Arizona Voluntary Travel ID

New Driver License and ID Card Requirements Starting October 2020

If you use your Arizona Driver License or Identification Card at TSA security checkpoints as well as access to federal facilities, you will need the Voluntary Travel ID.

A variety of documents other than a driver license are permissible at TSA checkpoints. For information on other acceptable identification, please visit the TSA website.

Note: Rules for international travel are unchanged, and you will still need a valid passport or equivalent to travel outside the United States.

Getting a Voluntary Travel ID

Applicants must apply in person, but fill out the application before visiting an office.

Background Information

The Arizona Voluntary Travel ID is the credential that complies with the federal REAL ID Act of 2005. It is available as both a driver license and identification card. There is a gold star embedded in the card to show that the cardholder has provided added proof of identification to ensure the license or ID meets strict federal requirements. 

For more information on the REAL ID Act, please visit the Department of Homeland Security website.

The Arizona Ombudsman – Citizens Aide helps you resolve ongoing issues with State Agencies.
