Nebraska REAL ID
Nebraska began issuing REAL IDs in 2013, following the federal guidelines outlined in the REAL ID Act.
A REAL ID-compliant identification will soon be required to:
- Take a commercial flight.
- Enter nuclear power plants.
- Enter certain federal facilities.
NOTE: A passport or other federally accepted ID will also satisfy the requirements for the purposes listed above.
A Nebraska REAL ID is marked with a gold star. Currently, all valid Nebraska IDs are already REAL ID-compliant.
