Access to Federal Buildings May be Affected by REAL ID Requirements

If you don’t have REAL ID compliant identification, it may become more difficult to enter federal and military facilities.

According to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) update on REAL ID enforcement, federal and military facilities will require visitors to have compliant identification, unless an exemption has been granted.

Many states have implemented REAL ID, while others have obtained extensions to allow more time for implementation.

Identification required for airports by the TSA will not change for the time being, but DHS will announce by the end of the year changes to air travel identification requirements.

Congress passed the REAL ID Act in 2005, enacting a recommendation from the 9/11 Commission that the Federal Government “set standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver's licenses.”

Additonal information on REAL ID implementation and its effects on government property can be found at Homeland Security Today and Federal News Radio.
