Due to COVID-19, Peterson Air Force base and Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station have suspended the trusted traveler program starting April 24, per a release.

While the program is suspended, authorized DOD identification card holders cannot escort non-DOD card holders on either base. The trusted traveler program allowed Department of Defense identification card holders the ability to escort non-identification card holders on base.

The Trusted Traveler Programs (Global Entry, TSA Pre✓®, SENTRI, NEXUS, and FAST) are risk-based programs to facilitate the entry of pre-approved travelers.

All applicants are vetted to ensure that they meet the qualifications for the program to which they are applying.

Individuals who do not have authorized base credentials but have an acceptable purpose to enter the installation can obtain a visitor pass at the Peterson and CMAFS visitor centers Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
