How does this impact YOU
as an FBI Citizens Academy Alumni Member?
You will need a Real ID card or other federally approved form of ID to enter secure federal facilities (the FBI Building being one of those) or board a commercial flight in the U.S. on October 1, 2021.
Things that will be impacted: Any function the FBICAAA hosts inside the Portland FBI building, you will need to have either the Real ID or Passport to attend, there will be no exceptions. Upcoming Citizens Academy Nominee’s will need to be aware of this requirement, and in addition to the air travel that takes place, many of the facilities we tour on the FBICAAA Annual trip to Washington D.C. will require the Real Id or Passport; Pentagon, CIA, FBI HQ, Quantico, Bureau of Prisons, and the National Terrorism Center to name a few.
