TSA Pre-check application center temporarily opening at Mitchell Airport
In response to the strong demand from travelers interested in enrolling in TSA Pre?®, a temporary application center will be open at General Mitchell International Airport from Monday, May 8 through Friday, May 12.
The TSA Pre?® temporary application center will be open Monday-Wednesday from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM and 3:00 PM – 7:00 PM. On Thursday and Friday, the hours are 7:00 AM – 11:00 AM and 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM. The temporary enrollment center is located next to the Center Skybridge, behind the Harley Davidson store.
Travelers who are enrolled in TSA Pre?® or another trusted traveler program such as Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Global Entry, SENTRI or NEXUS are permitted to keep on their shoes, belts and light outerwear jacket, and can leave their laptops and liquid 3-1-1 bags inside their carry-on bags when transiting the checkpoint.
“This is a great opportunity for Milwaukee-area travelers to enroll in TSA’s popular expedited screening program,” said TSA Wisconsin Federal Security Director Mark Lendvay. “Travelers can make an appointment online by visiting the TSA Pre?® page on tsa.gov, and then must complete their enrollment in-person at the application center. There is also a permanent application center in Milwaukee.”
The application fee is $85, which covers a five-year membership. The fee must be paid at the application 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. Fingerprints are collected to complete a background check.
Successful applicants will receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN), which they can access online in about a week. Passengers should enter the KTN when booking airline reservations online via a participating airline website, via phone call to the airline reservation center, or with the travel management company making reservations.
