Passengers in Houston will now have convenient access to apply for the Transportation Security Administration Pre✓™, screening program when a new application center opens later this month at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) inside the Terminal C baggage claim area.
TSA Pre✓™ is an expedited screening program that allows travelers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case and keep 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels in a carry-on bag. The TSA Pre✓™ application process allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to go through a pre-enrollment process online at tsa.gov and visit an application center to provide biographic information (e.g. name, date of birth, address, etc.), fingerprints, valid required identity and citizenship/immigration documentation and an application fee of $85 for a five-year membership.
The airport provides a convenient location to apply to the program. The application center will be pre-security and does not require the applicant to be a ticketed passenger.
Once approved, eligible travelers will receive a Known Traveler Number and will have the opportunity to utilize TSA Pre✓™ lanes at security checkpoints at more than 160 airports nationwide and 13 airlines including Alaska Airlines, Allegiant Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue Airways, One Jet, Southwest Airlines, Sun Country, United Airlines, WestJet, Virgin America and Air Canada.
Passengers who are eligible for Global Entry Trusted Traveler Program membership will receive TSA Pre✓™with Global Entry membership.
