Traveling WITHIN USA after K-1 expired

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! I have a question: is it safe to fly in the US from one state to another if my K-1 visa has already expired but it's been 4 months and we still haven't filed for AOS (please don't tell me it's bad that we haven't, I already know, something I can't control)? I mean they will look into my passport because it's the only ID I have, and they will see that the visa is expired, I can show them my marriage certificate as proof of me getting married on time, but if I tell them that I still haven't filed for AOS, will it be a problem? Has someone been in a similar situation? Thank you for your help!

When flying domestically the only reason you need to show ID is to prove that your identity matches that of the name on the airline ticket. Airline personnel look at the first page of your passport to view your photo and name - they don't look for visas so you will be fine. (Might not be a bad idea to get a state ID so you have another form of identification rather than having to carry around your passport).

Since Chiara hasn't sent off for AOS yet, she hasn't got an EAD or GC, therefore most likely cannot get a DL or ID Card.

In CA you will not be able to get a State ID. But we were told by USCIS as long as Annie traveled with her passport and a copy of the Marriage Cert, we should be fine.

A foreign government-issued photo-ID (such as driver's licence) would probably also work.

Hello,

I have travelled several times (3 times to Vegas, once to Orange County, CA & once to Indy, IN) whilst waiting for my AOS just with my passport, with no problems. They never asked for my wedding cert before and looked at my expired K-1 visa or I-94.

Have fun!

Sincerely,

Miwa's wife

If you are traveling from a US border town you might want to check what they would require from you. When you travel from airports in the "border area" (I think 25 miles from the border with Mexico) to another airport further north, there are Border Patrol officers making sure you have a valid visa and I-94 before they let you get through security. I'm not sure how they would handle and expired K1, maybe Yodrak or Ziggy would know....
