Hello. Our AOS interview was cancelled due to COVID shutdown. We are still waiting for new interview date notice. Wife has lost her passport. We are trying to resolve asap but affording to embassy it will take up to 2 months to get the new passport. We have a color copy and I-94 record and everything else. Hoping we get the passport replaced before next interview appointment but if the AOS interview happens first will not having the actual passport be a problem?

Well, if the AOS interview comes up, all you can do is bring what you have along with proof that she has applied for a replacement passport.  At the AOS stage it may or may not be an issue.  Does she have any other US ID such as a DL, or AP/EAD Card to verify her identity?  Beyond that, if the replacement doesn’t come before the interview I would think the possibility of an RFE would be only thing she may face.

 

Good Luck!

Shouldn't be too much of a problem. When my wife and I went to our AOS interview in February of this year , we took both passports and State issued ID's. For the first time ever they actually preferred the state ID's over the passport. Intrigued I asked why as it seemed weird. He said I already have multiple copies of your passports in my file, I know what they look like, It gives me a chance to see if you have the same address on them, but the real reason ( And the one I think is true), is because he said the state ID's are a lot easier to throw on the copy machine and make a copy of, no flipping to Bio-Page, or trying to line up the passport correctly, just throw the ID's on the platen and press "COPY". So, state Id's with matching addresses is the preferred method of ID. At least at my USCIS office, but I am sure it is the same Nationwide.

You only need the passport if it is being used as a valid form of ID


YMMV

Thank you all!  We have her work permit and state ID. And copy of passport.. which of course they have too ...and police report on the loss of it. Hopefully we'll be fine on that. Now it's a matter of when we'll get rescheduled..

Is it necessary to refile for her work permit which expires at end of Jan? Shes not working. We just had our second baby girl and she's not going to work for a while. Should we renew the work permit in order to show at least some sort of legal status while we're waiting for green card?

 

Should we be calling to inquire about  interview if we dont get anything by end of this month? I have seen threads where folks have got new interview notices after shutdown, their original interview was around same time as ours, based on their timeline entries.

It's optional. But it's free to renew.

 

When does her state ID expire? Is it the same date as EAD expiration?
