Foreign National Iowa Driver's Licenses & IDs
Licenses and Non-Driver Identification Cards issued to temporary foreign nationals will be limited to the period of time the foreign national is authorized to be in the United States, not to exceed two years. The examiner or county treasurer will determine the term by reviewing Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) documents. Temporary Foreign nationals should be prepared to show their INS documentation. Commonly reviewed INS documentation includes passports with an I-94 Card and Employment Authorization Cards. Foreign exchange students should bring their I-20 form along with the passport and I-94 Card.
1) Proof of Identity
2) New Residents & Certification of Iowa Residency
3) Verification of Social Security Number - If you are a temporary foreign national who is not authorized for employment, the DOT may waive the Social Security Number requirement for a non-commercial driver's license or identification card. However, you must present your immigration documents so that the DOT can record the BCIS (INS) number in lieu of the Social Security Number.
