In the world of international travel, a passport is essential. Not only do they allow you to cross international borders without hassle, but they also provide proof of your identity and citizenship. But what if you don’t have a passport? There are a few options open to you, depending on your situation. For example, if you are a citizen of a country that is not a member of the United Nations, you may be able to use a military id as a passport. In addition, some countries—like the United States—accept driver’s licenses as valid passports. Before traveling, make sure to check with your embassy or consulate about the best way to get your passport and visa if you don’t have a conventional passport.
What is a military id?
A military id is an identification card that is issued to members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. Military ids can be used as passports if they are valid for travel to the United States. They can also be used as identification cards when traveling outside of the United States.
How to get a military id
If you are an active duty servicemember, a veteran, or have been discharged from the military within the last six months, you can apply for a military id. This document will allow you to travel internationally and use some government services.
To apply for a military id, visit your nearest Department of Defense (DOD) branch with your original birth certificate. You will also need to provide proof of service, such as an honorable discharge certificate or copy of your DD214. You can also bring your military identification card if it has your photograph on it.
Once you have collected all of the necessary documents, head to the DOD’s Identity and Passport Services (IPS) website to begin the application process. The website will ask you to provide additional information, such as your date of birth and Social Security number. Depending on the type of ID you are applying for, you may also be required to take a picture and fill out an application form.
After completing the online application process, you will receive a notification in either email or postal mail confirming that your application has been received. If all goes according to plan, you should receive your new military id within six months.
Can a military id be used as a passport?
If you are a member of the U.S. military, your military ID may be used as a passport if it meets all the requirements for a passport.

If your military ID does not meet all the requirements for a passport, you may be able to get a certified copy of your record or an altered record that shows that you are a member of the military.
What are the different types of military ids?

What is on a military ID
A military ID is an identification card issued to members of the United States military. It typically includes the soldier’s name, photograph, rank, and service number. The ID can also contain other information, such as dates of birth and awards. A military ID can be used as a passport if it is valid for travel to any country.
How to use a military ID as a passport
If you are a member of the military, your military ID may be used as a passport. If you are not a citizen of the United States, your foreign passport may also be accepted if it has a valid visa. You will need to provide proof of citizenship or identity such as your driver’s license or birth certificate. If you do not have any identification documents, you can provide an official document from your military unit that states that you are a member of the military.
What to do if your military ID is lost or stolen
If your military ID is lost or stolen, you will need to replace it with a new one. You can do this by visiting your local military base or service branch office and filling out a replacement request form. You will also need to provide proof of identification, such as a driver’s license or passport. Your new military ID card will have a different number than the one on your old military ID.
In short, a military id can be used as a passport if it is valid and has been issued by the proper authority. If you are not sure whether your military id is valid or whether it’s been issued by the right authority, do not attempt to use it as a passport – consult with a Passport Specialist or look up the specifics on our website.
