BILLERICA, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Travelers can now enroll in TSA Pre✓® at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX), Miami International Airport (MIA), Spokane International Airport (GEG), a second location at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), a third location at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and at 28 new off-airport IdentoGO® Centers by MorphoTrust that have opened in the last three months. MorphoTrust USA (Safran), a leading U.S. provider of identity solutions and services, announced the opening of the new locations today, bringing the total number of TSA Pre✓® enrollment centers nationwide to 331.
The TSA Pre✓® application program has enrolled over 800,000 travelers to date, with MorphoTrust handling enrollment and customer services under its Universal Enrollment Services (UES) contract with TSA. IdentoGO® Centers provide off-airport enrollment locations that offer U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (LPR) access to a number of identity-related services, such as the secure capture and transmission of electronic fingerprints.
“We’ve seen impressive growth in the number of Americans enrolling in TSA Pre✓® since the program rolled out for the general public nearly a year ago,” said Charles Carroll, MorphoTrust’s senior vice president for identity services. “This momentum shows that passengers really value the convenience and improved travel experience that comes with signing up. MorphoTrust is proud to partner with TSA in its effort to help make air travel easier and more secure for millions of Americans and LPRs.”
Those wishing to enroll in the TSA Pre✓® application program are encouraged to begin the process by pre-enrolling online and making an appointment at an enrollment center. At the enrollment center, trained agents obtain biographic information and verify approved identity documents before electronically capturing applicants’ fingerprints on a live-scan device that are then securely transmitted to TSA for review. The agency completes the application vetting process and issues a Known Traveler Number via mail pending application approval. An $85 processing fee is required and the entire enrollment process takes around two weeks to complete. The Known Traveler Number covers five years of TSA Pre✓® status.
