TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Getting through Tucson International Airport is about to get faster for some travelers.

Today the Trusted Traveler Global Enrollment Center will open at TIA, this will streamline things for international flyers. It all kicks off with a ribbon cutting this afternoon.

What the enrollment center will be is a place for customs officers to do another step in getting international flyers approved under the 'trusted traveler status'. 

Trusted travelers are low risk flyers who get a type of clearance to move through security faster, and get to their flight faster. 

Anyone can apply online, but the center opening today is where the interviews happen.

The ribbon cutting is happening today at 2 p.m. and Mayor Jonathan Rothschild and other high ranking customs officials will be on hand for the ceremony.

To register for the trusted traveler program go online to - https://goes-app.cbp.dhs.gov/main/goes
