Real ID Deadline Extended One Year

 

Federal officials have extended the deadline for Real ID compliance for one year as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

Previously Americans had until Oct. 1, 2020 to get their new ID card but amid a national emergency, the Department of Homeland Security has moved the enforcement deadline to Oct. 1, 2021.

Unfortunately veterans cannot choose what flight they will travel on due to medical and logistic issues associated with the flight process. We also encourage veterans from the Syracuse and Buffalo area's to visit and register with their local Honor Flight hubs before registering with Rochester Honor Flight.
