TSA Pre✓® Trusted Traveler Program
TSA PreCheck provides 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. TSA PreCheck 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 when traveling on participating airlines at participating U.S. airports.
Normal operating hours for TSA PreCheck are 4:00 am to 8:30 pm but you can confirm whether the TSA PreCheck lanes will be open when you’re flying at TSA Pre✓ ® Checkpoint Schedule.
TSA PreCheck enrollment initiative for departing passengers:
MCO is one of the first airports to offer the new TSA PreCheck enrollment initiative for departing travelers. It will allow travelers to enroll in TSA PreCheck as they depart for their trip with no need for an appointment. IDEMIA TSA PreCheck Enrollment Ambassadors are stationed in front of the security checkpoint for Gates 1-59, located on the South Walk side, with carts equipped to enroll passengers in TSA PreCheck. An added benefit is travelers who apply on-site will have access to the MCO Reserve Lane* at the security checkpoint for their departure on the day they complete their TSA PreCheck application.
*MCO Reserve is a reservation lane that provides a faster, more predictable experience, but it still requires you to go through normal TSA standard security screening procedures. The MCO Reserve Lane is located between the TSA PreCheck and standard security screening lanes at the security checkpoint to Gates 1-59.
Hours of operation for the enrollment initiative are: Monday – Friday: 5:00 am – 11:00 am (Saturday – Sunday: Closed)
This new, simplified initiative for departing travelers delivers TSA PreCheck enrollment in five minutes or less, and most passengers will receive their Known Traveler Number (KTN) within three to five days, and in most cases, just in time for their return trip.
Enrolling at the airport is even faster if the traveler applies online beforehand. TSA PreCheck enrollment requires proof of identity, proof of citizenship (forms of identification can be located here: proof of citizenship), fingerprint and photo capture. There is an $85 enrollment application fee, which covers five years of participation, if approved. Click here if you wish to start the application process before arriving at MCO.
If you are not a departing traveler, but still interested in enrolling in TSA PreCheck:
