Even if you have TSA PreCheck® , now might be the time to add Clear® to your list of ways to get through airport security faster. A Clear® Plus memership works like this: After signing up online and completing a short in-person biometric scan to verify your identity, you’ll be able to walk up to a Clear® kiosk at any airport where there is one and scan your fingerprints or eyes (no need to scan your license or passport). Then a Clear® representative will escort you straight to the security checkpoint, bypassing the regular line where the TSA agents check your ID.

With airport security lines commanding extra-long waits nowadays and even TSA PreCheck lines getting longer, Clear® delivers a faster and more efficient airport experience. And with the right credit card or frequent flier affiliation, you can score a free or heavily discounted annual membership.

How much does Clear® Plus cost?

It typically costs $189 for an annual Clear® Plus membership , but there are several ways to lower this number through frequent flier memberships, promotional codes, or credit card statement credits. You can also add up to three family members and friends to your account for an extra $60 each per year. Those family members and friends don’t need to be traveling with you or together to use their memberships. Relatives under 18 years old can always join in the Clear® lane alongside a member at no cost.

Is Clear® Plus worth it?

Overall, a Clear® Plus membership is worth it if you regularly fly through any of the dozens of U.S. airports it currently serves, including JFK, LAX, and Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. If you’re a sports fan, your Clear® membership also allows you to skip the line at many major sports stadiums throughout the country, including Oracle Park in San Francisco and Denver’s Coors Field.

Additionally, Clear® has some tools that may expedite your pandemic-era trip. You can store your digital vaccination card through Clear® as well as sometimes upload documents to create a Health Pass for air or cruise travel (when required).

How to get Clear® Plus for free

In addition to offering statement credits covering Global Entry and TSA PreCheck® fees , the Platinum Card® from American Express (annual fee $695, see rates and fees ) also offers up to $189 in statement credits each year toward an annual Clear® Plus membership fee. Same goes for the Business Platinum Card® from American Express (annual fee $695, see rates and fees ). While the American Express® Green Card provides a statement credit up to $189 annually, there is, interestingly, no Clear® benefit for Gold cardholders.

You first must enroll for this benefit online or by calling the number on the back of your card. After enrolling, simply charge your annual membership to your Platinum or Green card and days or weeks later a statement credit will appear for the amount paid, up to $189. It’s important to note that while Global Entry and TSA PreCheck credits extend to each additional Platinum card holder , the Clear® credit does not.

It’s also possible to get a free membership as a top frequent flier. If you hold Delta’s coveted Diamond Medallion status, you can get a Clear® membership for free. Likewise, those with United Premier 1K status also receive complimentary membership.

Clear® discounts for Delta SkyMiles members

Anyone with a SkyMiles account (which is free to sign up for) can pay $179 for an annual Clear® membership—a savings of $10 off the full price. If you’re a Platinum, Gold, or Silver Medallion member on Delta, or have a Delta SkyMiles credit card, you’ll only pay $149. To enroll, simply sign up at clearme.com/partner/delta using your SkyMiles account number.

Clear® discounts for United MileagePlus members

Anyone with a Mileage Plus account (which is also free to sign up for) qualifies for a discounted $179 annual Clear® membership. Those with United Premier Platinum, Gold, or Silver status and United U.S. credit card members can obtain membership for $149 annually. To link your frequent flier account with a membership, add your MileagePlus number when signing up at clearme.com/partner/united .

Combining Amex and airline benefits

It’s possible to combine airline discounts with Amex statement credits to maximize a Clear® membership for yourself, family, and friends. Here’s how. First, enroll for your Clear® credit as a Platinum or Green card holder. Then, sign up for a membership through either Delta’s or United’s partner links for discounted pricing. This way, your membership costs $179 at most. Platinum and Green cardholders will get the full $179 credit.

Is Clear® better than TSA PreCheck?

Although people see Clear® and TSA PreCheck as competitors, they are meant to complement one another. TSA PreCheck is free with over a dozen credit cards and is an essential for travel through U.S. airports. Clear® is an added time-saving service on top of TSA PreCheck at select airports.

If you still feel the need to choose one, TSA PreCheck always wins. PreCheck lines are far shorter and faster than regular airport security lines. The annual fee is $85 for five years (and reimbursed by many credit cards ). Not having to remove shoes, electronics, or 3-1-1 liquids makes airport security a breeze.

