Expired GC + biometrics letter

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I just got a biometrics appointment letter. I have my conditional green card (expired in April) and letter of extension (for 18 mons) and passport from my original country with my old last name (maiden name) . I don't have state ID or driver's license. Would expired green card and letter of extension be enough for that appointment?

Also, am I going to have a problem to enter the building? since there are guards checking ID's.

Thank you!

Why don't you have a state ID? Lost it or never had one?

 

I would definitely bring the passport, that's a valid form of ID. Passport + expired GC + appointment letter should be enough.

You only need 1 ID plus the green card so yes your passport will serve as ID. If it were me Id take my marriage license just in case of the passport doesn't match the green card. 

You really should get State ID or drivers license.

Thank you for reply! I just never went to DMV, had my green card and SSN card showed to employer and that was enough. Also I don't drive so I felt like I will suffer through DMV's rude people for nothing.

I will going to make a trip to the local DMV tomorrow will take all my docs with me, hopefully in the next couple weeks will get state ID.

I understand. I don't like using my green card as an ID... No one needs to know I'm not a citizen unless it's their job to know lol... so that's why I got a state ID. I use it everywhere outside of Immigration. Like when I'm buying alcohol etc.

Hehe I see, yeah state ID is really convenient! But the idea of going to DMV gives me anxiety. 2 years ago when I was getting my SSN card at the SSA office besides line being so slow, office lady was really rude like she saw an immigrant first time her life 😁
