Question about honeymoon after marriage...

Hey all,

i was wondering. After my fiancee and i marry, (she's coming on a K1), would we be able to take a cruise for our honeymoon? We wanted to take a week long mexican carnival cruise. Would she be able to do that? I know the rules are a little different on cruise ships, but we are not sure.

Any info is appreciated!

^So even though a passport is not needed for a cruise ship to mexico, she cannot do it? My sister and her family just got back from one and they went onshore at different ports in mexico and even rented a jeep to cruise around in for a few hours while at port, and none of them had to have a passport...only the cruise ship registry ID card.

I am confused as to whether or not a cruise ship is considered leaving the country if no passport is needed.

They just recently announced that the new rules for Americans going to Bahamas, Mexico and Canada will need passports. It used to be you just needed a drivers license or birth certificate, but since the tightening of the immigration laws thats all changed. Good luck

That applies to Cruise ships, Airlplane, etc.

Not having a passport for a cruise ship is irrelevant here. The thing is, your fiancee CANNOT leave the US after marriage until she gets her greencard ( unless she applies for advance parole which can be included with the AOS application) . If she leaves outside the US without both ,you will have to start the process all over again. You may want to make other honeymoon plans which do not include leaving the US.

Goodluck

Quick question... Not really connected with Mexico question of Op.

I have my green card right now. I want to go to bahamas for a vacation. I do have my P.I. passport. I plan to fly to bahamas. I know greencard is enough for me to enter Bahamas. If Bahamas requries passport, do i need to get a visa to enter Bahamas since I'm not yet a US citizen?

thats true...you need to bring your passport (for USC) and passport and GC (for non-USC) before they will let you board the ship...or your fiancee will not need GC if she will have an unexpired US visa (but since shes holding a K1...its valid for one entry only)... and also..some port will ask for an ID (DL or GC) before you can tour the island...they will check if the name match with the card that the cruise ship will give you...

just went to a cruise last May 2009.
