TSA recognizes federally recognized, tribal-issued photo IDs as acceptable forms of identification.

If you plan to travel with cultural or sacred items and believe that additional assistance may be needed during TSA screening or you have other TSA questions, please contact the TSA Contact Center (TCC), at least 72 hours in advance of your travel.
