Traveling within the US with an expired Canadian passport

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm currently going through AOS from a K1 visa. My husband's family is traveling from San Diego to New Orleans in two weeks, and we've been super excited about the trip - until I opened my passport and realized that it's expired. It takes a minimum of 20 days to process passports in Canada, not including delivery time, and that's if everything goes well. I'm trying to find out if this counts as a reason for emergency processing at a consulate, and will be calling them Monday morning.

My question is - if I can't manage to get my passport renewed in time, can I board a flight in the US for domestic travel with an expired Canadian passport? I know that if it was a US passport, you can still use it as ID, but I can't seem to find anything about passports from other countries.

All they check in domestic flight is the name in your passport to match with the name in the ticket, that's it, no worries.

No worries. Bring your Canada ID/DL with you if it's not expired.
