Hello Everyone!

My wife and I would like to take a trip back to her country (Philippines) and I have a couple of questions about how this will work.

My wife got her green card but seeing how we got married she chaneged her last name. So her passport and green card names do not match. So I am wondering we need to get her passport updated right or can we use her passport and green card and just brin documantion showing we are married and why the names don't match.

Also on a side note when we go to the Philippines we were thinking of going to Japan first and stay there then go to the Philippines then come back to America. Would there be any problems if we did something like that. Not to sure how the whole travle thing goes and how it will effect my wife.

Thank you!

We traveled to Hong Kong with Lai's green card and her passport with her maiden name, and had no problems. We also went to Macau and mainland China on that trip.

Theoretically, you shouldn't have any problem. However, we know how hectic travelling is as-is. With mismatching passports, you're just asking for pain and frustration. You'll be better off if you renew the passport before going. Also, there was no need for you to tell the whole story of your life and wife.

If you can afford it, you can go to any number of countries on a single trip. Just make sure you have proper VISA to go to a certain country. You may be issued a VISA upon arrival. Or you may not. It depends on the country. Best practice: Get VISA before going.

Pro tip: Affect is the verb. Effect is the noun.

It seems reasonable to me that you would get her a new passport showing her new surname.

Also on a side note when we go to the Philippines we were thinking of going to Japan first and stay there then go to the Philippines then come back to America. Would there be any problems if we did something like that. Not to sure how the whole travle thing goes and how it will effect my wife.

There would only be a problem is your wife needs a visa to enter Japan.
