ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (WFRV) – Wisconsin residents can enroll in the Transportation Security Administration’s TSA PreCheck application program inside Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport in a special event.

The application process allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to enroll directly in TSA PreCheck, an expedited screening program that allows travelers to leave on their shoes, light outwear, and belt; keep their food items in their carry-on bag; laptops in its case; and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on, in selected TSA airport checkpoint screening lanes.
Officials say that more than 200 airports participate in TSA PreCheck nationwide, and dozens of airlines participate in the program.
To participate in the enrollment opportunity, travelers should pre-enroll and make an appointment online. After completing the pre-enrollment steps, applicants type in the location “Green Bay, WI” and click on the search button to select the enrollment site for “Pop Up: GRB. 8/7-8/11.”
