Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (DHS TRIP)
If you find yourself consistently being detained for secondary screenings at U.S. entry ports when returning from international destinations, you should probably contact the Department of Homeland Security’s Travel Redress Inquiry Program (“DHS TRIP”).
The above statement also applies to travelers who:
- Often face problems at ports of entry
- Were delayed or denied entrance on an airplane
- Were denied or delayed when trying to enter or exit U.S. ports of entry or border checkpoints.
- Feel that they have been improperly or unfairly: denied, delayed, or required to undergo additional screening at national transportation hubs.
The reasons for these additional screenings can be anything from being confused with someone else, or past convictions. Fortunately, for those who fall into any of the above categories, there are steps you can take to ease your entry and exit through these ports.
So, if you find yourself getting consistently singled out at U.S. entry ports and would like to avoid more of the same in the future, the above steps should point you in the right direction. However, you should note that resolving issues on your DHS files does not automatically exempt you from additional screening in the future. The selection process for determining which travelers are singled out depends on many other factors like random selection and travel patterns.
