Let’s just skip to the chase.

Bring government-issued photo identification and proof of U.S. Citizenship (a birth certificate or a passport) if travelers want to enroll in the TSA Pre√ program at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport.

Once approved, travelers will be enrolled for five years for $85.

If you don’t have these items, forget about it. You will not get enrolled.

“The biggest variable (in Pre√) is getting through the security line faster,” said Logan Wolfram, who enrolled Monday. She is an author from Greenville and is working on her second faith-based book. She travels frequently to speak at conferences.

“It also means I have a background check,” Wolfram said. “Don’t be dumb and do everything you are asked and pack with a purpose.”

A TSA representative said traveling through larger and busier airports are much easier enrolled in the program.

“If people ever went through Chicago with pre check, travelers would understand the value,” a TSA spokesperson said. “I can wait in line 45 minutes in Chicago and a representative will tell those on a pre checked on their mobile app to move forward. It’s just like clockwork.”

Enrollment continues at the GSP Conference Center located on the first floor of the through Friday, 9 a.m. – noon and 1-5 p.m.

Enrollees do not need to remove:

• Shoes

• Belts

• Light jackets

• Laptops

• Approved liquids

The applicant will be interviewed and a background check conducted.
