I'm in Omaha, NE. I have a flight at 6 tomorrow to Baltimore. I lost my wallet yesterday, and looked all over for it. I'll continue my search today, but I want to know what I can do in the next 36 hours to get a picture ID? Is there anyway I would be able to board the plane without a picture ID? I think I can get my parents to overnight me my passport, any other solutions for now?

Thanks.

Get an ID at the DMV, the DMV gives out temporary ones until real ones are mailed to your home.

DMV should give you a new DL immediately after you wait in line. I've never hasd to have one mailed to me... But in Nebraska, maybe they have to wait to have the file developed and then take it to kinkos to have it laminated and.... ;)

Just bring some mail like a utility bill or something to show you live wher eyou say you live.. They shoudl have an old picture on file though I would think

Yes.

I would get the passport overnighted.

They should be up to date and have your info on file. If not, then you probally need a SS card and or birth certificate.

Overnight the passport then. Or, start making a cardboard sign and hit the freeway. =]

You can fly without an ID. But going on the flight alone, you will be singled out and subject to a lot of scrutiny. To save the hassle it would be worth the money to overnight the passport.

I don;t think you can. Everytime I go through the airport they make everyone take out a picture ID and match the ID to the ticket. There might be a way to get through by saying, "I lost my wallet/ID" but they will probably pull you into another room and run something.

Just print this out with a color printer: Replacement ID, grab a laminator @ your local office store & you're all set.

(Seriously though, sorry about your predicament, hope you find your billfold)
