Holiday Travel Alert

As the holiday season approaches, KM&M would like to remind all foreign nationals who are planning international travel to remember to bring their required immigration documents for a smooth re-entry to the United States. Required documentation varies depending on an individual’s status and circumstances, but may include an original I-797 Approval Notice, a valid visa, an advance parole document, a permanent resident card and/or valid enrollment in the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA). All international travelers should also carry passports that will be valid for at least six months after entering the United States.

In addition, travelers should review the expiration dates on their travel documents and schedule a visa or passport renewal appointment ahead of time if needed. Wait times for visa appointments at US embassies and consulates abroad continue to be lengthy in many countries, and visa processing during the holiday season can involve additional delays.

If you have questions about upcoming international travel, please contact an immigration attorney at KM&M.
