Transportation Worker Identification Credential Program
The Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) program is a Transportation Security Administration and U.S. Coast Guard initiative. The TWIC program provides a tamper-resistant biometric credential to maritime workers requiring unescorted access to secure areas of port facilities.
The TWIC is a requirement for all persons who require unescorted access to Port of Corpus Christi secure and restricted areas.
As part of the required enrollment process, all applicants are required to provide biographical information, fingerprints, and have a photo taken. The TWIC applicant will then be notified by email or phone if they have met the qualifications to receive a card. If so, they must then go to the IndentoGo at 1620 S.P.I.D., Ste. 175 to pick up the TWIC. A biometric verification is made at that time. The applicant selects a PIN, the credential is activated and is valid for 5 years.
All persons needing to obtain a TWIC are highly encouraged to pre-enroll through the TWIC.
