Strange K1 Visa -> passport issue

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The US consulate in Russia has received the docs from the NVC and is getting ready to send my fiance things. We both just realized that her russian travel passport will expire in May 2013. My question: Does she need to get another travel passport and use the new one for form 156, or can she put down the one that will expire? We do not want to delay a whole month in getting another travel passport, she plans on leaving right after her interview, which we are hoping to be in november. Any kind of insight would be very helpful and i apologize in advance if i posted in the wrong section.

Her current passport might make it to the interview date but to fly to US or any country, you need to have at least 6 mons prior to expiration date. I say get the renewal now while you wait for the packet. Good luck!

Can you make some copies ( everything) from the old passport and then renew it? Go to the interview with the new one and simply explain that is was due to expire and you had no choice? Seems to me a valid passport is a valid passport. However if waiting a whole month is a simpler solution, use skype for awhile.

So you think its ok to put in the information on the 156 for the old one, but bring new one?

I would consult with other people from Russia on the Regional forums http://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/98-russia-ukraine-and-belarus/

Just to make sure if something can be done to prevent them to keeping her old passport and sort this out.

BTW happy that they didn't lose your file after all
