Travel ID for Arizonans – October 2021 is Approaching – Fast Facts by FooteWork Auto License and Title Service
Federal law states that a federally recognized identification will be required to board a domestic commercial airline, enter any federal building, military base, or nuclear facility by October 1, 2021. Until October 1, 2021 all regularly issued state identification or driver license will be accepted to fly commercially.
If you choose not to have a Travel ID by October 1, 2021, a U.S. Passport can be used in place of a Travel ID to board a commercial airline, or to enter any federal building, military base, or nuclear facility.
A Travel ID is only good for 8 years at a time or until age 65, whichever is shorter. After age 65, Travel ID’s are good for only 5 years at a time from date of issuance.
A Travel ID will not allow you to travel outside the United States. You will need a US Passport to do this.
Travel ID notation can be issued as a driver license or identification card.
Additional documentation is required for any type of Travel ID.
