USA Internal - Flight travel with expired H1B visa

Recommended Posts

Can we board flights internally within USA with expired h1b visa . I used to show my passport as valid ID proof and they used to check the visa page for validity.

Wondering whether i can do the same with expired h1b visa for me and my family members.

Well I do have USA based license, but i don't have state ids (local proofs) for my family .

 

Share your thoughts on what i can show as proof while boarding local USA flights  ?

You can travel with the passport No problem at all, Along with that just carry the Extension filed photo copy document like I797 more than enough.

No.

1. TSA does not check immigration status. Any valid foreign passport is sufficient for TSA purposes.

2. Even in the highly unlikely chance you run into a CBP checkpoint, what matters is your status; visa validity is irrelevant when you are inside the US (US visas are only for entry).
