K1 visa Airline Ticket question

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

When trying to purchase our tickets online the airline is asking for info that I'm not sure about.

 

Document type: Visa isn't even an option but there are 2 others, travel document other than passport, and Facilitation document along with several others which can't be correct. I'm assuming that other than passport is right but wth is a facilitation document?

 

Then it asks Place of issue. I'd guess that's Philippines but is a US Embassy considered the place of issue or is it really the US? It says Manila on the Visa so I'm going to put Philippines.

 

Travel Document Number: I'm guessing that this is the visa # but I found out online that the visa # isn't the number in the same place as the passport # on a passport but the number in red down at the bottom. Is the airport going to know which one to check? Does any of this even matter?

 

I'm just worried about spending 1000 bucks on a ticket then the people in the airport trying to get me on some technicality. For instance I was once almost denied a flight myself because I didn't put JR after my last name when I purchased it online but they don't give you a place for that so I wouldn't have even thought about it. After arguing about it they let me go anyway so I guess I could have fooled them huh?

Place of issue is usually referring to the passport

 

But she's not traveling to the US on her passport. It's her visa in her passport, right?

 

Or by having the visa that makes her passport good so I should just put passport as the document type?

International travel document is the passport.   A visa simply gives the holder permission to seek entry to a given country and by itself is worthless 


YMMV

Passport is good.  They will look for the visa in the passport during check-in, and also the CFO stamp.

 

Don't forget the Travel Tax .. which can be paid at the airport, online and a number of other locations.

 

TRAVEL TAX
   
    

Before exiting the Philippines (after receiving the visa and CFO sticker in your passport) there is Travel Tax to be paid.  This can be paid at the locations listed in the link below

The passport is the travel document......A visa is an entry document.

We're flying from Hong Kong to the US after taking a few days there. She wants to go to disneyland and we'll never make it the one in Anaheim so better off hitting it while we are in this area.

I've been to all the Disneylands.   Hong Kong is my favorite as an adult.  Go early it opens at 10 and closes at 8.   The lines are very bearable.  Very easy to walk. Take they MRT our ferry there. Put extra money on an octopus card and used it for your meals.  We went there while dating and she still the everyone about it.  Also try Stanley peer by taxi and ask the driver to take you the long way.  The best Filipino food is Bedina Food Trip in Kowloon/ Jordan 

 

But I digress . . . 

 

As for the flight tickets I put her Filipino passport number and dates in.  No problems.

 

If you travel from the US, once she gets her green card,  you still use her Filipino passport and most airlines have a field in the flyer profile for the gc info.