We don’t recommend getting a Clear® membership without a TSA PreCheck membership. You’ll still fast track to the front of the regular airport security line but will need to take off your shoes and remove your electronics from your bag while going through the checkpoint. This means your time savings are kind of out the window.

In total, the optimal situation is to have both TSA PreCheck and Clear®. It’s the most you can do to make today’s airport experience as fast and efficient as possible. Those who carry the Platinum Card® from American Express can score both for free, while frequent flier members of both Delta and United can land deep discounts on a Clear® membership.

While the offers mentioned above are accurate at the time of publication, they are subject to change at any time, and may have changed or may no longer be available. All information about the American Express® Green Card has been collected independently by AFAR.

How to use CLEAR’s Health Pass app to store your digital COVID-19 vaccine card for work, travel, leisure and more

Clear app digital vaccine card in the CLEAR app

The COVID-19 pandemic has made all aspects of life more challenging, but the Clear Health Pass app is here to help make navigating through our “new normal” as easy and streamlined as possible.

As someone who laminated their flimsy CDC vaccination card (as this is now travel gold!), Obviously, this simple card was not meant for daily wear and tear or long-term use.

It makes the most sense to secure our health status in a mobile, digital way in today’s world. CLEAR’s Health Pass app safely stores this information and makes it readily available on demand for any situation where it is needed.

What is CLEAR?

Airport security by CLEAR

Since its debut around ten years ago, CLEAR has been helping airports and passengers be more efficient while traveling. CLEAR uses biometric identifiers – your eyes, face, and fingerprints instead of using traditional identification documents to pass security. These form a specialized ID that is unique to you.

When it comes to your protected health information, security comes second to none. Rest assured knowing that CLEAR is SAFETY Act Certified by the Department of Homeland Security.

With airport safety and efficiency covered, CLEAR is now expanding into the digital health world. Their new app gives you access to important vaccination documents and health information needed for travel and other venues.

How to download and set up the CLEAR Health Pass app

Vaccine validation with clear health pass

As international travel, concert venues, sports arenas, and other public spaces continually adapt to the ever-changing health regulations, a few things remain pretty constant – your vaccination status and/or your presentation of a negative COVID-19 test.

As I cautiously ventured to Europe this summer, those were the first two questions I was asked by everyone, everywhere. My vaccination card or negative test result were sought after even before handing over my passport for an international flight.

That was a first in all my years of travel.

At that point, my frail CDC card was not meant to be pulled in and out of my wallet regularly, handled by multiple airline agents, and shoved back to me between a boarding pass and passport (only to be pulled out again at the next checkpoint).

This is where the CLEAR Health Pass app comes in! Imagine having all of your needed health documents in one place at the touch of a button (or touch screen!).

Once you have downloaded the CLEAR app , you can immediately fill in your health profile.

To link your vaccination card:

open the CLEAR app on your phone

  • You may need to add additional information to verify it’s truly you or upload additional photos using the camera.
  • Once CLEAR accepts your identification and verifies your identity, choose a password for your CLEAR account.

add vaccination card to CLEAR app

  • To scan your QR code, you’ll need to capture it from another device (like a computer, iPad, or friend’s device) or scan a printout of it. 

verifying covid vaccine record in CLEAR app

The whole process took about ten minutes from start to finish and was extremely simple. I did not need to pay anything to sign up for the app.

CLEAR app’s Health Pass

You can also create and activate your  CLEAR Health Pass in the app that links your vaccination card, any negative tests, and other needed documents to give you access to a handful of approved venues. 

How to use CLEAR’s Health Pass

  • Open the Clear app and choose Health Pass .

CLEAR app Health Pass change venue or event for pass

  • This option remains grayed out if you have not reviewed and agreed to all the listed items in the checklist.

How to use the CLEAR Health app for travel, restaurants, and other venues  

Travel with Clear Health Pass app

For travelers 18 years and older, using CLEAR’s Health Pass app helps expedite the entry process via your incoming flight. You also are allowed to skip quarantine upon arrival.

Once you have uploaded a negative test or have linked your vaccination card to CLEAR (see steps above), you’ll be on your way to a quicker, safer entry into Hawai’i.

Be sure to complete this last additional step if entering Hawai’i. Connect your Health Pass to the Safe Travels Hawai’i profile before checking in at the airport.

As our world evolves and accommodates COVID-19 regulations, there will undoubtedly be more destinations that adopt the CLEAR Health App for a seamless, digital, and safe screening process.

