MorphoTrust Brings TSA Pre?™ Enrollment to More Travelers

BILLERICA, Mass. --(Business Wire)--

MorphoTrust USA (Safran), a leading U.S. provider of identity solutions and services, today announced the opening of several new centers for enrollment in the Transportation Security Administration's TSA Pre?™ program. Enrollment is now available at Palm Beach International Airport (PBI), San Francisco International Airport (SFO), Denver International Airport (DEN), as well as an off-airport IdentoGO® Center by MorphoTrust in Raleigh, N.C., bringing the total number of enrollment centers to 302.

MorphoTrust provides enrollment for TSA Pre?™, which now serves more than 486,000 registered passengers. IdentoGO Centers serve as off-airport enrollment locations and offer Americans access to a number of identity-related services, such as the secure capture and transmission of electronic fingerprints.

"The growing number of enrollment centers across the country illustrates the increasing number of Americans that are discovering the improved travel experience after signing up for TSA Pre?™," said Charles Carroll, MorphoTrust's senior vice president for identity services. "These travelers have expressed their satisfaction with the program and the ease of enrollment process, which costs less than many other convenience-based travel and tourism programs."

Travelers looking to enroll in the TSA Pre?™ program are encouraged to pre-enroll online to begin the application process and make an appointment at an enrollment center. Once at the center, trained agents collect biographic information and verify approved identity documents. Applicants' fingerprints are then electronically captured on a live-scan device and securely transmitted to TSA for review. The TSA then completes the applicant vetting process and, assuming that the application is approved, issues a Known Traveler Number, which is sent in the mail. An $85 application processing fee is required and the Known Traveler Number is good for five years. The entire process takes about two weeks to complete.
