All four Print Scan Fingerprinting locations process applications for individuals seeking their Transportation Worker Identification Credential TWIC card.
The Transportation Worker Identification Credential program is a Transportation Security Administration and U.S. Coast Guard initiative in the United States.
The TWIC program provides a tamper-resistant biometric credential to maritime workers requiring unescorted access to secure areas of port facilities, outer continental shelf facilities, and vessels regulated under the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002, or MTSA, and all U.S. Coast Guard credentialed merchant mariners. Those seeking unescorted access to secure areas aboard affected vessels, and all Coast Guard credentialed merchant mariners, must obtain a TWIC card. To obtain a TWIC card, an individual must provide biographic and biometric information such as fingerprints, sit for a digital photograph and successfully pass a security threat assessment conducted by TSA. The assessment considers convictions, arrest warrants, and indictments for certain offenses and other background information.
Workers required to obtain a TWIC card include credentialed merchant mariners, port facility employees, longshore workers, truck drivers, and others requiring unescorted access to secure areas of security-regulated maritime facilities and vessels.
