The Transportation Security Administration will open a new TSA Precheck enrollment center in Seattle on Thursday.

TSA Precheck allows pre-approved travelers to keep on their shoes, belts and light outerwear while going through security. They also can keep their laptops in their cases and approved liquids and gels in a bag in their carry-on.

People can apply for TSA Precheck online and complete the process at the new enrollment center. Applicants are required to make an in-person visit so they can verify their identity, provide fingerprints, and show necessary documentation.

The new enrollment center is located at4123 4th Avenue South, just north of the Costco Warehouse and south of Diagonal Ave South.

In addition to the new Seattle location, travelers can apply with the TSA at locations in Fife, Everett and Anacortes.
