Travelers can apply for TSA PreCheck at AVL Oct. 31-Nov. 11

The IdentoGo TSA PreCheck mobile truck will be serving the public at Asheville Regional Airport from Monday, Oct. 31, through Monday, Nov. 11, 2022.

The mobile enrollment center will be located in the cell phone lot across the street from the terminal.

TSA PreCheck is an expedited screening program that enables identified low-risk air travelers to enjoy a smart and efficient screening experience. For TSA PreCheck travelers, there is no need to remove shoes, 3-1-1 liquids, laptops, light outerwear or belts. Today, TSA PreCheck is at more than 200 U.S. airports.

The TSA PreCheck application program allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to directly apply for TSA PreCheck. Once approved, travelers will receive a "Known Traveler Number" (which can be added to a traveler’s airline profile and reservations) and will have the opportunity to use TSA PreCheck lanes at select security checkpoints when flying on over 80 airlines that currently participate in TSA PreCheck.

To participate in this local enrollment event, visit for instructions. Pre-registration is required, as appointments are limited and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.  

IMPORTANT:  To complete the application process, you will need to bring documentation proving identity and citizenship status. If you have a valid U.S. passport, that is all you need for ID. You will finish the process onsite by providing your fingerprints for a background check.

The application fee is $85 and can be paid by credit card, money order, company check or certified/cashier's check. Cash and personal checks are not accepted.
