visas – Reenter the US as a green card holder with a passport nearly to expire

I live in the US and have a green card. I want to take a 1 week holiday trip to Mexico in May 2021, but my foreign passport will expire in August 2021.

Will I be able to reenter the US with no issues?

In general, the US requires the passport to be valid for at least 6 months, but I don’t know if that applies to permanent residents or only visitors.

dual nationality – BREXIT: leaving the EU with a second passport

I had entered Italy before Brexit and have a long-term visa here as a British national. However, I also have a Malaysian passport and am wondering since there is no stamp in my UK passport, would it be possible for me to leave Italy using my Malaysian passport to have it stamped since there was no entry stamp in my UK passport anyway?

dual nationality – Can I enter Iran with an expired Iranian passport, while being in possession of a second passport?

Nationals of Iran are allowed to enter with an expired passport.

This is noted in Timatic, the system which airlines use to verify passenger documents prior to boarding, so you should have no trouble boarding your flight. Present your Iranian passport when you check in to your flight. (You probably will need to present both passports here due to airport transits.)

Remember that Iran does not generally recognize dual citizenship, so you should not need to show your Canadian passport to Iranian officials. You do need to bring it with you, though, because you need to show it to the airline for your return flight to Canada. Read more on traveling with two citizenships.

customs and immigration – Is this US passport damaged?

Probably best to contact your local passport-issuing authority or your nearest Embassy or Consulate. Since the passport in question is US, you can find the official list of Embassies/Consulates/Diplomatic Missions from US Embassy.gov.

Give them a call, and they’ll be more than happy to help you!

Would you consider this passport damaged?

Seems like used hand sanitizing wipes in my pocket melted front cover of my passport that was also in my pocket.
Inside of the passport is fine. Just the cover.

customs and immigration – Canadian passport holder visiting UK and Republic of Ireland

At some time post-pandemic, a family member intends to visit the UK and the Republic of Ireland. While they are a UK citizen by birth, they have been resident in Canada for many years, and only hold a Canadian passport at present.

While visiting the UK, they would like to visit Ireland (by ferry) for a few days. I understand that UK citizens can travel freely in the Common Travel Area, but ferry operator Stena Line recommend bringing some proof of citizenship(1):

British or Irish citizens travelling on our Irish Sea routes do not need a passport to travel to Britain or Ireland but are advised to take a form of identity. A valid passport, photographic driving license, International Student Card, government issued photo ID card, health insurance/social security photographic card, photographic bus/train pass or EU Citizen Identity Card will usually suffice.

The traveller has a UK birth certificate (short form), but none of the documents listed above. (They could apply for a new UK passport, but would prefer not having to go through the hassle and expense of doing so.)

If they chose to travel on their Canadian passport alone, what procedures or difficulties should they anticipate when sailing from the UK to Ireland?

Visa for Spain: do I need to translate my passport?

I am applying for a visa for Spain. I gathered all the necessary documents and made them translate.
Now I have a doubt which I was not able to clarify reading the available information on the application process and this forum: do I also need to translate my passport (issued by San Marino, which is not in the EU, and with the personal information written in Italian, English and French)? What if it contains a visa stamp (from the UK, so in English)?

I already spent thousands so don’t want to waste more if not necessary. Thank you.

air travel – How to book a United Airlines ticket if my passport doesn’t have a last name?

For US Visa puporses, it looks like you need to use your single name as “last name” and FNU as first name. FNU means “first name unknow”. See https://in.usembassy.gov/visas/nonimmigrant-visas/ FAQ section. It’s likely that United will adopt the same process since they need to communicate booking data and Visa data to US immigration authorities. However, you should call and ask them to confirm.

However, it’s likely that you will run into a lot of issues and if possible you should try to get your Indian passport fixed before you travel. https://redbus2us.com/surname-blank-in-passport-first-name-as-fnu-in-us-visa-issues-solution/
