How to Apply for SENTRI

Before you apply, make sure you are eligible for SENTRI.

It’s easy. Just follow these steps:

  1. Create a Trusted Traveler Program (TTP) System account. Regardless of your age, you must have your own TTP account.
  2. Log in to your TTP account and complete the application. A non-refundable fee is required with each completed application.
  3. After accepting your completed application and fee, CBP will review your application. If your application is conditionally approved, then your TTP account will instruct you to schedule an interview at a SENTRI Enrollment Center. Each applicant must schedule a separate interview.
  4. You will need to bring your valid passport(s) and one other form of identification, such as a driver’s license or ID card to the interview. If you are a lawful permanent resident, you must present your permanent resident card. Also, required are vehicle registration and evidence of United States automobile insurance by a company authorized to write automobile insurance in the United States.


Reasonable Modifications for Applicants with a Disability
After you have submitted your application and scheduled an interview at a SENTRI Enrollment Center, if you require assistance for the interview because of a disability, contact the SENTRI Enrollment Center where your interview is scheduled to request a reasonable modification or auxiliary aid or service to complete the interview.  Requests for a modification, aid, or service should be made as soon as possible and prior to the date of an interview to allow sufficient time for making the appropriate arrangements at the interview location.
