TSA PreCheck Applicable Center open at Waco airport May 24-28

By City of Waco Public Information

Residents of Waco will be able to enroll in the Transportation Security Administration’s popular TSA PreCheck program at Waco Regional Airport May 24-28.

The airport is a convenient location to sign up for the program that enables enrolled people to travel with more ease through the expedited security screening process. The “pop-up” office will be inside the lobby of the terminal in the baggage claim area.

The application process allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to enroll directly in TSA PreCheck — an expedited screening program that allows travelers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear, and belt, keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on, in select TSA airport checkpoint screening lanes. More than 200 airports participate in TSA PreCheck program nationwide.

Visit TSA PreCheck | Transportation Security Administration website to register for the upcoming enrollment event.  Applicants must bring proof of identity and U.S. citizenship. This can either be through a current U.S. passport, or driver’s license and a copy of their birth certificate. The enrollment process must be completed in person at ACT for the proper paperwork and fingerprints to be collected.

The application fee is $85 and can be paid during the enrollment appointment with either a credit card, money order, company check or certified/cashier’s check. Cash or personal checks are not accepted.

Travelers can go to the Waco Regional Airport (7909 Karl May Dr., Waco, TX 76708) lobby of the terminal area at 9 a.m.-noon or 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, May 24-28.

After completing enrollment, successful applicants will receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN) via U.S. mail within two weeks and is valid for five years. The enrollee should enter the provided KTN in the “Known Traveler Number” field when booking airline reservations.  The KTN also can be added when booking reservations online via a participating airline website, via phone call to the airline reservation center, or with the travel management company.  Additionally, the KTN can be entered in participating airline frequent flyer profiles as well.
