My passport expires in 15 months, I know that it has to be valid for 6 months minimum once the visa is activated but the problem is that we are waiting for a response to an I-601 which could approved in as little as 4 month from now or when he-ll freezes over their choice not ours.

When would be a good time to renew my passport? I don't want to wait too long since there are some people that need to be advised of the change so a conflict will not arise if or when the visa is granted. If done now if at all possible due to the time remaining, the passport would not become a problem later unless the process drags on beyond the 4 year mark. If we wait how long should we wait since each day is day closer to the day we receive a reply regarding our future. I can get the passport the next day; that is not a problem, the problem is not getting it in time to advise USCIS of the change because we have no clue as to when we will be told the results of the adjudication process.

Passport good for 15 months

Must be valid for 6 months

Leaving 9 months

Date of visa issuance ??????????

Who should be advised of the new passport sine we are in adjudication in Saint Albans?

I come to you since my brain is on strike and will not cooperate.

I would wait until you are closer to the 6 month time frame. It really does take about 10 days to 2 weeks to renew your passport, assuming everything is correct with the application and you can actually make the submission in person at a Passport Office so you can ensure it is all correct (ie. photograph, etc.). Possibly waiting until you have about 9 months left will give you manouevering room in either direction. If you get your visa before then, you will have plenty of time to get married and apply for AOS along with your EAD. Once you get the EAD, then you can send your passport off for renewal. If you haven't received the visa by then, then no worries - when you do get it it will go into a newly valid 5 year passport.

Perhaps by counting back how much time you expect to take after you activate the K-1 to get married and apply for AOS will give you a time frame for renewing your passport. Keeping my fingers crossed that you hear something good very, very soon.

Kathryn41, thank for your reply you are always very helpful. After reading your reply I e-mail Montreal, the following is their reply. I was not doubting your reply, I needed a second one to help me better understand yours. This morning my mind is greased lightning, quick and nothing sticks.

If I were you I'd wait until the waiver is approved and if at the time your passport is valid for less than six months I would definitely apply for a new one. Every waiver is different so maybe yours may not take that long at all. If you do change your passport simply send a copy to us so we can update your file.

Thank you

Ah, good that you got an answer from Montreal. It is always reassuring to hear what you need to know directly from the source. Good luck!

I prefer coming here first, experience and knowledge over knowledge alone.

Yesterday was one of those days that I needed to have things said many times in different ways, I didn't think Montreal would answer because they send a hugh FYI for each request for information they receive. Had there been more replies to my post I would not have gone to Montreal since I didn'texpect what I got from them.
