Hi.

 

My brother just arrived at california where my sister lives.. he and his wife has immigrant visa they applied and paid the green card fee before they left their native country. After a week at my sister, would it be possible if he can travel to mimnesota without having the greencard yet.?

Thanks.

Not true. He can fly domestically using an overseas passport. He needs government-issued ID, but it doesn’t have to be issued in this country. How do you think tourists take flights within this country?

When I have immigrants to USA I have been told that I will need status issued id to book a ticket or go some where never been told to show my passport but you are right tourists might show the passport with visa ,

Then you have been given incorrect information. A state-issued ID is NOT required to fly domestically. I previously flew from Las Vegas to Seattle showing only my UK drivers license. That was before I lived here. You need to show “government-issued ID” but it can be from any government, here or overseas. Even green card holders don’t need to show their GC or state ID to fly domestically. They can show their overseas passport, if they wish. The presence or absence of a visa is irrelevant. On a domestic flight you will not come into contact with border patrol.
