Current TWIC card holders do not need to replace a valid TWIC card with the new TWIC card design.
- Regulated entities that require TWIC for access will accept and recognize both the current and new TWIC designs until the card’s expiration.
- The new card design is compatible with qualified TWIC readers.
- To deter alteration of the card’s expiration date, the new card includes a color-coded expiration date box that will update on an annual basis.
- The fee for the newly re-designed TWIC card remains unchanged ($125.25) and the credential is valid for five years.
