Canadian Passport expires in Sept, I-751 to be processed in April

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a Canadian citizen currently living and working in America. I am married to an American and am on my green card. I need to file the I-751 to remove the conditions on my visa in late April. I will also be traveling abroad to Turkey in late April until mid May and then traveling again to Canada in August. My passport will expire in September Do I need to apply for a new passport before I travel to Canada in order to come back into America? Or, do I need to apply for a new passport before I travel to Turkey? In addition, if I get a new passport, will all my visas and stamps to work and live in America be transferred into my new passport? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

In some cases you need to have a 6 month validity on your passport for international travel, or so I've read. I'm not sure how this would work as a Canadian going to Turkey, so I'm not much help there. On the other hand, you should have no issues going to Canada in August with your passport, which won't be expired yet, and then getting back to the US as long as you have your 1-751 extension letter.

Canada will not transfer your stamps into your new passport. What stamps are you referring to exactly? I have 1 in my passport from the whole process, the entry stamp from coming over on the K-1. If you have your GC (expired or not) and eventually your extension letter, this proves you are able to live, work, and travel in the US.

You need to check what Turkay requires for Canadian travellers as that is the passport you will be using. Check to see how long it must be valid after the duration of the trip. I would assume that Canada returns your old passport like the US does. You can show people the stamps in the old passport should you need to--why you need the visas and stamps I do not understand as the visa is not needed with a GC nor is the stamp giving work authorization; the GC superseeded all of those. I would try to get a new passport sooner rather than later, as you will need one should you want to travel.

Good luck,

Dave
