IMPORTANT INFORMATION PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: THE MARINE EXCHANGE OF ALASKA HAS BEEN WORKING WITH THE TRANSPORTATION SECURITY ADMINISTRATION AND ITS CONTRACTOR LOCKHEED MARTIN AND THE COAST GUARD TO COME UP WITH A COMMON-SENSE SOLUTION FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE TWIC PROGRAM IN ALASKA. LOCKHEED MARTIN AND TSA HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED THAT, WITH ONLY FOUR FIXED ENROLLMENT CENTERS PLANNED FOR ALASKA, FORCING PEOPLE TO TRAVEL FROM EVERYWHERE ELSE IN ALASKA TO THESE FOUR CENTERS TWO TIMES WILL CREATE AN UNDUE HARDSHIP FOR BUSINESSES AND INDIVIDUALS WHO WILL BE REQUIRED TO POSSESS A TWIC CARD. LOCKHEED MARTIN HAS AGREED TO PROVIDE MOBILE ENROLLMENT CAPABILITY FOR SMALLER LOCATIONS OUTSIDE OF THE FIXED CENTERS LOCATED IN ANCHORAGE, JUNEAU, NIKISKI AND VALDEZ. THESE MOBILE ENROLLMENT CENTERS WILL OPERATE FOR SHORT PERIODS OF TIME IN THE SMALLER PORTS. IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT PERSONS NEEDING A TWIC CARD KEEP THEMSELVES INFORMED OF THE SCHEDULE FOR THE MOBILE ENROLLMENT CENTERS COMING TO THEIR AREA. THE MARINE EXCHANGE WILL PROVIDE THIS INFORMATION ON THIS WEB PAGE AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE SO CHECK BACK ON THIS PAGE FREQUENTLY FOR UPDATES. BELOW IS A SUMMARY OF GENERAL INFORMATION RELATED TO THE TWIC PROGRAM.
