What is the SENTRI Card/Pass?

SENTRI provides expedited CBP processing for pre-approved, low-risk travelers. Applicants must voluntarily undergo a thorough biographical background check against criminal, law enforcement, customs, immigration, and terrorist indices; a 10-fingerprint law enforcement check; and a personal interview with a CBP Officer. The SENTRI Pass is valid for 5 years. Every member of the family apply for their own SENTRI Pass including infants and children.

 

SENTRI Pass Benefits

The list of SENTRI pass benefits may be small but put simply, the time spent queuing at the US Mexico border particularly at peak times makes a SENTRI pass essential for anyone who crosses the border no matter how often. Some of the SENTRI program benefits are as follows:

  • Faster border crossing times even at peak periods.
  • Dedicated SENTRI lanes to expedite travel and save long queue times.
  • Faster border inspection time. Customs and Border Patrol estimate that it takes SENTRI card holders 10 seconds at the border guard’s inspection booth.
  • Fewer questions by border agents.
  • Less stress when traveling with children.

 

SENTRI Pass Requirements

Applicants may not qualify for participation in the SENTRI program if they:

  • Provide false or incomplete information on the application;
  • Have been convicted of any criminal offense or have pending criminal charges to include outstanding warrants;
  • Have been found in violation of any customs, immigration, or agriculture regulations or laws in any country;
  • Are subjects of an ongoing investigation by any federal, state, or local law enforcement agency;
  • Are inadmissible to the United States under immigration regulation, including applicants with approved waivers of inadmissibility or parole documentation;
