TWIC Enrollment Information
About the TWIC ...
The Transportation Workers Identification Credential (TWIC) is an
identification card issued by TSA (Transportation Security
Administration), NOT the US Coast Guard.
  • All mariners applying for an original issue of an MMC Endorsement
    must enroll in the TWIC program.
  • Enrollment is done through a Universal Enrollment Center (UEC).

Enrollment in the TWIC program costs about  $160 and takes about 15
to 20 minutes.

You will be required to provide some personal information, and a
government issued photo identification (a passport is the best if you
have one).

TSA will take a digital photograph and your fingerprints, which is
forwarded to the FBI to construct a background file. This background
file is assessed by:
  • TSA for terrorist threats.
  • USCG for criminal activity.
Renewal of the MMC and the TWIC

Renewal of the TWIC requires going to a Universal Enrollment (UE)
Center and providing your personal and digital information the same as
your original enrollment.

With some exceptions noted in the instructions on form CG 719B
renewal of your MCC, which is also valid for five years, requires
renewing your TWIC as well.
