Temporary paper documents are not currently an acceptable form of ID recognized by TSA to board a flight.

Besides REAL ID-compliant driver’s licenses, other acceptable forms of ID to board a plane include:

· U.S. passports

· U.S. military IDs

· Permanent resident cards

· Government-issued passports from foreign countries

If your driver's license or state-issued ID expired on or after March 1, 2020, and you are unable to renew at your state driver’s license agency, you may still use it as acceptable identification at the checkpoint. TSA will accept expired driver’s licenses or state-issued ID one (1) year after expiration.

In the event that you arrive at the airport with expired identification, the TSA officer may ask you to complete an identity verification process which includes collecting information such as your name, current address, and other personal information to confirm your identity. If your identity is confirmed, you will be allowed to enter the screening checkpoint. You will be subject to additional screening, to include a patdown and screening of carry-on property.

You will not be allowed to enter the security checkpoint if your identity cannot be confirmed, you choose to not provide proper identification or you decline to cooperate with the identity verification process.

TSA recommends that you arrive at least two hours in advance of your flight time.

Please visit or check with your listed airline for more information.
