REAL ID Act of 2005

Attention, all CAP members in Great Lakes Region:

Beginning on January 22, 2018, Illinois Wing, Michigan Wing and Kentucky Wing will be on travel restrictions due to the REAL ID Act of 2005. As a result, the driver’s licenses in these states will no longer be accepted for airline travel and people in these states will need either a passport or a passport card to board a flight.

This could affect CAP members traveling to the 2018 Legislative Day/Winter Command Council meeting March 1-3 in Washington, D.C., and/or any other CAP travel after January 22nd of next year.

Please consider that there will be an expected rush on getting passports/passport cards in these noncompliant states, so everyone is encouraged to apply for a passport/passport card today.
