Key Things To Know About REAL ID Changes For Travel

Have you been hearing about REAL ID and wondering how it impacts you?

I wanted to share some key information with you about these important changes and provide you with some resources to learn more.

The REAL ID Act was passed by congress back in 2005 after the 9/11 attacks to ensure higher standards for identification used for travel.

Starting 5/3/23, travelers 18 years of age and older will be required to present a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license/state ID or other acceptable form of ID, like a passport, in order to fly domestically.

Please note that REAL ID changes only affect domestic travel (i.e. within the USA, including Hawaii and Alaska). It does NOT have any impact on international travel.

Not sure if your current driver’s license/state ID is REAL ID-compliant?

REAL ID-compliant cards will have a star in the upper right-hand corner.

Requirements to obtain a REAL ID vary from state to state. At a minimum, you must provide documentation showing your full legal name, date of birth, SSN, two proofs of address and lawful status.

You will need to visit your state’s driver’s licensing agency website to find out exactly what documentation is required to obtain a REAL ID. For example, if you live in MN, you can click here to see the requirements for obtaining a REAL ID in MN.

With the deadline approaching, I would encourage you to make the switch over to a REAL ID sooner than later to hopefully avoid potential crowds as we get closer to 10/1/20.
