Federal government extends AZ Travel ID deadline DHS/TSA announce May 2025 compliance date


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has again extended the deadline for domestic airline travelers to have a federally-compliant form of ID. The new date is May 7, 2025. The Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division follows TSA guidelines and still encourages people to consider getting the Arizona Travel ID to avoid delays or other travel issues at TSA checkpoints once this takes effect.

Beginning May 7, 2025, you will need a federally-compliant credential -- like the Arizona Travel ID -- to get past TSA checkpoints at airports for domestic flights. For most people, the main reason to get the Arizona Travel ID is that it will make travel easier. Without the Arizona Travel ID or another form of federally-compliant identification such as a valid U.S. Passport, fliers risk missing an airline flight because the standard driver's license will not be accepted at TSA checkpoints.

This credential is distinguished by a star in the upper right corner and is available to Arizona residents as a driver's license or identification card.

You can walk in to an office for this service, but we suggest scheduling an appointment which can be done online at Even if you haven't activated your AZ MVD NOW account, you can still schedule a Travel ID appointment.

Because the Arizona Travel ID is compliant with federal standards, you will need to provide extra documentation. This includes:

  • Proof of identity: a birth certificate or US passport
  • Social Security Number: just the number, not the card
  • Two documents proving Arizona residency: rental or bank statements, credit card or cell phone bills in your name with your current Arizona address, etc.
