Each day, the people board on airplane increases. Some of them have a problem but some doesn’t. One of those problems may involve the no-fly list. The no fly list was designed to make air travel safer but there are some instances when the wrong individuals have been targeted. The commonly mistake that had been made include mistaken identities or misspelled names. All problems can be solved and same with the no fly list. There are ways that you can get yourself off of the no-fly list.
Although you can get your name off the no fly list, it is important to remember that it will not happen overnight. It is almost a guarantee that you will not be able to board your plane if you are notified that your name is on the no fly list at the airport. Since airport security cannot rely on your word, they will likely not allow you to proceed any further. You may be detained for a short time period but once you are released, you can take actions to remove your name from the no-fly list.
First of all, if you want to remove your name, the first thing you need to do is contact the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Once you are notified that your name is on the no-fly list, you should be provided with the contact information for the TSA. Besides that, if you don’t have any information about it, you can just give a call by visiting their online website. That online website can be found at www.tsa.gov. Next, you will be an instruction on what you need to do after that. Those instructions will likely include filling out a form that should be mailed to you.
In other hand, you also be asked to submit your identification to filling out the paperwork. You need to submit more than one piece of identification at three different times. The accepted items include a driver’s license, a government identification card, a military card, a social security card, a voter registration card, a passport, a visa, or your birth certificate. Just in case, although it requires only three identification documents, it shouldn’t be problem if you have more than that in your hand. After you have collected these items, they will need to be notarized by the proper officials.
The process will proceed after you have submitted all the required documents. Your name will be removed from the no-fly list. This process could take as little as a few weeks but it could take months. If officially your name been removed, you are advised against making any travel plans until you receive a confirmation. Once your name has been removed, all airlines will be notified about this. Now, you are able to purchase airline tickets and make travel plans.
If some mistakes occur, maybe there is a chance that someone else with the same name as you could be on the no fly list. Despite the fact that you are not the one on the no-fly list, you may experience some problems. And this is why the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has developed a traveler verification program. If you are mistaken by someone else, it may be a good idea to register for that program. The information can be found in the website of TSA.
