REAL ID: Are You Travel Ready?
Many Americans are unaware that they will soon need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license (or an acceptable alternative identification, such as a federally recognized, tribal-issued photo ID) to fly on any domestic flight. According to a Fall 2019 survey by the U.S. Travel Association, 57% of Americans are unaware they will need to replace their ID to access domestic flights.
This could mean tens of millions of passengers will be turned away on October 1, 2020 for not having the necessary documents to fly. What’s more, REAL ID will be required to visit many federal sites, including some federal office buildings.
This webinar, conducted by Steve Yonkers, Director of the REAL ID Program, US Department of Homeland Security, will present the latest information on the REAL ID program and how you can help your Tribal members be prepared to have compliant IDs when they travel.
