AOS Interview & Travel

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Last summer we received the potential waiver letter. Today we received an interview date for May 11. Since we got the original waiver letter, we booked a vacation that leaves May 10. I know AOS is priority so we are coordinating our trip to leave May 12, so we will be available May 11 for the interview.

My question is this. Will they take my husband's passport at the end of the interview? I don't know if they take it when he's approved or what happens. Could he use his EAD identification card to travel with? We're just going to Florida.

Some interview officers take the EAD card if they approve the AOS. I have read of others who were given an envelope and told to mail the EAD card when the greencard arrived. And others have had no mention of the EAD card.

They do not keep the passport like at a visa interview because nothing has to be stuck in the passport. He can travel with his passport or his driver license if he has one.

Thank you everyone!

He doesn't have a drivers license yet, So aside from his EAD, his passport is his only identification.

We just wanted to be sure it would be okay to fly out the next day. Could we use all our flight info and travel docs with both our names on it as evidence?

Congrats! I hope you have safe travels. My wife and I just had our AOS interview on 4/24. So, we can share from our own experience. Travel within the US is not a problem. The officer will take your husband's passport and put a seal in it. The document is then returned to you. The EAD is a federal document, so in a manner of speaking it provides identity because is provides the ability to work in the US. For your interview, make sure to take all the original documents that your submitted. They have a checklist and will go through the checklist of documents. You will also need to provide additional documents supporting a bona fide marriage: life insurance stating spouse is the beneficiary, medical insurance cards, dental insurance cards, the previous three months bank statements that show both your names, credit cards and credit card statements, utility bills in both your names (some companies only one person can be billed, so in this case, utility bills in each person's name, but with the same address), house/apt lease with both names, etc. If you need, send me a message, and I will get you our list of documents.
