Traveling domestically with EAD?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've received my EAD a few days ago, applied for SS yesterday, and I have to wait until I get the SS card to apply for a Non-driver ID... but I have to flight from NYC to Miami on the 14th.

I don't think I will have my ID by then, so I was wondering if I can use the EAD to board a plane? In theory it should be fine since it's government issued, but I wonder if the TSA officers will even know what it is, and it's not mentioned on their website. Any experiences flying with EAD?

Thanks!

Yes, use your passport and bring copies of your NOA1s in case. TSA don't check immigration status - they check identity.

Is your ticket in a different name than what is on your passport? Is the name on your ticket the same as on your EAD?

I have the same name in the passport, EAD and ticket. I wanted to avoid using the foreign passport because I've heard some people having problems with that. I just think something from the US government would be easier.

In this case it would probably make it more complicated. Use the passport.
