Virginia and SC are only two of the 21 states not in compliance that received extensions.

Harrisburg, PA- Governor Tom Wolf today announced that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has granted Pennsylvania a REAL ID enforcement extension through October 10, 2018.

The extension means Pennsylvania residents can continue to access federal facilities and board domestic airline flights until that date.

On Oct. 1, 2020, anyone hoping to board a domestic flight must have a REAL ID license or ID, valid passport, military ID, or other federally approved form of identification.

The state of Montana has been given another year before it has to begin complying with the REAL ID Act.
