TUCSON, Ariz. — In support of Gov. Doug Ducey's "Don't Get Grounded" campaign to ensure that all Arizonans obtain a federally valid ID by the 2020 deadline, the university Passports Office will host a spcial "Passport Day" application event on Saturday, Feb. 22, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Beginning Oct. 1, 2020, domestic travelers will be required to present a "Real ID" to board a flight. While state driver's licenses without a gold star will no longer be accepted, a passport will fulfill the federal requirements for identification required after the October 2020 deadline.
Beyond the traditional passport book, passport cards – which can be used for ground or water crossing into Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean and Bermuda – are the most cost-effective option to use as a federally valid ID for domestic flights.
Applicants should bring:
- Proof of citizenship. Every applicant must have a certified or original version of their document.
- Government-issued photo ID. Required for every applicant (or parents of minor applicants).
- Recent passport style photo (2 inches by 2 inches), or applicants can use the photo services available on site for $10.
