MorphoTrust adds TSA enrolment locations

16/01/15

MorphoTrust has announced the opening of 33 new on- and off-airport locations for TSA Pre enrolment, including Phoenix, Miami, Spokane, Dallas/Fort Worth and Los Angeles.

Travellers can now enrol in TSA Pre at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX), Miami International Airport (MIA), Spokane International Airport (GEG), a second location at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), a third location at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and at 28 new off-airport IdentoGO Centers by MorphoTrust that have opened in the last three months.

The TSA Pre application programme has enrolled more than 800,000 travellers to date, with MorphoTrust handling enrolment and customer services under its Universal Enrollment Services (UES) contract with TSA. IdentoGO Centers provide off-airport enrolment locations that offer US citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (LPR) access to a number of identity-related services, such as the secure capture and transmission of electronic fingerprints.

“We’ve seen impressive growth in the number of Americans enrolling in TSA Pre since the programme rolled out for the general public nearly a year ago,” says Charles Carroll, MorphoTrust’s senior vice president for identity services. “This momentum shows that passengers really value the convenience and improved travel experience that comes with signing up. MorphoTrust is proud to partner with TSA in its effort to help make air travel easier and more secure for millions of Americans and LPRs.”

Those wishing to enrol in the TSA Pre application programme are encouraged to begin the process by pre-enrolling online and making an appointment at an enrolment centre. At the enrolment centre, trained agents obtain biographic information and verify approved identity documents before electronically capturing applicants’ fingerprints on a live-scan device that are then securely transmitted to TSA for review. The agency completes the application vetting process and issues a Known Traveler Number via mail pending application approval. A US$85 processing fee is required and the entire enrollment process takes around two weeks to complete. The Known Traveler Number covers five years of TSA Pre status.
