Real ID Domestic Air Travel Requirement Takes Effect on January 22, 2018

Anyone flying within the United States on or after January 22, 2018 will have to ensure that their state-issued driver’s license or identification card is compliant with the Real ID Act and its standards or has received an extension in which to comply.  If the traveler has a license or identification from a State that is not compliant he/she must present a valid passport or other acceptable form of documentation for air travel after January 22, 2018.

Acceptable forms of identification include a valid U.S. or foreign passport or a USCIS employment authorization document. The list of compliant States can be found by accessing this website  If you have additional questions concerning the Real ID Act please visit:

We would advise all individuals traveling domestically to plan ahead and check their driver’s license or identification to ensure that they are Real ID compliant, well in advance of any travels.
