TSA 101: How to get the magic number


If you are like me – sometimes TSA waves you through – other times ( i.e.that huge long line in Albuquerque) you must remove shoes, jacket, vest, necklace; then pull out iPad, iMac, iPhone, and toss the snack…

Here is a a hot travel tip:

First: Go online and start the process TSA PRE enroll.

NOTE:  It takes five minutes to submit an online application and schedule an in-person appointment that includes a background check and fingerprinting at an enrollment center.

Next, Make an Appointment  Online at IDENTGO or gamble and arrive very early  (opens at 07:30) be a Walk-In.


Beware the Traffic Coming from SF/North – Take the Candlestick/Tunnel Exit’  Look for the Huge, Blue-Tiled Building.

Park in front of BLDG #150

Take the Elevator to Third Floor – Identgo is on the Right; Approach the desk and  Check in …No Appointmentt?  Walk in’s are processed as available.

I arrived at 0745 and the very nicest guy assisted me.

In my possession I hadpass-2530814__340

  • Passport
  • Driver’s License,  
  • a Credit Card / Cash 
  •  the completed  TSA PRE Enroll form.
  • My passport was about to expire soon – Right Then and There: I got a passport photo taken for $10.85 and suggestions from said  Mr. Nice Guy on exactly how-to renew.

I was lucky to get the most professional/nicest guy in first office…Joy! A couple weeks later I got my magic TSA Number.pixabay-641075__340-2
