Traveler ID Update  -  What to know before you go . . . .


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) previously announced a deadline of January 22, 2018 that mandated the use of state issued ID's that meet REAL ID requirements for air travel; that mandate has been changed.  Currently all States and Territories ( with the exception of American Samoa) have either complied with REAL ID requirements or received an extension to October 1, 2020 to comply.  Travelers can check the most up to date status of their individual states compliance on the DHS website.