Restaurants 

The popular OpenTable app has recently partnered with CLEAR to provide easy access to a digital vaccination card for establishments that request proof of vaccination to dine indoors.

The thought of being screened everywhere we go is a daunting scenario, but it may be a temporary necessity in the best interest of our global health. OpenTable and CLEAR make it easy.

How it works

Indoor dining proof of vaccination required via OpenTable

Click on that to be instantly linked to your CLEAR profile. This provides the restaurant with your Health Pass showing your digital vaccination card.

It’s a simple, efficient, and contactless way to show your necessary health documents. It won’t slow you down or kill your vibe when trying to get in the door for a table.

Sports and other venues

Within the CLEAR Health Pass app, you’ll be greeted not only with a travel tab (e.g., for partner airlines and approved destinations) but also options that include events and sports.

Sports venues using CLEAR app Health Pass

They have a handful of participating sports arenas, including my home team, the Seattle Seahawks, and the Sounders.

If you plan to attend a sporting (or other) event that partners with CLEAR, you can easily select your venue and see their specific entry requirements.

  • If they require proof of vaccination, great! Your digital vaccine card is already loaded and linked within the app.
  • If they require an additional negative COVID-19 test, you can also pair your results within the app and have that available digitally.

With each event you plan to attend, you’ll have to attest that you are aware of their requirements. Once you do, you’ll be granted a unique “green” health pass specific to that event.

Your picture displays with a unique QR code. Additionally, a countdown at the bottom is also shown. This eventually expires if not used.

Each time you create a green Health Pass for a different venue or travel encounter, the app asks to scan your face as part of its biometric identification. This is to confirm that it’s you accessing your account.

This confirms the level of security that CLEAR has promised from the beginning.

Visit the CLEAR website to learn about other ways to link your health information to the app.

If you’re a California, Louisiana, New York, Virginia, Hawaii, or some Maryland counties resident, had your vaccine at a SMART Health Card supported system like Walmart, Sam’s Club, and CVS, or have used another provider listed on their website, there may be specific steps for you to follow when setting up your CLEAR Health Pass app.

Other in-app options offer more features within your CLEAR account, such as skipping lines at certain sports and event venues. 

There’s also CLEAR Plus which offers access the CLEAR’s airport security skip-the-line access. Since I don’t travel all the time, I’m more than satisfied with being one of their “free members.”

Alternative apps for your covid vaccine and other health information

To date, there are a handful of other apps (besides CLEAR) where you can store your health information. More recently, this includes your COVID-19 vaccine card.

Earlier this year, Europe introduced its Green Health Pass. This became their widespread, go-to app for storing and displaying vaccination status.

The U.S. has yet to designate a single app or company as the primary interface for storing digital vaccine cards, but here is a list of apps gaining popularity.

CommonPass (CommonHealth for Android):

Health App commonness

CommonPass is a free and easy app for presenting verifiable proof of your vaccination status or COVID-19 test results.

If you are vaccinated or are tested through a compatible vaccine administrator or test site, you can link your vaccination status or test results straight into CommonPass with a QR code. This code must be provided to you from that approved administrator or test site.

As of September 2021, you can use CommonPass for travel on United, Hawaiian Airlines, Lufthansa, and Jetblue. The app is constantly working on expanding its network of approved providers and travel destinations, so stay tuned for regular app upgrades.

VeriFly started as a simple app for displaying COVID-19 test results needed for travel purposes. It has since added the ability to store and show your proof of vaccination for specific airlines.

Use VeriFly with American Airlines, Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia, and Japan Airlines.

Other apps such as VaxYes and Airside work very similarly to CLEAR but at a slightly lower level of security. CLEAR’s additional photo identification requirement has made it the leader of the pack and more widely accepted among businesses, venues, and airlines.

Adding your covid vaccine information straight to your phone

If you’d prefer to forego downloading an additional app to your phone, you may be able to save your digital covid vaccination straight to your Samsung Galaxy, Android, or iPhone .

For many of us, it’s a good option to leave our paper vaccine cards at home and use our phones instead, especially as more and more places and events require proof of vaccinations!

How to add your COVID-19 vaccination status to your Samsung Galaxy smartphone

Samsung has partnered with The Commons Project (creator of CommonPass/CommonHealth) to authenticate and upload your vaccination information (from an approved pharmacy or healthcare provider) into the Samsung Pay app.

Once the uploading process is authenticated, you get a unique QR code. This code can be used for various work, travel, and leisure purposes.

