TSA Pre✓® ENROLLMENT OPPORTUNITY IS COMING TO THE ROGUE VALLEY INTERNATIONAL – MEDFORD AIRPORT
The Rogue Valley International – Medford Airport is excited to announce TSA Pre✓® Enrollment services will soon be coming to Medford. Even now individuals can begin to pre-enroll and schedule for an appointment ahead of time, which is encouraged. The enrollment services will be on-site in the Airport’s Oval Office beginning April 11, 2017, and available through April 22, 2017. Hours of enrollment will be 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Enrollment will not be available Sunday and Monday. Customers can also call the MorphoTrust Call Center at 855-347-8371 to begin the process. Those wishing to enroll online should go to: www.tsa.gov/precheck.
In addition, walk-in enrollments will also be accepted; however, there could be extended wait times as individuals who have pre-scheduled appointments will be a priority.
Cost to enroll in TSA’s Pre✓® program is $85.00 for a five-year membership. Those applying must have required documentation.
TSA initially rolled out PreCheck in 2011 as a pilot program. Since then it has continued to gain popularity. The program allows expedited screening for individuals who have opted into an increased vetting program. After being approved these travelers are issued a “Known Traveler Number”. At participating airports enrolled passengers can experience reduced screening requirements, which allows them to keep their shoes, belts, and outerwear on, and reduces the requirement to remove laptops, liquids and gels. It is much more convenient and minimizes the congestion at checkpoints.
“We have been working on arranging for the temporary services to be available here in Medford for quite some time,” stated Airport Director Bern Case. “This will be the opportunity for those individuals who have shown an interest in getting enrolled in the program. It can be done right here in Medford during the two weeks in April.”
The Airport is in full support of TSA Pre✓® Enrollment and will be validating parking for those coming to the Oval Office to participate.
