Plane tickets purchase, passport and AP Travel Documents

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I've been on the forums trying to search for an answer. 

 

My wife and I would like to visit Romania in May. We have to purchase plane tickets very soon because they're becoming really expensive. The problem is I don't know what last name I should put on her plane ticket. She has a Romanian passport with her maiden name (also the K1 Visa stamp). We applied for the AP Travel Documents end of November 2019 and received NOA in January 2020. We have not received the actual travel documents yet nor any other notifications. What should we do? 

 

Thank you!

You must use the passport name for tickets.  If the AP document name is different, then a copy of the marruage certificate will be needed to connect the name upon returning to the US.

What is the plan if you do not get AP in time.

I am intrigued, I have never heard of such insurance.

Unless there is something special in May, I would wait to plan the trip after the AP, or GC is in hand.  Your only other options is refundable tickets, or be willing to pay for a rebooking if the AP does not come in time.  @missileman already answered the tickets have to be in the name on the passport, but she should always keep a copy of the marriage certificate just in case someone checking the AP/GC asks about the name difference.

 

Good Luck!

For international travel, ticket name must match the passport.

You can buy refundable tickets, which are way more expensive, otherwise it will be a gamble.

I would definitely not buy nonrefundable tickets.

We (I work for an airline) have a deal with one of the major insurance companies where we provide a link to their website during the online flight booking process where people can purchase insurance that has a “cancel for any reason” option. You can even cancel because you’re having a bad hair day. It is very expensive however and will only provide a refund of 80% of your ticket cost. 


Timeline in brief:

Married: September 27, 2014

I-130 filed: February 5, 2016

NOA1: February 8, 2016 Nebraska

NOA2: July 21, 2016

Interview: December 6, 2016 London

As someone perpetually dissatisfied with something, I would never leave. At least, the fear of losing the ticket is keeping me in check.
