New ID requirements on Fort Bragg

The REAL ID Act is enforced at Fort Bragg (WTVD)

Driver's licenses from five states will no longer be acceptable forms of IDs to get onto Fort Bragg.

The post will no longer accept licenses from Illinois, Missouri, Minnesota, New Mexico and Washington from people wanting a visitor's pass. The move is in compliance with the REAL ID Act, a Post-9/11 law passed by Congress in 2005 that basically cracks down on identity fraud by outlining tougher requirements to prove legal U.S. residency.

The licenses from the aforementioned five states have been labelled by the Department of Homeland Security as "non-compliant" with the law.

"Driver's licenses and identification cards issued by these states cannot be used to access not just Fort Bragg, but all federal facilities, to include other military installations," said Tom McCollum, Fort Bragg's Garrison spokesman, in a statement.

The change is effective immediately, as many states that have not complied with the federal law take advantage of an October enforcement extension. The following forms of ID are acceptable supplements to those states' driver's licenses:

  • United States Passport or United States Passport Card

  • Permanent Resident Card/Alien Registration Receipt Card (Form I-551)

  • Foreign passport with a temporary (I-551) stamp or temporary (I-551) printed notation on a machine readable immigrant visa

  • Employment authorization document that contains a photograph (Form I-766)

  • In the case of a non-immigrant alien authorized to work for a specific employer incident to status, a foreign passport with Form I-94 or Form I-94A bearing the same name as the passport and containing an endorsement of the alien's non-immigrant status, as long as the endorsement has not yet expired and the proposed employment is not in conflict with any restrictions or limitations identified on the form.

  • Current/valid driver's license from a Real ID Act-compliant state or state with a REAL ID Act extension for implementation

  • Driver License or ID card issued by Federal or Local Government Agencies meeting REAL ID standards with photo, name, DOB, gender, height, eye color & address

  • School identification card with a photograph

  • U.S. Military or draft record

  • U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Cards* Transportation Worker Identification Card

  • Native American Tribal Document
