REAL ID Compliance
Minnesota air travelers must obtain a "REAL ID" Minnesota driver's license or identification (ID) card if they want to use one to board a commercial flight in the U.S. after Oct. 1, 2021.
More information about REAL ID can be found on the Minnesota Department of Public Safety's website.
Please note that a valid U.S. passport, military ID or enhanced ID will continue to be accepted for air travel after the Oct. 1 deadline, regardless of whether an individual has a REAL ID.
