Mayor,

Q: What is the process for obtaining a TWIC card? I need to get one for a job I’m applying for but I’m not sure where to call.

A: You can actually apply online for a Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) card. This card is required by the Maritime Transportation Security Act for workers who need access to secure areas of the nation’s maritime facilities/vessels.

TSA conducts a security threat assessment (background check) to determine a person’s eligibility and issues the credential. U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens in certain immigrant/non-immigrant categories may apply for the credential.

Go online to apply, or for more information such as which documents will be required. You can also apply online to transfer your TWIC card, or replace a lost, stolen or damaged card.
