With the launch of the TSA’s Real ID Act looming in 2023, we can expect to see a growing number of domestic fliers begin to wear and use their identification, which is required when boarding domestic flights.

While the law was originally designed to facilitate the use of real passports and driver’s licenses for U.S. flights, it appears that domestic fliers will be required to use other types of identification like Driver’s Licenses or Identification Cards.

The requirements for a valid identification to board domestic flights are listed on the TSA’s website:

The following must be presented:

Valid photo ID;

If you do not have a valid photo ID;

A valid credit card, debit card, ATM card, or traveler’s check in denominations of $20 or greater;

Two copies of your social security number may be substituted for the social security number, if one copy is legible;

A valid passport or passport card;

A Social Security number can be substituted for the Social Security number.

A one-way ticket or round-trip ticket in the amount of $30 or greater;

If you do not have a valid passport or passport card;

A U.S. or U.S. Government-issued identification card, such as a Driver’s license or military identification card; or a State identification card issued by a state or political subdivision of a state;

A valid credit card, debit card, ATM card, or traveler’s check that is in denominations greater than $20; or, if your credit card or debit card is in a different denomination than your passport or passport card, it must be in the same series;

An approved alternative method of identification and proof
