TSA PreCheck Enrollment at Tri-Cities Airport Through November 15

The temporary enrollment center will be open for interviews Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 AM-Noon and 1-5 PM; and Tuesday and Thursday from 9 AM-1 PM and 2-6 PM. The enrollment center will be located just inside the main entrance of the terminal.

TSA PreCheck is an expedited security screening program that allows passengers to not remove shoes, laptops, liquids, belts and light jackets. According to TSA, 93% of TSA PreCheck-approved passengers waited less than five minutes in September 2019.

“The closest TSA PreCheck enrollment centers to TRI are in Abingdon and Knoxville,” said Gene Cossey, Tri-Cities Airport Authority executive director. “We are glad we can help make travel for our passengers more convenient by offering the opportunity to sign up for TSA PreCheck. We are also pleased that TSA is offering TRI passengers full TSA PreCheck as of October 13.”

Individuals interested in TSA PreCheck, should submit an application online and schedule an appointment through www.tsa.gov/precheck. To complete the application process, individuals will need to bring documentation proving identity and citizenship status, such as a valid U.S. passport. The in-person appointment includes fingerprinting for a background check. The application fee for TSA PreCheck is $85 and can be paid by credit card, money order, company check, or certified/cashier’s check. Cash and personal checks are not accepted. TSA PreCheck membership is good for five years.

The “Pop-Up” enrollment center will only be available at the airport during the dates and times listed. Individuals unable to participate in the “Pop-Up” event can still sign up and make appointments at the centers in Abingdon, VA or Knoxville, TN.
