  • Passport with new name; Greencard with old name!!!

    #1. I, Indian citizen in USA with US Green Card, got my middle and last name changed on Indian passport 6 months back. Now it matches with my post-marriage name.
    #2. But I had got my green card few years earlier, with my maiden (i.e. earlier) name.
    #3. Four months back I have applied for name change on green card as well, but it will likely take six more months.

    I need to travel to India in 3 weeks, and come back to US in 6 weeks thereafter. What are my option to secure travel without getting denied the departure/arrival/transit throughout the Journey? Turkey is my transit airport for 3 hours halt.

    Thank you.

    There was no need to change this on the greencard.
    As an LPR, you can continue to travel with the old name on the greencard as long as you bring a copy of the court order which authorized the name change OR your marriage certificate.
