How to Apply for SENTRI
Before you apply, make sure you are eligible for SENTRI.
It’s easy. Just follow these steps:
- Create a Trusted Traveler Program (TTP) System account. Regardless of your age, you must have your own TTP account.
- Log in to your TTP account and complete the application. A non-refundable fee is required with each completed application.
- 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.
- 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.
