Breeze Thru Security At These Upcoming Airport Events
TSA PreCheck Enrollment on September 6th-15th
Over 500 people stopped by the temporary enrollment center at the airport last month to enroll in the TSA PreCheck program! This was so successful that the event is back September 6th-15th. From 8:00am-noon and 1:00pm to 5:00pm each weekday, you can make an appointment to stop by and become part of the program, which allows for expedited processing through security checkpoints at most US airports. The cost is $85.00 and enrollment is good for 5 years. To start the enrollment process and make an appointment go to www.identogo.com/precheck.
Global Entry Private Enrollment September 26th and 27th
The airport is also hosting a private enrollment event for the Global Entry program September 26th and 27th. Global Entry is maintained by the Customs and Border Protection agency and allows expedited clearance for pre-approved travelers when arriving in the US. In addition, global entry cardholders have PreCheck privileges when traveling domestically. The cost for this program is $100.00 and is good for 5 years. For instructions on how to apply go to: https://www.cbp.gov/travel/trusted-traveler-programs/global-entry/how-apply. When you are ready to create an account, make a payment, and apply for a Global Entry card, go to: https://goes-app.cbp.dhs.gov/goes/jsp/login.jsp. When scheduling an appointment look for the site name “LRAA-Private Event.” Interviews can be scheduled each day from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm and take approximately 15 minutes.
The processing and background checks take 2-3 weeks. If you are interested, start the process as soon as possible. This is a great opportunity to sign up for the program. Normally it takes several weeks for the processing and background to take place before an interview can be scheduled at the nearest enrollment centers to Louisville, which are at the Cincinnati or Nashville airports.
