Travel from US with Greencard or..?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a question and my searches here and google have turned up ambiguous, at best.

If we want to travel to the UK(or anywhere that allows Americans to enter without a visa), does my wife need to secure a travel visa or is the green card enough?

Thanks!

She can travel on just the green card and her passport, at least to the UK. Just be sure to check other countries' rules for US citizens/LPRs before you go.

Not to the UK she cannot... A greencard gives her visa free travel to Canada, Mexico and SOME Carribean Islands... and that is all... Otherwise regular visa rules govern based on her country of citizenship...

National Philippines (PH) /Residence U.S.A. (US)

Destination United Kingdom (Great Britain) (GB)

Passport required.

- Passport and/or passport replacing documents must be valid

for the period of intended stay.

Visa required.

Depends on what passport she holds and what country you plan to visit. My wife needs a visa to go to European countries even though she has a green card. Delta airlines has a good tool on it's website for finding this info.

I thought I remembered that US LPRs did not need visas to get into the UK. Sounds like I don't have a very up-to-date memory...!

Maybe changed when the UK became partial members of ther EU
