Flying in the US on an Expired K1

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Iran

Hi, My wife came here on a K1 in June and we got married in July. Didn't realize that we had to get the SSN before we were married and now we are waiting for her EAD. Her k1 expired September 7th.

We want fly from Missouri to Miami for our honeymoon in on October 6th (today is Oct.1). Suddenly it dawned on me that we may encounter problems at the airport since all we have is her Iranian passport with the expired K-1 in it and a copy of our Marraige certificate and AOS/EAD acceptance letters.

Is this enought to travel on or will we have troubles? Anyone with similar experience please help us get in the know or put our mind to ease. Either way any assistance on this matter is so greatly appreciated.

Travel within the U.S. is no problem. There would be a problem if your wife wanted to travel outside of the U.S., without having obtained AP (Advance Parole) first or having her Green Card.

She is free to enjoy your honeymoon.

Have a great time!!!!

Agreed. She should have no problems. The airlines will check identification to ensure that she is who she says she is - thus the photo id requirement - and that the airline ticket matches the name on the identification. If she is flying with her married name, then bring along the marriage certificate to verify she is who she is. I don't know if that will be a problem or not, but someone else should be able to advise you on that. They aren't worried about checking immigration documents for internal flights. Happy honeymoon!

“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
