Trusted traveler programs expedite the inspection of preapproved, low-risk travelers to the United States. Trusted traveler programs help the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) achieve their goals of facilitating the lawful flow of people and goods while preventing the entry of unauthorized individuals, criminals, terrorists, and contraband. This book provides an overview of each program, including TSA’s and CBP’s legal authority to establish and operate these programs. It also outlines each program’s eligibility requirements and application process and summarizes each program’s screening/admissions, and membership.
