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


Starting January 22, 2018, DHS will no longer accept state issued ID's.  Travelers from "non-compliant" States will need to show an alternative form of ID such as a passport, when boarding a plane.  So far there are only 25 States with ID standards that meet those set forward by the REAL ID Act. Residents of these 25 States can continue to fly domestically with a driver's license.  The remaining States have been given extensions to comply with REAL ID.  Travelers can check the most up to date status of their individual states compliance on the DHS website.
