Need new Passport. Waiting for AOS.

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

My wife and I got married on the K1 Visa back in November of 2018. We filed for her AOS in January (already did the biometrics) and now we are just in the waiting game. My question is that her Brazilian passport will expire in November of this year. Are we safe to get her a new passport with the Brazilian consulate? They require her to send in her old passport I think. Is that going to effect the AOS in any negative way?

 

If she has to send in her passport and wait for the new one, what document does she need to cary to prove that she is here legally?

 

 

Thank you so much for your help!

What forms of photo ID does she have besides her Brazilian passport?

 

Utah DL/ID card?

 

EAD/AP combo card?

If you apply for renewal in person, they usually give the new passport back same day. Not sure where you’re from and if there’s any Brazilian consulates near you.

Honestly, they asked us for our IDs, not Passport. maybe depends on the officer?  Unless the passport is your only form of ID. bring it regardless.

 

In the meantime, try to renew your passport, by expediting it if you have to...it shouldn't take more than couple of weeks, a month max. Im not sure if new passports will effect anything, but if they wanna see  the K1 visa in the old one and you probably should bring both passports to interview. we gave her both passport and EAD but she was mostly writing stuff down from the EAD card, she flipped through the passport but not sure what she was looking at.
