For the last couple of years, I have been telling anyone who would listen to get TSA Pre ✔️or better yet for $15 more that and Global Entry. While it’s true that TSA Pre ✔️ lines have gotten longer and longer. One can still be done with the process within 10 minutes or so. In my case, I already have Pre ✔️ but not GE. This weekend I decided to enroll all my family. The entire process took about an hour hence 20 minutes per person.
There is a new website and you will need to provide information about your residence, work history and countries visited (other than Canada and México) for the last 5 years. All in all, the process is not as bad as I feared. I took advantage of the fact our 3 premium credit cards will cover the $100 cost for each of us. Yes, unlike TSA Pre ✔️, minors require to fill out their own application, pay $100 and go through the interview process. I’ll let you know how the rest of the process goes.
