WASHINGTON : Americans planning to take a flight within the United States in 2018, will need to have a passport. Normally, a passport is only required for travel in and out of countries.

According to new TSA regulations that will be implemented in January 2018, residents of nine states who are boarding a domestic flight will no longer be able to use their state-issued driver's licence as identification, says a US travel website.

The TSA will require a passport to travel domestically starting Janu-ary 22, 2018, for residents of Kentucky, Maine, Minnes-ota, Missouri, Montana, Okla-homa, Pennsy-lvania, South Carolina, or Washington.

And by 2020, travellers across US will need to have Real ID compliant identification or they will not be able to board their flight.