If this option interests you, keep your eye out for additional healthcare providers that get added to their approved list. As it stands, Samsung claims that this service is already accessible to millions of Galaxy smartphone consumers.

  • Download the CommonHealth app.
  • Follow the prompts to access your COVID-19 vaccination record.
  • Once it has been authenticated and approved, click Add to Samsung Pay .
  • Once you open Samsung Pay, find the  COVID-19 Vaccine pass  button and tap on the QR code symbol next to it.
  • Swipe up to the Samsung Pay tab from your phone’s home screen, and your digital vaccine record is a card in its carousel. Tap on the Use card button to show your vaccine record.

How to add your COVID-19 vaccination status to your Android smartphone

  • Using your Android phone, visit your vaccine provider’s website, app, email, or text. If you don’t have that info, reach out to the provider and see if they offer a way to view your vaccine status or certificate digitally.

Save to phone for covid vaccine to Android

  • If you’re asked to save with Chrome or Google Pay, choose Google Pay (even if you don’t have the Google Pay app on your device.)
  • You may need to set a lock screen on your phone for added security and to help protect your personal information.
  • You are asked if you want to add an icon to your home screen. Create this shortcut for quick and easy access to your COVID vaccine information.
  • If you want to access your COVID card on multiple devices, repeat these steps on each device.

How to add your COVID-19 vaccination status to the iPhone’s Health app

If you are an iPhone user, you have a few different options for storing your vaccination card in a digital format. See this article for more details and step-step instructions:  How to add your digital vaccine record to the Wallet or Health app on iPhone and Apple Watch .

If you receive your vaccination from a pharmacy or directly from your provider, ask if they can provide a secure QR code as part of your record. 

button that works with Apple Health app

Of course, not all providers or healthcare facilities are fully integrated for this yet. My own PCP’s office is not an approved option within the app to date, but the much larger medical center that I work for is.

With iOS 15, Apple’s Health app makes it even easier to upload and store vaccination records, including COVID-19.

Connect your health provider and add your COVID-19 vaccination to Apple’s Health app

  • Open your Health app.

Browse tab in Apple Health app for iPhone

  • You can search by name, network, or even your health provider’s location.

Apple Health records search

  • Enter your username and password for your health provider (or sign up if you don’t have an account) and follow the prompts to finish setting this up.

Want another option to store your COVID vaccine records?

A less secure option is simply taking  a picture of your CDC card and saving it to your photos . Add your image to your Hidden albums to add an extra layer of protection.

This is located at the bottom of all other albums in the Photos app. It only displays when you want it to.

Though this isn’t ideal, and I wouldn’t recommend this be your only backup, it’s still an excellent option to have a copy of this info if something happens to your physical card.

A third and slightly more secure option is to scan your card into your Notes app .

  • Open the Notes app and create a new note.
  • Tap the camera button and select Scan Documents.
  • Snap a picture of your CDC card and tap Save .
  • Tap the three dots in the upper right corner and choose Lock.

You’ll be asked to provide a password, verify it, and give a password hint. If you want, you can also enable face or touch ID.

Take-Aways from using CLEAR’s Health Pass app (or others)

COVID-19 has made it necessary to show additional health information in a way that we’ve never had to before. It makes perfect sense to take advantage of all the available health technology in today’s world.

CLEAR’s Health Pass app is an excellent option for storing and displaying necessary medical documentation for work, travel, and leisure. There are various other apps if you’re looking to find a way to keep your vaccination card digitally.

Regardless of which option you choose, having a secure digital copy of these important records prevents the unwanted event of a lost card.

So if you want a more accessible, contactless way to display any health records or testing results, download an app and prepare to get digital.

  • CLEAR offers fast, touchless entry at over 50 airports, stadiums, and arenas in the US.
  • It takes minutes to enroll and seconds to use, scanning eyes or fingerprints to safely gain entry.
  • We tried it out during recent air travel to see how it works and compares to TSA Precheck.

Insider Today

Stressful at its worst and mind-numbing at its best, waiting in an airport security line is an experience no one enjoys. No amount of mental willpower or foot-tapping will let you out of the process, but there is a biometric security service called CLEAR that can make it a lot faster.

CLEAR is a friction-free security process at airports, stadiums, and arenas that scans your eyes or fingerprints so you can reach the place you really want to be — the flight gate, concert, or game — quickly and conveniently. 

