Transportation Worker Identification Credentials are required for employees whose jobs mandate that they have unescorted access to secure areas regulated by the Maritime Transportation Security Act.

The Transportation Security Administration website allows individuals to search for enrollment centers by city, airport code or postal code.
At the enrollment center, workers must present official identification such as a valid passport or an Enhanced Driver's License.
