We have all heard about the special ID’s we will need to travel by plane beginning this October. Well, like a lot of things, the deadline has been put on-hold. Now, the deadline for having the special ID for flying and for entering Federal buildings is October 2021.

On Thursday the Arizona department of Transportation (ADOT) made the announcement that the US Department of Homeland Security has pushed the deadline back by 12-months.

As you might guess, the decision was made in Washing because of the current Covid-19 crisis in Arizona and across the land. To get the special ID we will have to apply in person, creating crowded scene not needed at this time.
