DHS (Department of Homeland Security) has launched the Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (TRIP), which allows travelers to seek redress and resolve possible watch list misidentification issues with any of the department's component agencies.
People who have been repeatedly identified for additional screening can file an inquiry to have erroneous information corrected in DHS systems.
You can learn more about the programm by visiting the official DHS website, see link following this article.
Airlines will be asking for more detailed information when you book a flight.
The new, federally-mandated program called Secure Flight, requires the information:
it is run by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Secure Flight shall greatly reduce the number of passengers misidentified as matches to the watch list.
People who have been repeatedly identified for additional screening can file an inquiry to have erroneous information corrected in DHS systems, see follwoing link to information regarding DHS-TRIP.
