Deadline To Get AZ Travel ID Postponed Until October 2021

The deadline for Arizona residents to obtain a driver's license or ID that complies with federal law has been pushed back by a year.

The Arizona Department of Transportation announced Thursday that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has delayed the deadline until Oct. 1, 2021. The decision was made to help reduce crowds at motor vehicle offices during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Getting an AZ Travel ID must be done in person. Initially, the updated ID that will be required to fly commercially and enter federal facilities would have been enforced starting this October.
