The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued a reminder for all travelers that REAL ID requirement and enforcement will begin October 1, 2020.

Airline passengers will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, state-issued enhanced driver’s license, a valid passport or U.S. military ID to go through airport security and board a plane within the country.  If you do not have a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, you can get a replacement driver’s license or use one of the other accepted forms of identification to travel.  A valid passport is still required for international travel.

Travelers who do not present an acceptable form of identification will not be permitted to enter the Transportation Security Administration checkpoints.

In Wisconsin, REAL ID-compliant cards are generally marked with a star located in the upper right portion of the card.  To apply for a REAL ID compliant card in Wisconsin, you will need additional documentation. For information in Wisconsin,  you can go to Wisconsin DOT for more information.

If you do not have a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, you can get a replacement driver’s license or use one of the other accepted forms of identification to travel.

Please note - a REAL ID does not replace a passport
