What identification documents are required when applying an airport-issued badge?
The same documents as listed on the most current List of Acceptable Documents of the Form I-9, found at www.uscis.gov/i-9. Your current airport-issued badge does not count as an acceptable document for our purposes.
In addition to above, U.S. citizens who were born abroad must provide one of the following:
U.S. Passport or Passport Card,
Certificate of Naturalization (N-550 or N-570),
Certificate of U.S. Citizenship (N-560 or N-561),
Certification of Report of Birth (DS-1350),
Consular Report of Birth Abroad (FS-240), or
Certification of Birth Abroad (FS-545)
All identification documents presented may not be expired or altered in any way and must be original, no photocopies.
All identification documents presented must be original, no photocopies. Any document that is expired, damaged, mutilated, altered in any way shape or form will not be accepted.
What must I do if my name has changed?
You must request "name change" in SAFE Web Portal. Applicants must provide two approved I9 documents to Badging staff with 'new name'. An original or certified copy of the marriage certificate or court documents indicating the legal name change will be a supporting document only.
Is there a grace period on the expiration date for my badge?
No. The badge expires at midnight on the morning of the date printed. If the badge isn't renewed by the end of that business day, the badge will be revoked and the applicant must restart the badging process. You may renew your badge within 60 days of expiration with a scheduled appointment, two forms of identification and a new badge application.
Can I get a refund on the lost/stolen badge fee if I find and return the badge?
Yes. Only the lost fee is refunded to the original payer with the original receipt, if the returned badge has not expired and is within 30 days of the date reported lost/stolen. Fees associated with the issuance of the new badge are not refundable.
What happens to my badge if I am no longer employed with the same company?
The badge is property of the City of Dallas Department of Aviation and, as such, must be returned to your previous employer who will return it to the airport. This is also true if you remain at Dallas Love Field but have changed employers.
