Residents of Waco will be able to enroll in the Transportation Security Administration’s popular TSA PreCheck program at Waco Regional Airport Aug. 16-20.
The airport is a convenient location to sign up for the program that enables enrolled travelers to
“Travel with Ease” by experiencing an expedited security screening process. The “pop-up”
office will be located inside the lobby of the terminal building in the baggage claim area.
The application process allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to enroll directly
in TSA PreCheck – an expedited screening program that allows travelers to leave on their
shoes, light outerwear, and belt, keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant
liquids/gels bag in a carry-on, in select TSA airport checkpoint screening lanes. More than 200
airports participate in TSA PreCheck program nationwide.

enrollment event. Applicants must bring proof of identity and U.S. citizenship. This can either
be through a current U.S. passport, or driver’s license and a copy of their birth certificate. The
enrollment process must be completed in person at the enrollment location for the proper

The application fee is $85 and can be paid during the enrollment appointment with either a
credit card, money order, company check or certified/cashier’s check. Cash or personal checks
