What’s the deal with REAL ID?

Real ID travel

REAL ID is the real deal, but many of us are still not quite sure what it is and how it will affect us. Here’s a brief rundown of the federally standardized license compliance:

• It’s voluntary, but you should travel with alternative REAL ID-compliant IDs (valid passport, valid military ID or some forms of tribal IDs).

• REAL ID-compliant forms of identification are needed to access federal facilities and military bases as well as commercial planes.

• REAL ID compliance begins in Alaska on Oct. 1, 2020.

• The application process, similar to the current ID application process, includes mail-in.
