Lost J-1 Visa and passport

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am currently filling out the AOS application for myself and my husband. He arrived here as a student on a J-1 Visa and overstayed. My husband seemed to have lost his Expired J-1 visa and his passport. He does have his I-94 and DS - 2019 which showed he arrived on a valid visa. My question is, will USCIS accept this as enough documentation to be eligible?

Any help would be appreciated!

It is my understanding that he cannot renew his passport until he is good standing. He is not because he overstayed so the Russian Embassy will not renew. :(

Hmm... that might be a problem. You can AOS with an expired passport, but as far as I know you need a passport to AOS. Hopefully I am wrong. Does he have any other ID? He needs ID to get into the bio appt.

He has a valid domestic passport for Russia, which I think would be considered a government issues id? Its not in English though, do you know if he would need a notarized translation of it?
