TSA Guidance for Travelers

General traveler information can be found at the TSA website.

CLEAR is available at Washington Dulles 

CLEAR is a Registered Travelers’ Program that allows members to bypass the traditional document review at the Security Checkpoints.  To enroll, CLEAR customers visit one of two CLEAR kiosks located in the Terminal Building at Dulles, both found on the Departures – Ticketing/Check-In Level. One is situated just outside the West Security Checkpoint; the second outside the East Security Checkpoint.

After becoming a registered CLEAR member, customers are able to scan their boarding passes and provide a biomentric scan of their finger or eye to instantly verify their identity, each time they fly.  After verification, a CLEAR representative escorts the customer to an area at the security check point, located nearby.

Visit clearme.com for more information or visit one of the CLEAR Enrollment Kiosks at Washington Dulles, located near the East and West Security Checkpoints on the Departures – Ticketing/Check-In Level of the Terminal. 

TSA Pre✓™ Information

TSA Pre✓™ is an expedited security process for individuals who have enrolled in the program. Information about eligibility and the application process can be found at the TSA Pre✓™ website or at the TSA Pre✓™ Enrollment Center in Dulles International Airport. It is located near the East Security Checkpoint.
