Passport TSA

 

If you (significantly) don’t look like your passport picture anymore, your passport may no longer be valid. With the development of facial recognition technology, it’s important that you can be identified by your passport or ID photo. Don’t freak out if you’ve colored your hair or grown facial hair — the Department of State only requires a new photo if you’ve undergone “significant change” like facial surgery, a gender transition, significant weight loss/gain, or adding/removing facial tattoos and piercings.

Now you can’t say you weren’t warned.

Signs are sprouting up at many airports to alert travelers that beginning Jan. 22, 2018, the Transportation Security Administration will begin strict enforcement of the REAL ID requirements at airport security checkpoints.

That means that, a year from now, passengers presenting a driver’s license or identification card from a state where those documents don’t meet the REAL ID Act’s minimum security standards — and where extensions to meet those requirements have not been granted — may be turned away.

Canada Is Dangerous And Other Travel Safety Issues That Can Hurt You And Your Family

Recently in the Wall Street Journal, Joe Queenan wrote about the issue of travel safety. In ‘Dying to Go to Acapulco – Literally’ Queenan talks about the ‘online cheerleaders’ who are touting Mexico as a vacation spot in spite of the wide spread violence.

In response to their illogical claims of a safe Mexico, he poses the question, “Wouldn’t it make more sense to go someplace where there aren’t drug gangs, homicides and abductions?”

While traveling is a rewarding and fun activity it requires a plan of action to keep you, your family, students, volunteers or employees safe.
