What type of identification is required to travel?

Answer: 

According to the Transportation Security Administration website www.tsa.gov, domestic passengers age 18 and over must present one form of photo identification issued by a local state or federal government agency (e.g.: passport/drivers license/military ID), or two forms of non-photo identification, one of which must have been issued by a state or federal agency (e.g.: U.S. social security card). For an international flight, passengers need to present a valid passport, visa, or any other required documentation. Passengers without proper ID can be denied boarding. However, they are usually allowed to travel as long as they undergo some additional screening procedures. The airport recommends contacting your airline directly to find out what forms of identification they would accept in this particular situation. Please note that all passengers who are traveling without proper ID MUST be processed through their airline ticket counter before going through the security check-point. This must be done, regardless of whether or not they have to check luggage or have previously acquired a boarding pass prior to arriving at the airport. Please be sure you check in at the ticket counter prior to going to the security check-point.
