Fingerprinting for Flight Attendants Returning from EVLOA

The Company recently notified APFA of updated guidance received from TSA regarding Flight Attendants returning from Extended Voluntary Leave of Absence (EVLOA) and the need to be fingerprinted. If you are returning from EVLOA and have not worked a trip or attended CQ in more than 365 days, you will be required to get fingerprinted.

If you need fingerprinting, the process will take place at your upcoming CQ training. Make sure to bring two forms of ID with you to training. At least one of the IDs must be government-issued and at least one must have a photo. Your name must match on both IDs. Acceptable forms of ID include the following:

  • Valid U.S. Passport
  • AA Employee Badge
  • Driver’s License
  • State ID Card
  • Global Entry Card
  • Military ID
  • Marriage Certificate
  • Birth Certificate
  • U.S. Visa
  • I-94
  • Certificate of Naturalization


Foreign-born U.S. citizens must provide a valid U.S. passport or DS-1350. Non-U.S. citizens must provide an Alien Registration Card (Green Card or other immigration document).

Now would also be a good time to ensure your passport, AA ID, Global Entry, and any necessary visas are current and not expired.
