Real ID for domestic flights

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

i have just learned of the Real ID we need for domestic flights starting October 2010

According to the Real ID site they accept this and another form of photo ID like a passport to fly within the US 

here in Tn they add a gold star to driving licence or state ID to show Real ID 

i am not sure how they intend to handle this with new K1 visa immigrants who are not yet eligible for driving licenses or state ID till the AOS is complete

anyone heard about this Real ID ?

This is what is says for Real ID on my state web page

 

Real ID comes to Tennessee: New standards for driver's licenses. You don't have to get a Real ID this summer. But without one, after Oct. 1, 2020, it'll be harder to fly on a commercial airliner, enter a federal office or get into a nuclear plant.

 

and a USCIS office would be a federal office !!!!!!!!!!

K1 visa holders would use their passport as ID, for domestic flights and federal offices, as is the case currently. They would use AOS I-797 as proof of authorized stay, if needed.

Some DMV offices accept the passport+K1+valid I-94 as proof of residence and will issue a Real ID.

that is now

from what i read on several state sites,

the Real ID is going to be required of us all

i am a USC and hold  a US passport , of course ,  but just called the airport here and was told the Real ID star on my driving licence will be needed after October 2020

Yes in some states it is possible to get a Real-ID state issued ID.  For example, in Arizona, you need to show proof of residence.  The key is to get on a utility bill or similar before entry, or right away,  so you can get the id before the I-94 expires.  Unfortunately the ID will expire when the I-94 expired but you can get it renewed with a 797 receipt.

 

If you wait until after the I-94 expires then you won;t get one until getting the EAD.

There have been several states who have been given extensions for the past few years but that is now drawing up a close   A passport is also  considered  an acceptable ID, this won’t change

Required for all US citizens and permanent residents, not foreigners.

Foreigners, as is the case all over the world, must show their passport when boarding any flight. 

K1 holders are NOT residents until they receive the green card, though, they can also apply for the Real ID with the EAD/AP.

 

The Real ID replaces regular driving license as an identification document, but does not replace a passport.

not saying it replaces the passport 

they are saying by October 2020 we all need this Real ID from DMV to travel domestic flights (even when we show a passport)

NC already has said everyone needs one / costs there only $10/ NY state costs is $96

just reading about this now for 3 days

That's not correct (if you've got a statement implying this from a government agency, it's wrong, or the wording is misleading).

 

If your driver's license or other state ID is not RealID compliant, it's not acceptable for domestic travel after Oct 2020, but that doesn't affect other forms of acceptable ID (like US and foreign passports)

 

See https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/identification for a list of acceptable forms of ID.
