TSA PreCheck®, Global Entry & Capital One

Enjoy a smoother process at the airport and receive up to a $100 statement credit with Capital One


Love to travel but don’t like waiting in line at the airport? Look no further than TSA PreCheck® or Global Entry. Both Trusted Traveler Programs can help you skip the longer lines and make your way through the airport more quickly.

And when you use your eligible Venture, Venture X or Spark Miles card to pay for the application fee and become a member of either program, you can get a statement credit of up to $100.*

What Is TSA PreCheck® & How Does It Work?

TSA PreCheck® makes departures from U.S. airports a little bit easier by giving you access to a smoother screening process and shorter wait times. You don’t have to take off your shoes and belt. And your electronics and liquids can stay in your bags.

TSA PreCheck® is available at more than 200 U.S. airports with over 80 participating airlines nationwide.

What Is Global Entry & How Does It Work?

Global Entry simplifies the customs process when you’re returning to the U.S. after traveling abroad. When returning to the U.S., Global Entry members can skip the customs line and instead use a Global Entry kiosk where available.

The kiosks will use your fingerprints and either your passport or U.S. permanent resident card to confirm your identity. And you can complete a customs declaration right at the kiosk.

Global Entry kiosks are available at over 75 airports.

And keep in mind that Global Entry doesn’t just help you at customs—it also includes TSA PreCheck® and all the perks that come with it.

How to Apply for TSA PreCheck® or Global Entry

The application process for both TSA PreCheck® and Global Entry is similar. You can fill out an application and pay the application fee online. Then you’ll schedule an appointment at an enrollment center for an in-person interview and background check. After that, you’ll be clear for takeoff once you’re approved.
