Hi, I would like to go to my home country in November, but my problem is because my maiden name is on my passport, and my married name is on the green card. On which name should i buy the ticket if I want to avoid the problems?

Thanks

Passport name. Bring a copy of your marriage cert to explain name change for reentry to the US, just in case.

Book airline tickets under the name which is written on your passport. It has to match with the name on ticket.

Upon re-entering the States, show passport and green card with proof of legal name change (your marriage certificate).


Done with K1, AOS and ROC

I agree with the above comments - my passport is in my maiden name and my green card is in my married name. I've travelled out of the country multiple times and I've always booked my ticket in my passport name and brought my marriage certificate as proof of identity with my green card

Go with the above comments and go with the passport name but bring your green card with you to get back in the country. I made this mistake last year and put my wife's married name on our tickets to the Philippines, and it was a big hassle and some $$ money to get it changed back to the passport name so she could fly.

For international travel the name on the ticket must match the one in your passport. Bring a copy of your marriage certificate as proof of name change in case they ask for it.
