Traveling with green card!

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife will receive her green card soon. We plan to travel out of the country...here's the problem. Her passport doesn't have my family name yet her green card will. I thought I could book her ticket under her maidan name. However, what is the process when we go through custums?

Help me sort this out please!

Hi Dave,

I had the opposite problem. My passport has my married name, but my greencard has my maiden name. Actually everything else I have has my married name (Social Security card, driver's license, credit cards, etc...). When I travelled abroad I brought my marriage license and showed it to the immigration officer on my way back in. I had no problem. Just make sure her reservation matches the name on the passport.

Legally, your name on the tickets have to match the name on your passport. If the name on her passport is different than the name on her green card, just take a photocopy of your marriage certificate along with. Probably won't need it, but just in case.


divorced - April 2010 moved back to Ontario May 2010 and surrendered green card

PLEASE DO NOT PRIVATE MESSAGE ME OR EMAIL ME. I HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT CURRENT US IMMIGRATION PROCEDURES!!!!!