Just like safety and security are valued at airports and large venues, CLEAR values customer security and ensures member data is kept private and secure through double encryption. This way, you have the peace of mind that your data is safe, all while you enjoy the benefits of an effortless security process. 

Learn more about how  CLEAR works below, plus our review of the service, and deals on signing up.

When you travel and go through airport security, the first checkpoint involves standing in a long line for a TSA agent to scan your boarding pass and ID.

With CLEAR , you skip the line and enter security through your own designated lane where you check-in and are escorted directly to the physical screening. 

Instead of using traditional ID documents, CLEAR uses your eyes and face to confirm it's really you. This is done by transforming your biometrics into an encrypted code of ones and zeros that are unique to you. 

The platform is Department of Homeland Security- and SAFETY Act-certified.

clear health travel

To use CLEAR, you'll first enroll by filling out a short online application . It takes just a few moments.

Then, you'll visit a participating airport  to get your eyes and fingerprints scanned. Bring one of the following forms of photo identification with you: 

  • US Driver's License
  • US Passport
  • US Passport Card
  • US-issued Permanent Resident Card
  • State Issued ID
  • US Military ID

All forms of identification must be valid, unexpired, not amended, and have a photo. This process takes about five minutes in total. 

You don't have to go out of your way to do this. Most people enroll in person at the same time they are flying out. That's because once in-person registration is complete, you can use the CLEAR lane right away. 

clear health travel

Once you're enrolled and in the designated lane, all you have to do is scan your fingers or eyes at the kiosk to get your identity verified. It takes just seconds.

This means no fumbling for documents or IDs and waiting in a line that seems to loop and turn with no end in sight. 

Once you're done, a CLEAR attendant will escort you to the front of the regular security line where you'll wait your turn to put your belongings through the X-ray scanner and finish the screening process.

Though the two might sound like they're interchangeable, CLEAR isn't a substitute for TSA PreCheck. Here are some key differences:

  • TSA PreCheck expedites the security process by putting you in a shorter line to get your documents checked and allows you to keep your shoes, laptops, liquids, belts, and jackets on you. Meanwhile, CLEAR expedites the general security process by letting you bypass the first line for document verification altogether with the biometric screening. If you have TSA PreCheck, you'll move on to the physical screening and still enjoy the benefits of PreCheck. If not, you will be physically screened per the standard rules. In other words, CLEAR members don't have a separate second screening like PreCheck members do, unless they have a membership with both.
  • TSA PreCheck members can get randomly excluded and sent to the regular line. CLEAR does not have random exclusions.
  • TSA PreCheck only works with certain airlines, though it's available in many more airports nationwide. CLEAR works with any airline, but its rollout in airports is still limited. CLEAR is also available at some sports stadiums. 
  • To enroll in TSA PreCheck, you submit an online application and schedule an in-person appointment at an enrollment center. The appointment includes a background check and fingerprinting. To enroll in CLEAR, you submit an online application and visit an airport location where you undergo a background check and fingerprinting. No appointment is necessary and it's much quicker overall. 

CLEAR itself is an attractive option for travel during COVID-19 as it removes waiting in a lengthy general airport security line with no social distancing.

It also facilitates travel during the pandemic with the option to use Health Pass, a free feature on the CLEAR app for members who are 18 and over that connects your verified identity with your health history to create a digital vaccine card. This then syncs with Health Pass to show proof of vaccination for venues and countries that require it.

It may be used in some places to avoid mandatory quarantine, such as Hawaii .

I tried CLEAR this summer when I flew cross country on more than one occasion. The cost was comped by the company for review purposes. 

I signed up online in minutes, per the directions, and added my husband to my family account. Because my infant daughter was well under 18, I did not need to make an account for her.

When I arrived at San Francisco Airport for a 7 a.m. return flight to New York City, despite the early arrival, the security line was already incredibly long. I was thankful to zip past it to a separate area designated for CLEAR with a handful kiosks for checking-in.

Because this was my first time using CLEAR, I needed to finish my enrollment. The company says this should only take five minutes, though mine took at least 10 to 15. Part of this was because we were juggling a baby, but a CLEAR attendant was also required to shepherd us through the process and ours was quite busy helping multiple travelers at once.

All I needed to do, though, was look up my personal information, scan my fingertips and retina, and that was about it.

clear health travel

Once checked in, the attendant printed my boarding pass and I had to wait for a few other guests to finish the process so he could bring us all to the next step in the security screening process. 

