Do I need an ID for National Express?

National Express demands a government-issued picture ID. A legitimate passport, national identity card, or other national state or federally issued ID with your complete name, birthday, and a photo is acceptable. If you do not have one of these, you will not be allowed to travel.

ID requirements vary depending on which country you are traveling to. It's best to check what kind of documents they require. If in doubt, ask when booking your ticket. Sometimes booking directly with the company can avoid this requirement.

Some countries may deny entry if you cannot produce adequate identification. As part of their security procedures, some countries may also request that you provide additional information about yourself by answering questions regarding your destination, purpose of travel, etc. All this information is used by customs officials to decide whether you can enter the country.

If you are denied entry into another country, there are several things that could happen next. The guard may let you go with a warning. You may be sent back to where you came from. Or you may be allowed to enter the country after providing more information or having your belongings scanned at a metal detector.

It's best to find out what kind of documents are required for entry into each country you're planning to visit.

The process takes about nine (9) months. There is no charge for this service.

In addition to the primary sources of information listed above, applicants may be required to provide secondary evidence of certain facts such as name change, address update, or birthdate confirmation. This secondary evidence may include statements from friends or family members, copies of official documents including marriage licenses and divorce decrees, and bills showing current address. Applicants should keep in mind that if they fail to provide this evidence, they may not be able to receive their national ID.
