Which ID and name should I use to travel within the states?

Hi guys.

 

I’m planning to travel from AZ to WA to visit my friend soon and trying to book the flight tickets now. 

But I’ve got stuck in the name section.

My green card is currently pending and I have my military dependent ID card. And I used my husband’s last name on both IDs

Still I have my Korean passport and on the passport, my maiden name is used. 

 

So should I use my foreign passport and use my name as shown in the passport? 

Or is it okay to use military ID with my husband’s last name? 

 

 

Thank you

I would take MDID and passport along with a copy of your AOS NOA1 and marriage license....Use your MDID as primary ID.

Your military dependent ID is federally issued and REAL ID compliant.  It is more than sufficient for travel.

Thank you all for the comments. 

Think I should bring my passport and book the tickets with the name on it. 

Of course I’m gonna bring Military ID and all NOAs from USCIS.

Good thing is I’ll have EAD/AP card in my hand before the trip :) 

 

I’ll leave a review how it goes!

If the name on the ticket is from your passport (maidens name), don't forget to bring a copy of your marriage cert. :idea:


Completed: K1/K2 (271 days) - AOS/EAD/AP (134 days) - ROC (279 days)

I've always used the name in the ID I planned to use (I was in a similar situation) as long as the ID could be used for traveling (DL, passport, global entry card)

Never had an issue