My husband, however, who had TSA PreCheck, was guided to a separate line for travelers with the distinction. I went to the security line for general travelers, and while I was able to skip to the front to have my ID checked, I had to wait in a long line to go through the X-ray scanner. CLEAR did not grant privileges to cut it and I had to remove my iPad.

When I flew again a month later, departing from Hartford, Connecticut, I was excited to see if CLEAR would be faster in a smaller airport. Unfortunately, it was not offered there and I waited in the general line from start to finish.

As a former TSA PreCheck holder, I couldn't help but compare the two. When looking at TSA PreCheck vs CLEAR, the differences are, well, quite clear.

TSA PreCheck is cheaper at $85 for five years, whereas CLEAR costs $179 for one year. It's worth noting though that CLEAR is offered at additional venues beyond airports, and if you frequent many sports games or concerts where it is offered, you'll certainly appreciate the shorter line. 

TSA PreCheck also often sees fewer lines overall. It's more widely available whereas CLEAR is limited to a handful of airports. If CLEAR is not offered in your home airport, it's probably not worth it.

However, enrolling in CLEAR is so much easier. Part of the reason why my TSA PreCheck lapsed is that it feels like such a hassle to make an appointment to sign up, which usually takes place in out-of-the-way locations and requires fingerprinting.

Signing up for CLEAR on the other hand takes just a few moments and you can do it on the way to your flight from your mobile device. You can still cut to the front of the first security line, and if the X-ray scanner isn't backed up, it's a great way to speed up travel through an airport terminal.

Choosing which one is best really depends on the types of venues you visit most often and whether CLEAR is offered in the airport from where you're most likely to depart.

If you travel frequently out of CLEAR's participating airports and want to save yourself time and anxiety, CLEAR is a worthwhile investment to consider. And with the following two deals, it's well worth trying out to see if it's a good fit for your needs.

Press Releases

State of hawaii and clear expand safe travels health pass partnership to cover all vaccinated travelers, clear's health pass now includes new proof of vaccination with cdc card upload.

NEW YORK, July 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --    Today, the State of Hawaii and CLEAR (NYSE: YOU) announced that they have expanded their Health Pass partnership to include "CDC card upload" for proof of vaccination through the Hawaii Safe Travels program. With this latest announcement, CLEAR's Health Pass can now be used by all fully vaccinated adults in the United States traveling on any airline from any mainland airport to Hawaii. This is the third expansion of the State of Hawaii's partnership with CLEAR and its Health Pass technology - continuing to make it safer and easier to travel to Hawaii without being subjected to a 10-day quarantine.

Using the free CLEAR mobile app and Health Pass feature, travelers can now directly add their Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 vaccination card to their Health Pass. Once enrolled, travelers simply take a photo of their CDC card and upload their vaccination information. Additionally, travelers can also securely link to their digital proof of vaccination through CLEAR's network of hundreds of vaccine providers and national pharmacies, including Walmart, Atlantic Health System and the State of California.

"We are happy to announce another expansion to CLEAR's partnership with the State of Hawaii. Adding a CDC card upload to the Safe Travels program means even more Americans can travel safely and securely to the Aloha State," said Caryn Seidman-Becker, CEO of CLEAR.

Once the Health Pass is created, travelers will then go to the Hawaii Safe Travels website to apply for quarantine exemption by linking to their CLEAR Health Pass. Upon arrival, travelers using CLEAR's Health Pass for proof of vaccination and who receive a wristband can bypass screening and head directly to the exit with no further processing.

In February, CLEAR initially partnered with the State of Hawaii on a pilot program featuring Health Pass on select direct flights between LAX and Honolulu on United Airlines and Delta Air Lines. Earlier this month , Hawaii and CLEAR partnered to expand the use of Health Pass for COVID-19 test screening and vaccine verification of all Hawaii-bound travelers through the Hawaii Safe Travels program.

Traveling to Hawaii Just Got Easier Thanks to Clear — Here's How to Verify Your Test Results or Vaccination Status

All travelers over 18 years old from any mainland U.S. airport can use Clear's app to verify their COVID-19-related paperwork and participate in Hawaii's Safe Travels program.

clear health travel

All travelers heading to Hawaii can now use Clear's Health Pass to verify their vaccination status or pre-arrival testing results, the biometric security company shared with Travel + Leisure .

Starting Friday, all travelers over 18 years old bound for the Aloha state from any mainland U.S. airport can use Clear's app to verify their COVID-19-related paperwork and participate in Hawaii's Safe Travels program. The free app is capable of linking to vaccination records, including shots administered in several pharmacies, as well as test results.

