  • New to CLEAR? When prompted, enter your email address, phone number, and have your government issued photo ID ready to complete enrollment.
  • Already a CLEAR member? Use the email address associated with your membership and snap a quick selfie to verify your identity.
  • Continue to follow prompts on the Entry Requirements page to securely confirm your proof of vaccination or negative test results.
