EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE — Do you hate waiting in lines when you go through security at the airport? Consider attending an upcoming pop-up enrollment for TSA PreCheck.
The Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS) announced that IDEMIA, a TSA enrollment service provider, will have a mobile enrollment station set up on the second curb just outside the terminal. Starting next month, there will be two opportunities to apply for TSA PreCheck.
Here is what we know.
What is TSA PreCheck?
TSA PreCheck expedites the screening process at more than 200 airports across the United States and Nassau, The Bahamas. For all TSA PreCheck travelers, there is no need to remove shoes, 3-1-1 liquids, laptops, light outerwear or belts.
According to the TSA, about 99% of PreCheck passengers wait less than 10 minutes going through security.
How do I enroll?
The enrollment process involves filling out a form, which can be completed online before the event. All applicants must bring a U.S. passport, certified birth certificate and a government-issued photo ID. Fingerprints will be taken on-site.
Once you complete the information on the website, you must select your desired appointment time.
The application fee is $78 and can be paid by credit card, money order, company check or certified/cashier’s check. Cash and personal checks will not be accepted.
When is the event?
There will be two week-long periods next month. The first enrollment period is from Monday, Nov. 13 through Friday, Nov. 17. The second will be two weeks later, staring on Tuesday, Nov. 28 and going until Friday, Dec. 1.
