What You Need To Know

You need to get things done and DHS is there to help you do just that. The DHS.gov website hosts a rich assortment of online applications to help you get it done online.

Start Here

You will find the latest collection of citizen applications at our Citizen Application Directory page. Here we have catalogued our collection by topic and included short descritions of each tool to help you find what you need. Although most of the applications are web-based tools, there are some mobile applications on the list as well.

An example of a web application is the DHS Travelers Redress Inquiry Program (TRIP). This App is for travelers who have been repeatedly identified for additional screening and who want to file an inquiry to have erroneous information corrected across DHS systems.

An example of a mobile application is MyTSA.  This app gives you easy access to information you need to get through security and onto the plane safely and smoothly.  This includes everything from packing tips, to a quick lookup of the rules of what items can be taken in checked or carry-on bags, delays at US airports and a crowd-sourcing tool to post and see other passengers’ checkpoint wait times.
