Would you like to apply for a TSA Pre✓™, but are not quite sure how to get the ball rolling?
How to enroll in TSA Pre-Check
After spending numerous hours in airport security lines this year, I’ve decided Pre✓™ is the way to go. To enroll, you must first visit a TSA Pre✓™ application center. You can do this in one of two ways:
- Pre-enroll online and make an appointment to visit an application center.
- Visit any application center as a walk-in.
Be sure to bring the required documents, which are outlined on TSA.gov, and $85.
After applying, approved applicants will receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN) in approximately two to three weeks. This KTN will then need to be input by your travel agent into each reservation. You can find more information about the application and enrollment process here.
What does Pre✓™ mean for you? Faster lines in a dedicated screening line at airport security and no removal of belts, shoes, jackets, or laptops!
