Arizona Voluntary Travel ID

The Arizona Voluntary Travel ID is the credential that complies with the federal REAL ID Act of 2005. The Voluntary Travel ID is available as both a driver license and identification card. As its name suggests, Arizona residents will have the option to obtain a Voluntary Travel ID.

The Voluntary Travel ID will serve as valid identification to pass through airport security to board commercial aircraft as well as access restricted areas in federal facilities, nuclear power plants and military facilities.

Step by Step - Apply for a Travel ID

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

No Rush

There’s No Rush! But Don't Wait Too Long

Effective October 2020, the standard Arizona Driver License will no longer be accepted to pass through airport security to board commercial aircraft as well as access restricted areas in federal facilities, nuclear power plants and military facilities. The REAL ID compliant Voluntary Travel ID will be accepted.

Cost

The cost is $25 for first time issuance and renewals. In most instances, it will be valid for eight years.
