Local travelers can make an appointment for TSA Precheck enrollment online at identogo.com/precheck by selecting Montgomery from the drop-down menu and then completing their enrollment in-person at the TSA Precheck application center. The application fee is $85 and is good for five years. It can be paid at the time of the appointment by credit card, money order, company check, or certified/cashier’s check. Cash and personal checks are not accepted. Enrollees will need to bring documentation proving identity and citizenship status, and fingerprints are collected during the in-person enrollment session.
More than 200 airports are participating in TSA Precheck nationwide and more than 70 airlines participate in the program including American, Delta and United.
Travelers who are enrolled in TSA Precheck or one of the other “trusted traveler” programs such as Global Entry, SENTRI or NEXUS are permitted to keep on their shoes, belts and light outerwear jacket, and they can leave their laptops and liquid 3-1-1 bags inside their carry-on bags when they go through a checkpoint while the program is being run. Wait times are typically five minutes or less.