The initiative is an expansion of a pilot earlier this year in which Clear partnered with Hawaii to use its Health Pass on direct flights between Los Angeles and Honolulu on United Airlines and Delta Air Lines, according to the company.

"Clear's mission is to provide people with safe and frictionless experiences, and with this new expansion, showing proof of vaccination and enjoying the Aloha state just got much easier," Caryn Seidman-Becker, the company's CEO, said in a statement provided to T+L.

Currently, travelers heading to Hawaii are required to either show proof they are fully vaccinated or provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test from a "trusted partner" site in order to skip quarantine measures.

To use the pass, customers must link their vaccination records or test results in the app and then connect that to the Hawaii Safe Travels website.

"Safe travel is important for our residents and visitors, and Clear offers travelers an additional convenient and secure option for providing vaccination and pre-travel testing verification for those returning home or coming to Hawaii for work or vacation," Gov. David Ige said in the statement.

Hawaii has been seeing a travel boom in recent months. In May, more than 629,000 visitors flew to the state, the Hawaii Tourism Authority shared with T+L, only 25.7% less than May 2019 when just over 847,000 visitors arrived, including both air and cruise passengers.

Hawaii streamlines travel entry with CLEAR Health Pass

  • Oops! Something went wrong. Please try again later. More content below

Jul. 10—The state has expanded its partnership with CLEAR Health Pass to provide COVID-19 test screening and vaccine verification of all Hawaii-bound travelers from every U.S. mainland airport on any airline.

Gov. David Ige also announced that the Philippines and Korea will be added Thursday to the list of international destinations that are allowed to seek a COVID-19 testing exemption so that they do not have to quarantine for 10 days upon arrival in Hawaii.

The state will accept only specific tests that are conducted by one of the state's trusted testing partners. Tests must be taken no earlier than 72 hours prior to departing for the last leg of the trip to Hawaii, and the negative result must be uploaded prior to departure. For more information, visit.

On Thursday, Hawaii began allowing domestic travelers who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 to seek a vaccination exemption.

COVID vaccination exemptions still aren't allowed for international travelers. Testing also is required for those age 5 and above who are not vaccinated and wish to bypass Hawaii's travel quarantine.

Any passengers on any commercial flight from the mainland, who are over the age of 18, who download the CLEAR app and correctly follow the directions can use Health Pass. CLEAR touts Health Pass as a "free, mobile experience by CLEAR, which securely connects a person's verified identity to multiple layers of COVID-19 related insights, including proof of vaccination, to reduce public health risk."

Here's how it works : Travelers will add their negative COVID-19 test result or vaccine verification to the free CLEAR mobile app clearme.com /hawaii to generate a Health Pass. Then they can apply for a quarantine exception on the Hawaii Safe Travels website by linking their CLEAR Health Pass. The secure process may be done over a smartphone.

Employees of airlines participating in pre-clearance programs will scan a passenger's HI QR code prior to the flight to Hawaii to ensure that all entry requirements are satisfied. Depending on the airline, travelers might receive a wristband to help expedite arrival procedures in Hawaii. If a particular airline does not provide pre-clearance service prior to departure, travelers will be screened upon arrival in Hawaii.

"Safe travel is important for our residents and visitors, and CLEAR offers travelers an additional convenient and secure option for providing vaccination and pre-travel testing verification for those returning home or coming to Hawaii for work or vacation, " Ige said in a statement.

CLEAR's Health Pass links vaccination results from hundreds of vaccine providers and national pharmacies, including Walmart, Atlantic Health System and the state of California. Travelers from California, which supplies more than 40 % of Hawaii's passenger traffic, may upload their vaccine information to Health Pass by scanning their California's Immunization Registry ­-generated QR code.

The CLEAR Health Pass is integrated with select health care providers and pharmacies. If CLEAR is not integrated with a traveler's vaccine provider, it is recommended that they upload a photo of their CDC card directly into the Hawaii Safe Travels portal.

The partnership between CLEAR and the state is an outgrowth of an earlier pilot program. In February, CLEAR initially partnered with the state to test using Health Pass on direct flights between Los Angeles International Airport and Honolulu on United Airlines and Delta Air Lines.

"We are excited to expand our partnership with Hawaii and its Safe Travels program, " CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker said in a statement.

"CLEAR's mission is to provide people with safe and friction-less experiences, and with this new expansion, showing proof of vaccination and enjoying the Aloha State just got much easier."

