Non-drivers must present a valid government issued Real ID Act compliant photo identification card.  Starting on Feb. 5, 2018, American Samoa’s exception to the REAL ID Act of 2005 expired and the territory is now non-compliant with the Act’s provisions.  Federal agencies, including DoD and DLA, can no longer accept driver’s licenses and identification cards from American Samoa for the purpose of installation access control.  All other U.S. States and territory drives license and identifications are valid for use of accessing federal installations and facilities.
