As long as you have a NOA1 from your AOS and are not leaving the US you should be fine. Just be sure to take a copy of your NOA1 and your MC with you.

is this new??? cuz we traveled without those things we were fine, we aren't going through US customs, I don't think it's needed.

AP is useless for travel within US, it’s only for travel into the US from abroad.


Unless you encounter a badass cop asking for valid immigration document, you need nothing to travel by car in the US, but just to prevent that 1% chance of getting into some problem, it is good to have passport and NOA1 with you.

Oh, it's not necessary. It's just to be on the save side. There was someone on here a couple of weeks ago, who got into an accident and didn't have their NOA1 with them and was taken into custody. Super rare though. Usually should not happen.

You have to have a valid ID with you all the time. Even when you walk your dog or whatever. Which right now is your passport.

In theory you don't need anything beside your ID to travel the states, but it's better to have the marriage license/certificate with you and the proof that you field for AOS. As others said try to avoid the border area +- 25 to 50 miles (don't remember exactly) because some regions have immigration checkpoints.

Also you can fly nationally if you want.  I used my passport to board the flights without any issue.

On a site node, I think we have some kind of white privilege because we can pass as Americans (before we start talking lol) and it's more less likely to be targeted at airports or traffic stops for "random checks".
