A temporary TSA Pre-Check enrollment site will be available next week at Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport.

To be approved for TSA Pre-Check, a traveler must apply and be deemed low-risk. It’s typically awarded to U.S. citizens, nationals and lawful permanent residents who haven’t committed a violent crime or an act of espionage or terrorism.

Starting next Monday, Wichita's airport will open a temporary enrollment site on the second floor of the terminal building. It will be a one-stop shop for people interested in enrolling in the pre-check program, which eliminates the need to remove shoes, laptops, certain liquids, jackets and belts while going through security.

A passport or driver’s license, and a birth certificate are needed, along with an $85 fee. The enrollment site will open from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. from Monday, June 20, through Friday, June 24.

TSA Pre-Check is currently available in more than 160 U.S. airports.
