WEEKLY UPDATES: REAL ID STATUS

REAL ID: Status of compliance concerns have been raised for travelers in the states marked Yellow on this map of the United States. According to the site, October 2018 is the cutoff for state extensions. The concern is travelers from those states would be unable to use their driver’s license as ID when boarding a plane. DON’T BE CONCERNED, GBTA has received the following update from Department of Homeland Security. “Driver’s license enforcement will not begin until October 1, 2020 barring any unforeseen events.  The 2018 extension deadline is mostly a procedural issue with the states at this point - given the fact that we have instituted quarterly reviews.”
