Hi everyone, 

Our family are wondering if  my husband is allowed to go on a cruise on a permanent resident card ( united states) and will be allowed to go to bahamas and cancun for excursions and have no problem getting back on a cruise ship. We called the cruise line but i just dont trust their answer.  Did someone have this experienced yet or had any problem with this situation. We are ready to book but just scared it will be a problem. BTw, we are married and i am an american citizen and he came on a fiance visa, got married. ( just a background history).

 thanks for your input.

The issue isn't so much getting back on the ship, its getting back into USA once the ship docks back into port.  And yes a LPR can travel.  I would look into what countries can travel to the cruise countries you listed without needing a visa, assuming his passport is from Philipines.  I believe there are some that allow USA LPR entrance without problem.


You may want to update your profile and timeline so that your posts go to the correct forum.  You are still showing a K1 when indeed you are LPR status.

Usually the Cruise company will check your VISA and legal documents before letting you aboard. I would check those counties' embassy website to make sure if you need a VISA to visit or not(telling them your immigration status and passport country) 

Yes, good advice ^^^.  And getting on and off the ship for excursions is really just a matter of checking to be sure you are a passenger.  They do not go through everyone's passports and papers again.  But they do when you arrive back at port.  You go through immigration just like you would a flight.  Not quite as formal of a process, but similar.
