Default TSA Precheck

I was charged in 2012 and plead guilty to a Federal charge of Theft of Public Money on August 12, 2012. Did a year and a day (3/28/13 to 2/8/14)...supervised release..went back in a violation (9/29/15-3/28/17) and was off paper on 3/28/17.

Anyway, seven years passed and I applied for TSA Precheck on 11/27/19. I was approved and received my KTN (Known Traveller Number) in 1/9/20.

Itís encouraging that the past is being left exactly where it needs to be..in the past.

So for those of you who are more than 7 years out, it may be possible to get TSA Precheck. For me it was very easy and straight forward.

Even though you got your TSA precheck make sure that the visiting country will allow you entry. You can do this by calling the embassy for that country and ask what their requirements are.

I hold both a US and German passport; and so far since release Iíve been able to get into the EU, Australia and get this...Canada. My crime though charged at the federal level as a felony was ruled a summary (misdemeanor) offense in Canada, making me admissible there. I can get into Europe since Iím an EU citizen.. and Australia entry cites being incarcerated for more than a year. Since I was incarcerated less, then I meet admissibility there. Havenít tried Asia yet. Thanks for the heads up.

That's good to know & encouraging. I wonder if different things apply to different crimes. I am going to share this with my son. He would love to eventually travel. He was like you, sentenced to a short time to serve but a state charge & then probation. Caught a technical violation & had to serve 2 years. He will be off supervision in 2024. I hope then he can travel. We'd like to visit Ireland but don't know if it'll ever be possible
