Does REAL ID Affect Me

There has been quite a bit of buzz about this in the travel industry lately. What is REAL ID and does it affect me?  You will need a REAL ID compliant ID to travel even within the United States.  If you have a passport, this is compliant and you can travel with this in the USA. If you have another form of ID you will need to check if your state is compliant.

Check your state’s status: You can check if your state is REAL ID compliant at dhs.gov/real-id-enforcement-brief.

Passed by Congress in 2005, the REAL ID Act established minimum security standards for state-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards and prohibits federal agencies, like TSA, from accepting licenses and identification cards for official purposes from states that do not meet these standards. The REAL ID Act establishes minimum security standards for license issuance and production and prohibits Federal agencies from accepting for certain purposes driver’s licenses and identification cards from states not meeting the Act’s minimum standards. The purposes covered by the Act are: accessing Federal facilities, entering nuclear power plants, and, boarding federally regulated commercial aircraft.

Enforcement Dates:

  • Beginning January 22, 2018, driver’s licenses or state IDs issued by states that are not in compliance with the REAL ID Act and have not been granted an extension by DHS may not be used to fly within the U.S.
  • Beginning October 1, 2020, every traveler will need a REAL ID-compliant license or state ID or another acceptable form of identification to fly within the U.S.