Airlines around the world will likely roll out their own document-verification tools, like the "Travel-Ready Center" now available in United's mobile app , but third-party applications may also work their way into the mix, such as Clear's and its integrated Health Pass feature .

Unlike Clear's expedited security screening , which carries an annual fee, the company's app is available free of charge, making it accessible to anyone with a mobile device.

Health Pass is already being used to verify negative tests where required for select sports arenas, and soon the technology will be used to approve tourists for quarantine-free travel to Hawaii.

Beginning next Thursday, Feb. 18, Delta and United flyers traveling nonstop from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Honolulu (HNL) will be able to securely link their test results and verify their identity, making it easy for Hawaii to identify travelers approved to avoid the state's otherwise-mandatory 10-day quarantine .

Travelers choosing to use the platform will be able to select an approved test , including labs and at-home options. From there, they'll login to their testing account, and results will be linked to the app.

At boarding, Clear employees will scan the traveler's Hawaii QR code, along with their Health Pass, and provide them with a wristband that they can then display to airport personnel upon arrival.

During the initial pilot program, Health Pass will only be available on Delta and United flights between LAX and HNL, though it could certainly roll out to other carriers and routes in the near future.

Saves me a lot of time and keeps things clean

I don’t fly very frequently, but when I do, I love using Clear. Recently got it for my wife as well and it’s just $50 to add a family member. We are always a bit late on getting to the airport, maybe not even late, but we like to be confident we make the gate on time. It really saved me a good chunk of rebooking money as we were late to the gate originally and the security lane was just out of control due to limited number of workers at the domestic erminal at SFO. I quickly added my wife to my Clear account (4 min) and we made it to the gate in 3 more minutes using Clear. That day we saved at least $300 on rebooking fees and it gave us a peace of mind. I like the mobile app and now I know when to leave home if I’m using Clear. They have a home to gate ETA feature, really helpful in planning on when to drive to the airport. I won’t lie, that sense of a VIP status going through Clear, makes me feel good and important on top of saved time. Plus all the agents are super nice.

Would be nice if it worked/ Multiple attempts to set up have failed

Update: I have again attempted to set up an account with the new updates, but still have no success. Extremely frustrating that even the newest update has not fixed whatever issues the app has been having. I’ve spoken with others that are upset with the set up as well, they too have tried multiple times to set up an account, but to no success either. It has to do with the picture of the face portion. After my initial review I received an email to “Please, please, please” contact them. I contacted them but have heard nothing back. Really upsetting. I might just be selling my single game tickets to the highest bidder and tailgating during games. Unfortunate. Also, the amount of tracking the app does is absolutely horrendous. Why does it need to know all of that info for me to watch a game…from a third party that I didn’t pay for the PSL/tickets? Do better Clear. Original post: I am PSL season ticket holder to the Raiders. We have to use this system to verify you have the vaccine. Problem is, registration doesn’t work because it won’t capture a your face to verify it against a passport or ID photo. Too bad. Now I have to go through a separate line and verify my hard copy vaccine paper. Terrible system. Which there was not a monopoly on one system, and they would allow for multiple ones. Maybe another one would actually work. If I could rate zero I would.

Developer Response ,

Hi there! I'm sorry to hear you're having some trouble enrolling in Health Pass in preparation for the Raiders' season. Would you please be able to please reach out to our team to take a look? Please send an email to [email protected]

App doesn’t work, horrible customer service

A concert I recently attended required proof of covid vaccination status. Attendees could bring their actual cards or could use the Clear digital vaccine card. I downloaded the app on 10/4, 8 days before the concert and tried to create my digital vaccine card. It didn’t work at all. The process failed after all my information was entered. I contacted customer service via text (the only option they give you) and didn’t hear back for an entire day. When I finally got the return text on 10/5 I was at work and couldn’t answer right then. I was told to delete and reinstall the app, which I did, to no avail. I contacted them again but could not get through to someone until 10/16, THIRTEEN days after my initial inquiry. In the mean time. I would get texts asking for my name, email and birthdate, which I provided, but then I was asked for this information again and again. I also had to keep explaining what the problem was, but they kept ghosting me. The customer service was AWFUL. Like literally the worst I have ever experienced! When I finally did get through to someone, just today on 10/16, I tried all the things asked if me and the answer was just “huh, it doesn’t work”. So this app doesn’t work at all and the customer service is abysmal.
