How much does it cost to get TSA approved?

First you must submit an application. There is a non-refundable fee for this application; $85 for PreCheck, $100 for Global Entry. The fee for both programs is good for five years, and most would tell you to spend the extra $15 and get the Global Entry pass.

In respect to this, how long does it take to get a TSA Pre?

After you've provided the TSA with all the necessary information, it should take less than four weeks for your application to be processed and for you to receive your Known Traveler Number.
