Step 2: - Invite To Start The Application Online
  • Once BCMEA Dispatch Administration receives and processes the information, you will be emailed an invitation code to create an account and apply for your TSC. The invitation code is valid for only 4 days.

Step 3: - Fingerprint Appointment
  • Once your application has been reviewed the MTSC/Port Pass enrollment office will contact you directly by telephone/email to review your application and arrange an appointment for fingerprinting.

If you have any questions while completing the application, please contact the MTSC/Port Pass office by telephone or email.
