Booking flight for Spouse to come to the United State ( Filling out Travel Document )

29 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

My wife got her Visa and I'm currently booking a flight for her from Ho Chi Minh City to Seattle, Washington with EVA Air.  On EVA Air website it is asking me for Travel Document, do I need to fill all this out.  It did say "Only the * are mandatory."  

 

Has anyone has any experiment with this?  Will there be any problem if I book it without filling those out?  She just need to present her Boarding Pass and when come to US present custom border with paperwork right?

 

I attached an image to help what I'm talking about.

 

Thank You

Yes, you need to provide her passport and visa information to the airline.  They will need that information in order for her to fly,

Yes, you will have a problem if you don't provide the information.

 

No, she needs more than her boarding pass to fly.  The airline needs to see her passport and visa, otherwise they will not let her board.

What I mean is, if she already have her Passport and Visa, can she just bring those to them to fly.  Do I still need to fill out the Passport and Visa Information when booking a flight.  It say at the bottom Travel Visa may required, but what she have is not a Travel Visa.  It's a Immigration Visa Permanent Resident.

 

I'm a little confused filling it out.  Under Document Type do I select "Passenger Passport." and in Document Number, is that where I put her Visa Passport Number?

 

and under Country/Region of Issue, do I put Vietnam?

Thanks! Do I check No Thanks at the bottom, since it's not a Travel Visa?  But its a permanent resident visa.

Travel or Immigration visa it does not matter.   

 

You can enter the visa number -  it is one less thing they have to hand enter at the airport.

Because under Issuing Post Name in the Immigration Visa it say

US Consulate Ho Chi Minh City

 

Now I don't know if I put USA or Ho Chi Minh City for Country/Region of Issue for Passport and Visa information.

Should be Ho Chih Minh. Since she would be entering the USA, it's obviously a US visa. But they do want to know which consulate issued it.

Pre-COVID times, I flew with EVA Air for all my trips to the US.  From my experience, their check-in staff were very thorough in checking my travel documents.

 

On the booking page, under Travel Document --

  1. Select Passenger Passport for "Document Type"
  2. Enter your wife's passport number (not visa number) under "Document Number"
  3. Select Vietnam for "Country/Region of Issue"

 

For the travel visa section, EVA Air gives you the option to leave this blank.  I did and never had any issues checking in.  The staff will check your wife's CR1/IR1 visa at the counter.  They would know that it's a valid travel visa.

 

Just in case, tell your wife to also be ready to provide your US address.  Not sure if their policy differs by country of origin, but the check-in staff would ask for the US address I'd stay in before giving me my boarding passes.

My husband just recently got his visa approved and will be flying into the States from Honduras. Is this needed for ALL visa holders'? 

 

This OP's question is airline-specific.  The information required at booking would depend on your husband's choice of airline, although they would probably want his passport details too.

Thanks Chancy, it's just the information I needed.

 

Also, I will be buying her flight Ticket on EVA Air Website with a Credit Card.  But I heard EVA need to check for the physical credit card that use to purchased the ticket.  Since I can't be there, does a screen shot of the credit card good enough, or if I book online and already paid I do not need to show them the credit card?

EVA Air recommends to contact their city office prior to the day of the flight for the credit card verification procedure if needed.  Ask your wife to call their office to get clarity on what she needs to present to avoid any hassle during check-in.

 

Here are the details from their website -- https://www.evaair.com/en-global/public/credit-card-non-card-holder.html
