When and what is required to Apply for ID after arrival?

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I will be truck driving when my fiance arrives from Philippines. My plan is to bring her on the truck with me. But first she must have her ID. Can we apply for her ID as soon as she arrives or do we have to have the wedding first? Thanks.

You probably have to apply for a state ID first which will require a social security number depending on the state.  My wife had a Filipino and Mexican drivers license and everyone seemed to accept those in the meantime.   Once she has a state ID and EAD I think she can also get a TWIC.

Oh ok. Then the social security number can only come after the AOS right. Shucks. That means i have to wait before getting back on the road. Thanks alot though

No you can apply for the ssn before you get married. Usually SSA says to wait two weeks.

 

She should be able to ride with you with her passport?

Have her go to the LTO office in her area and get a Philippines Drivers Licenses.  Money talks at the LTO and whom you know

The 2nd business day she arrives, print out I-94 record yourself, then apply for SSN. Check the box on the form there "Alien, allowed to work" What state will you be applying for ID in?  You will need SSN.

Yes. There was a long discussion about it recently. What that checkbox means is that K-1 allows work (with EAD) under category of (a)(6) of form I-765. Now, nobody ever files under that category, but the fact that it is legally allowed permits K-1 beneficiary apply for SSN right away, before marriage.

I suggest applying for the ID asap.  Here in California, they wanted 60 days left on my wife's I-94.  While technically doable, it requires everything to be done just about as quickly as possible.

We were not that quick.  D0h!
