Through the TSA Pre✔® vetting process, information is embedded in a barcode on your boarding pass. This information alerts TSA agents that you are eligible for expedited screening. In the TSA Pre-Check lane you may no longer need to remove the following items:
- 3-1-1 compliant bag from your carry-on (liquid/gel restrictions still apply)
- Laptop from your bag (if your bag is cluttered or electronic items are stacked on top of each other, TSA may require removal)
- Light outerwear or jacket
Visit the TSA Pre✓® website for more information on the program.
The TSA Pre✔® Enrollment Center at John Wayne Airport is located on the Arrival (lower) Level of Terminal C, near Baggage Carousel 7, next to the U.S. Customs exit. While walk-ins may be accommodated, travelers are encouraged to pre-enroll and/or make an appointment online at www.TSA.gov or by contacting the Universal Enrollment Services Call Center at 855-DHS-UES1 (855-347-8371) Monday through Friday from 8 am to 10 pm (ET).
