Question about ids

Post by Bonono »

Hi, I read on the faq that people under 18 don't need to present a photo id when picking up a pre registered badge but the confirmation email says that photo id is required. I was planning on bringing a copy of my birth certificate because I don't have a school id, is that still ok?

I have the same question. My daughter is 16 has a learners permit but due to Covid she wasn’t allowed in person. So her id doesn’t have her picture on it. She did not receive a school if either.

I just got another confirmation email saying people 16+ have to present a photo id along with the vaccination card. My next option is my passport but I don't know if it will be acceptable if it's expired.

Minors (under the age of 18) can pick up their badge with their parent/guardian/chaperone. This is especially important this year because we also have to check vaccination cards for each individual person.

Photo ID (for badge pickup purposes) just has to be something with a picture and name and doesn't have to be government-issued (so a school ID, credit card with name and picture, etc. will work. Expired IDs are also OK and so is a photocopy of a passport.

In the worst case, a copy of a birth certificate is OK.
