NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – New Jersey residents looking to board an airplane next year will soon have to “get REAL.”
Beginning Oct. 1, 2020, REAL ID licenses and ID cards will be required for domestic flights and enter some federal buildings.
Without one, passengers will need another form of identification such as a passport or military ID. REAL IDs are marked with a gold star in the upper right corner.
