U.S. Passport Book and Card are REAL ID Compliant

REAL ID Compliant

Beginning October 1, 2020, everyone traveling by air must present REAL ID-compliant identification to fly within the United States. REAL ID-compliant driver’s licenses and non-driver’s identification cards are marked by a star on the top of the card.

The U.S. passport book and U.S. passport card are both REAL ID-compliant and accepted by TSA for domestic flights. The passport card cannot be used for international air travel.


Passport agents are available Monday through Friday at out Paterson Office as well as our Wanaque Satellite Office.

Check out our website for the current outreach schedule!
