Frequently Asked Questions

5. CREDENTIAL ISSUANCE

You will receive a notification email for credential issuance with directions on how to pick up the RAPIDGate credential.

What to expect:

Allow a minimum of 15 minutes for issuance.

1. Identity Proofing:

Bring two different forms of identification. Both must be originals and current, as expired or canceled documents are unacceptable. One document must have a photo.

Please view Acceptable Identification Documents for a complete list.

Avoiding Credential Issuance Delays

Many RAPIDGate® participants are unable to pick up their credentials on the first appointment because they bring the wrong identity-proofing documents. Save a trip and avoid a second appointment by providing the appropriate Acceptable Identification Documents. Make sure the identification documents you bring match the name you registered with!

To learn more, see the Name Matching Reference Guide.

2. Fingerprint Scanning:

You will be asked to rescan your fingerprints to verify your identity with a scan of your fingerprints to ensure they match the fingerprint the RAPIDGate Program has on file.

3. Certificate Writing (RAPIDGate Premier):

Digital certificates will be written to your credential (7 min).

4. Subscriber Agreement (RAPIDGate Premier):

You will be required to sign a Subscriber Agreement to receive your RAPIDGate Program Credential.

SUBSCRIBER AGREEMENT

The agreement is entered into during credential issuance (RAPIDGate Premier), governing your rights and obligations with respect to the receipt and use of a PIV-I Credential issued to you.
