Providing access for identity-related services
IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity™, announced that travelers who have enrolled in the TSA PreCheck® expedited screening program and are approaching their five year expiration date can now renew online up to six months in advance of their membership expiration. To date, the program has over 7 million members.
TSA PreCheck® is an expedited screening program that enables low-risk travelers to enjoy a more convenient and efficient screening experience at more than 200 U.S. airports nationwide. In October 2018, 93% of TSA PreCheck® passengers waited less than 5 minutes, according to the TSA.
For TSA PreCheck® travelers, there is no need to remove shoes, 3-1-1 liquids, laptops, belts and light jackets. The cost is $85 for five years, or $17 per year. Those in the program receive a “Known Traveler Number” and have the opportunity to utilize TSA PreCheck® lanes at security checkpoints when traveling on any of the 56 participating airlines.
After five years, members of the program will have to renew to continue to enjoy the benefits of TSA PreCheck®. The renewal process is easy and most members can complete the process entirely online. Members can renew by visiting https://universalenroll.dhs.gov/programs/precheck.
The pace and scale by which the TSA PreCheck® program has grown in the last five years speaks to its value in streamlining the travel experience for enrollees. Travelers benefit from a worry-free travel experience—particularly during the busiest seasons including summer and the holidays. Our goal is to drive even more growth by exploring other types of enrollment locations and bringing a fast and easy online renewal option to travelers when their membership expires.
