A Guide to Travel Protection


Deadline Extended to May 3, 2023

The United States Department of Homeland Security on Tuesday announced that the deadline for obtaining a REAL ID is now May 3, 2023, because of the impact of COVID-19 on the enforcement.

The news means if you wish to travel domestically on an airplane without a passport or enhanced driver’s license - you will be able to do so until at least May 2023.

After that, every air traveler 18-years or older will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, a state-issued enhanced driver’s license, or a passport in order to get through TSA security checkpoints for domestic travel.

If you plan to fly domestically after the deadline - or enter a federal building and you don't have a passport -

don't delay get your REAL ID!
