DHS Launches Traveler Redress Inquiry Program

February 22, 2007DHS Launches Traveler Redress Inquiry Program

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced today that it is launching the DHS Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (DHS TRIP). Under TRIP, travelers can now seek redress and resolve possible watch list misidentification issues with any of DHS' component agencies at an easy to use and easy to access online location at

DHS TRIP provides a way for legitimate travelers to address situations where individuals believe they have been incorrectly delayed, denied boarding, identified for additional screening, or have otherwise experienced difficulties when seeking entry into the country. The program also facilitates redress information sharing among the department’s component agencies and creates internal performance measures to monitor progress.

DHS TRIP enables travelers to outline their concerns in a single request via a secure Web site. The information received will be shared with applicable DHS component agencies, such as the Transportation Security Administration and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, as well as with the Department of State and when appropriate with airport and airline operators.

In addition to offering DHS TRIP, DHS reports that it has taken other steps to make the screening process more efficient and secure, to include the recent completion of a name-by-name review of the No-Fly list to ensure that only individuals currently posing a threat are included.
