What is a Travel ID?
If you’re a legal permanent resident of the United States, you’ll need to get a travel ID if you want to fly anywhere within the country. A travel ID is basically an enhanced driver’s license that contains extra security features. It’s issued by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and it’s mandatory for all air travel.
You can apply for a travel ID at any Arizona Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) office. The process is pretty simple and straightforward. You’ll need to provide proof of your identity, residency, and U.S. citizenship or legal permanent residency status. Once your application is approved, you’ll be able to pick up your travel ID within 10 business days.
If you have any questions about getting a travel ID in Arizona, feel free to contact the DMV office nearest you for more information.
Why do I need a Travel ID?
In order to travel by airplane within the United States, all passengers must now present a valid ID. This requirement is part of the REAL ID Act, which was passed by Congress in 2005. The act standardizes the types of IDs that can be used for travel and strengthens the requirements for getting a ID.
As of October 1st, 2020, the only IDs that will be accepted for air travel are a passport, a passport card, or a Travel ID. A Travel ID is basically an enhanced driver’s license that meets the new requirements of the REAL ID Act. If you have a Green Card, you are not eligible for a passport or passport card, so a Travel ID is your only option if you want to fly within the US.
Getting a Travel ID is not mandatory, but if you want to fly after October 1st, 2020, you will need to have one. You can apply for a Travel ID at your local DMV office. The process is similar to getting a regular driver’s license, but you will need to bring additional documentation to prove your identity, such as your Green Card and your birth certificate.
