TSA Pre-Check

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) began offering a Pre-Check enrollment center inside the Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) in December, 2015.  The Pre-Check enrollment center is located in the Ticketing area of RNO, across from Delta Air Lines and Allegiant. Hours of operation are: Monday - Friday, 7:30 to 11:30 am and 12:30 to 4:30 pm.

TSA Pre-Check is an expedited screening program that allows frequent travelers to leave on their shoes, coats and belt; keep their laptop in its case and keep 3-1-1 compliant liquids in a carry-on bag. Interested travelers who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents should pre-enroll at www.IdentoGO.com/tsa-preckeck and set up an appointment to visit the enrollment center at Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Walk-ins are also welcome.
