Jackson–Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport launches first-of-its kind TSA PreCheck® enrollment for departing travelers from March 17, 2022, through March 28, 2022.

IDEMIA is excited to bring convenient TSA PreCheck enrollment to travelers. Taking 5 minutes or less, and with no appointment needed, this special program for departing travelers allows them to enroll in (or sign up for) TSA PreCheck at the airport as they fly out on their next trip. Once approved, they can then enjoy a smoother screening process at airport security. Look for our TSA PreCheck Ambassadors, and make sure you bring your photo ID and proof of citizenship (i.e., passport, birth certificate) or proof of lawful permanent residency. For extra speed and convenience, complete the online application before your trip.

What is TSA PreCheck?

The TSA PreCheck program was created in December 2011 as a way to provide low-risk travelers with a smoother experience at the airport security passenger checkpoint. The program is open to U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents, as well as members participating in Trusted Traveler Programs like Global Entry, NEXUS and SENTRI. The TSA PreCheck program is a great option for frequent travelers looking to save time during the airport security process. Enrolled members can travel with ease with no need to remove shoes, laptops, 3-1-1 liquids, belts or light jackets.  They can also access dedicated screening lanes at participating U.S. airports.

What is Jackson–Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport (JAN) offering to Travelers?

JAN is the first location to offer the new TSA PreCheck In-Journey Enrollment Program.

  • Start Date: Thursday March 17, 2022
  • End Date: Monday March 28, 2022

Most travelers can be approved and receive their Known Traveler Number (KTN) within 3-5 days to use by their next trip.

What to Expect During the TSA PreCheck Application Process

The enrollment process is simple. You apply online, where you provide your name, date of birth, and passport number (or other form of identification). The next step is to make an appointment to appear in person and provide fingerprints and a digital photograph—but for the duration of this event (March 17-28) this can be done as you are departing Jackson–Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport. No appointment needed! There is an $85 enrollment application fee, which covers five years of participation, if approved.
