After a series of tests last summer, Nassau’s Lynden Pindling Airport officially opened the first-ever international TSA PreCheck screening checkpoint on February 24, 2022. So, U.S.-bound travelers will be able to use their TSA PreCheck memberships when returning stateside after vacationing in the Bahamas!

The destination was chosen because it is one of 16 international destinations where U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents inspect travelers prior to boarding flights that return to the states.

TSA officials are optimistic that the Nassau location will serve as a model for further extending TSA PreCheck.

(It) will make the Bahamas an even more attractive destination for Americans, who comprise more than 80% of our inbound tourists.
