US passengers invited to enrol in TSA Pre✓ expedited screening programme at Oakland International Airport

Oakland International Airport is inviting passengers to enroll on-site in the popular TSA Pre✓ expedited screening programme during a temporary enrollment event in its Terminal 2 which ends on November 18.

The temporary enrollment event returns to Oakland International Airport (OAK) following positive customer response to similar enrollment events over the past year.

TSA Pre✓ has more than 450 lanes at over 160 US airports.

“Oakland International welcomes this opportunity to once again partner with TSA to provide such a valuable convenience for our customers,” said Bryant Francis, director of aviation at the Port of Oakland. 

“We recognise that there are travellers living throughout the Bay Area who repeatedly choose OAK for their air travel needs and may benefit from the convenience of expedited screening.

"The success of this temporary enrollment event in the past has resulted in this new opportunity, and we encourage participation from ticketed customers already planning to be in the Airport during the event as well as others who simply find it easier to come to OAK to enroll.”

"TSA PreCheck is a win-win option for travelers, airlines, and TSA," enthused David von Damm, the TSA's federal security director at Oakland International Airport.

"The benefits of TSA PreCheck continue to expand with additional airlines participating and more airports adding dedicated TSA PreCheck lanes.

"Increasing the number of enrollments in TSA PreCheck is the first step to ensuring the smoothest and most efficient screening experience for as many passengers as possible."

TSA Pre✓is an expedited screening programme that enables identified low-risk air travelers to enjoy a smart and more efficient screening experience.

For participants in the programme, there is no need to remove shoes, 3-1-1 liquids, laptops are able to remain in their cases, and light outerwear and belts can remain on.

The airport claims that applying for TSA Pre✓ through this local enrollment event is easy.  

Applicants are encouraged to Pre-Enroll by visiting the enrollment website: www.identogo.com/locations/tsa-pre.

And to complete the application process, enrollees will need to bring proof of identity and US citizen documentation (such as a US Passport or a birth certificate with valid driver license).

The application process is completed on site where TSA agents collect fingerprints for a background check and the $85 application for five years of service.  

The fee can be paid by credit card, money order, company check, or certified/cashier's check. Cash and personal checks are not accepted.
