Dubuque Regional Airport to Host TSA PreCheck Enrollment Event

The Dubuque Regional Airport and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will host a week-long TSA PreCheck® enrollment event at the airport’s Capt. Robert L. Martin Terminal, 10965 Aviation Drive, from Monday, March 11, through Friday, March 15.

Appointment hours will be held each day from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Applicants do not need an airline ticket to access the enrollment center. TSA recommends that interested individuals pre-enroll and make an appointment online at www.Identogo.com/precheck. Walk-in appointments will be accepted as space and personnel are available. 

Travelers who are enrolled in TSA PreCheck® can participate in an expedited screening process at more than 200 airports across the United States. They are allowed to keep their shoes, belts, and light jackets on, and can leave their laptops and liquid 3-1-1 bags inside their carry-on when processing through an airport security checkpoint. 

The application fee is $78, which covers a five-year membership. The fee must be paid at the enrollment center by credit card, money order, company check, or certified/cashier’s check. Cash and personal checks are not accepted. Enrollees will need to bring documentation proving identity and citizenship or legal residency status. Documentation requirements are listed on the DHS trusted traveler comparison tool website. Fingerprints are collected to complete a background check. 

Successful applicants will receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN), which they can access online about a week after their application is processed. Passengers should enter the KTN when booking airline reservations via a participating airline website, via phone call to the airline reservation center, or with the travel management company making reservations.
