New ID law affects JBLE access
JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, Va. —
Beginning Oct. 10, 2017, Joint Base Langley-Eustis will begin enforcing more stringent ID policies in accordance with Federal Law passed in 2005. This will affect the ability to access the base with a Virginia state-issued ID.
The REAL ID Act, passed by Congress in 2005, officially went into effect June 6, 2017; however, the Department of Homeland Security issued a grace period for enforcing the act, which extends through Oct. 10, 2017.
