Traveling from one U.S. destination to another
by: Kristy

Question: We are traveling from St.Louis to Florida. Do we need a passport to travel within the United States yet?

Answer: Hi, Kristy. If your state-issued ID is not Real-ID compliant yet and your state has not been issued an extension, you need a passport or any other TSA-approved identification in order to travel domestically.
