Starting in 2018, 9 US states will require passports for their residents to board ANY flight (even domestic) That means that if you’re going to take a flight and you have a state-issued ID from one of the following nine states, you will need a passport to go anywhere.
- South Carolina
Why the change? The Real ID Act of 2005 states that the IDs issued in the above nine U.S. states do not meet the minimum security standards as issued by the federal government and will require another form of identification in order to board any flight.
Examples of acceptable forms of federal identification include:
- U.S. military or dependent ID
- DHS trusted traveler cards
- airline or airport-issued ID
- passport book or passport card
- federally recognized tribal-issued photo ID.
