Travel with EAD/AP Combo Card

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Been trying to search the web for this but can't seem to find any information. I am a Canadian in the US with my AOS status pending from entering with a k1 visa. I have my EAD/AP combo card in hand and I am wanting to travel back to Canada next month. My question is does my passport have to be valid for a certain amount of time (it expires in 3 months)?? I remember when I entered the United States with my K1 visa they required it to be valid for 6 months.

Thanks for any help!!

Just my opinion, but depending on your length of travel to CA you might want to renew your Canadian passport while in Canada or before/after your travel.

It is not a good idea to let your only "valid" passport to near its expiration date when it's "validity" might be in question. Others here might have different experiences.

I was going to say if you renew in Canada it is a lot cheaper. If you renew and get it sent to you in Canada it only costs $160 as opposed to $260 if you are in the USA for a 10yr passport.

Yeah I don't think it'd be an option to renew while in Canada. I have planned to renew it as soon as I get back but I want to know if anybody thinks I'll have trouble reentering the US with my passport and advance parole if my passport is going to expire in a few months.
