New travel ID requirements take effect in October

Update | Friday, February 28, 2020

Beginning on October 1, 2020, the federal government will no longer consider standard driver licenses and identification cards as sufficient forms of identification for air travel. The Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) will require a federally compliant driver license, identification card (referenced as REAL ID), or another acceptable form of identification (such as a U.S. passport or military ID) to fly within the United States.  

See this link for additional information about TSA identification requirements. The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles encourages travelers to be proactive by obtaining a REAL ID Ohio driver license or identification card soon. Please visit this link for additional information on the Ohio BMV/new ID card.

If you have questions regarding the new travel identification rules, contact Darrin Albaugh at extension 2641 or Tracy Thornton at extension 2443 in the Travel Office.
