MORRISTOWN, NJ – New Jersey airline passengers who fly domestically will need passports beginning January 22, 2018, according to Morris County Clerk Ann Grossi.

Grossi said the Real I.D. Act precludes New Jersey drivers from using their driver’s license as identification for domestic travel, since NJ licenses do not meet Department of Homeland Security standards. Therefore residents 18 and older will need to obtain a passport or other TSA-approved I.D. to fly.

U.S. Post Offices will accept passport applications, and the Morris County Clerk’s office accepts applications as well.

Grossi also alerted residents to the Property Alert system.

“We have noticed many scams in which fake deeds and liens are being filed, and it’s possible to not know about these cases of fraud for years,” Grossi said. “So we launched this program on Jan. 20. Residents can sign up for free, using their block and lot number, and they will receive a notice if any kind of filing is made against their property.”
