Passport as proof of identity

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was looking at the guide on this site for the K-1 Visa and it states that your passport must have 5 years of validity if it is to be used as proof of identity. But I didn't see this requirement on the official documentation on the USCIS website. Does anybody know the answer to this for sure?

5 or more years of initial validity.   U S passports are issued typically with 10 years of initial validity

Read carefully.  How many years between the issue date and expiration date

16 and older passport is valid for 10 years.

 

under 16 passport is valid for 5 years.

Yes.  Because there are far more adult passports issued versus children, therefore a majority of US passports have a 10 year validity

No matter what you think this says your valid US passport is fine.  Use it.
