Cruise to somewhere within the US

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I know this has probably posted a bunch of times but the ones I've checked either included flying there or going to countries outside of the US...

My fiance's mothers birthday is coming up and her children wants to bring her on a cruise and of course I want to come along but fear I'm not allowed. This will be after we're married, not sure if it will be before or after we've filed for AOS and AP.

I know that if the cruise is going to somewhere in the US (like Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico) and doesn't stop at an international port like Bahamas or elsewhere on the way there I'm fine. And it shouldn't be a problem getting into the US again right? But if it would stop at Bahamas, even if I'm not getting off the boat I could get in trouble going through customs on the way back right?

Thank you for your answers. Even though I have a feeling I can't go, I at least don't want to think "What if I could have gone?".

US Citizens can go on closed loops cruises and that visit other countries and they don't need a passport, only Driver LIcenses and Birth Certificate.

I am not sure the rules on for a K1 on CLosed Loop. YOu can file for emergency AP as soon as you hit USA and see if it's approved.

They don't need both the DL and BC right? I already have a US Driver's license valid until 2016 and I think I only used my DL to fly to Hawaii when I was there as an Au Pair.

That I don't know the answer. I know a few years ago we took a cruise and my wife couldn't find her Greencard and she used her DL and Philippines Passport or Philippines BC as ID. But this was a few years ago and I don't know if that would work with a K1.
