- you still have to take shoes off etc. The good news is that it's expanding. :)

They just opened an office in Des Moines for applicants and have opened a line at the airport for its use. Pleasantly surprised.
