Limited Term License Information
Attention all visiting and resident Non-U.S. Citizens:
Beginning Monday May 22, 2017, in accordance with Alaska Statute 28.15.101(d), the Alaska DMV will match the expiration date of your Alaska driver’s license and/or identification card with the expiration date of your authorized stay in the United States. DMV will use the federal Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) Program to verify your immigration information.
This means the expiration date of your Alaska driver’s license and/or identification card will match the expiration date of the immigration status document issued to you by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services branch of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (USCIS/DHS).
Please be prepared to present your immigration documents each time you apply for an original, duplicate, or renewal of your Alaska driver’s license and/or identification card.
If you have become a U.S. Citizen since your last Alaska driver’s license or identification card was issued, please be prepared to bring your unexpired U.S. Passport or Passport Card, or Certificate of Naturalization.
