More than two million travelers are now enrolled in the Transportation Security Administration's TSA Pre✓® program, MorphoTrust USA (Safran) announced today. MorphoTrust, a leading provider of identity services and solutions, is a trusted partner of TSA and is currently the sole enrollment services provider for TSA Pre✓®. IdentoGO® Centers by MorphoTrust continues to ramp up its efforts to meet the growing demand for enrollment in TSA Pre✓® and are now processing nearly 50 percent more applications every day, compared to earlier in 2015.
Today, IdentoGO Centers enroll thousands of people each day in a growing network of more than 355 locations that service TSA Pre✓® applicants. MorphoTrust has made it easier for customers to apply for the popular travel program by expanding the number and hours of operations of our centers, launching a mobile enrollment program for businesses and other organizations, and through partnerships such as H&R Block to provide enrollment services at a growing number of retail locations.
"TSA's Pre✓® program has proven to be a true win-win with enhanced security for the entire air travel system and convenience for the traveling public," said Charles Carroll, senior vice president of identity services at MorphoTrust. "Working closely with our partners at TSA, we will continue to help expand this program and make convenient, hassle-free travel a reality for millions more Americans."
TSA Pre✓® is an expedited security screening program that connects travelers departing from more than 150 U.S. airports with smarter security and a more convenient travel experience. TSA Pre✓® travelers do not need to remove shoes, laptops, liquids, belts or light jackets at security checkpoints. TSA Pre✓® helps take the stress out of travel for more than 2 million travelers who have enrolled in the TSA Pre✓® program.
Passengers interested in enrolling in TSA Pre✓® are encouraged to begin the application process by pre-enrolling online and then making an appointment at a local center. Upon arrival, trained agents verify approved identity documents (a birth certificate or passport and another government issued ID) and obtain biographic information before live-scanning applicants' fingerprints and securely transmitting the application package to TSA for review. The agency completes the application vetting process and issues a Known Traveler Number (KTN) via mail once the application is approved. An applicant can check the status online by visiting universalenroll.dhs.gov/ and clicking on "Check Status." Applicants pay an $85 processing fee, which covers five years of access to TSA Pre✓®. The entire application process takes just a few weeks to complete.
