Employees can make an appointment or join our line as a walk-in by using the “Join the Line” button above from wherever they are. This way, you can continue working (or relaxing at home) until we are ready to see you.
Before coming to see us, please be sure you can answer “yes” to both of these questions:
Did you receive an email letting you know we are ready to see you? If not, contact your Authorized Signatory. An Authorized Signatory is the designated representative authorized to request Airport Identification badges and maintain employee records on behalf of their agency.
Have you reviewed the Badge Identification Requirements for the required documents to ensure you have valid, acceptable documentation, and that your documents are originals (not copies) and in good condition (for example, are all names and numbers readable)?
Bring your documents with you - first time, every time!
Ready to come see us? Here are the three scheduling methods we offer:
