Seattle-Tacoma International Airport will be the first airport in the U.S. to allow non-ticketed guests passed security since 9/11.

This is not yet a permanent option but they are just testing it at the moment. The trial has already begun and will end on Dec. 14th.

You can sign up for a “Visitor Pass” online before 1:30 p.m. on the day before your visit. The TSA must send you an approval email, and then you may pick up a pass when you arrive at the airport the next day. Just because you sign up though doesn't guarantee you a pass. You can sign up HERE!

This temporary program will only allow 50 visitors per day. 

Visitors with passes must also have a photo ID and go through the same TSA checkpoint as ticketed passengers.

This program is only available Tuesday through Sunday between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m.
