AOS on expired passport

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hi

I know this has been addressed here - http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/493702-expired-passport-during-aos-interview/ but I'm not sure if this is definitive or not

mine and my wifes passport are current, but my 17 year old daughter's passport has expired and I need to know if there are any issues anticipated with arriving at the biometric appointment with her expired passport. She cant get a state ID without a current passport either so the only ID is the expired passport. I phoned USCIS and was told that I needed a current passport. I asked my lawyer who told me I didn't and then I phoned USCIS again and was told I didn't need it current. I have applied for a new passport, but my country takes up to 8 months to issue it so it could be a problem

does anyone have similar experiences?

Thank You

No direct experience, but I would like to think they would accept the passport as it identifies the person and has a photo to complare to the person standing in fornt of them. How long has the passport been expired? If less than a year then I would just go with the passport and all correspondence from the USCIS that includes your daughter--i.e. visa approval letter that indicates her passport number if possible. There must be a way to handle this as people without a GC are in limbo in teh US and if their home country's passport expires there is the only other form of ID that person has and it is not always easy to get a new passport in another country.

Good luck,

Dave

I know of a few people here on VJ who went thru the AOS with expired passports and it wasn't an issue. Your daughter cannot travel with it that's all. It is a valid form of identification.
