DeKalb Chamber offers passport applications for REAL ID Act


Air travelers may not be able to use their Illinois drivers’ licenses or other state issued ID cards next year, because they aren’t in compliance with federal law; but the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce says there’s an alternative available.

The U.S. Post Office and the Chamber are offering special times to Chamber members seeking to apply for a passport…since a U.S. passport is compliant with the REAL ID Act.

As of January 22nd, Illinois drivers’ licenses will not be accepted as airport identification; anyone looking to travel by air will need to apply for a passport as soon as possible, in order to get access beyond an airport security checkpoint.

Chamber members can go to the DeKalb Post Office on Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. and on Sunday by appointment; Post Office personnel will be available to help them with their passport application.

You can set up an appointment time by calling the Postmaster at (815) 758-6677; registration fees will apply.
