I am an Indian citizen living in the USA with a Green Card. I plan to visit India and renew my passport, and then come back to the USA with my new passport on the same round-trip ticket from the USA. Is it OK to travel out of the USA on my old passport and come back to the USA on a new passport (renewed) with the same airline (I mean same ticket)? Would the airline cause me any issue on my return back to the USA?

  • The Green Card should suffice for admittance to the USA even without any passport. (That may not work for certain transit airports.) Sep 9, 2019 at 21:38

No they won't. Just keep your cancelled passport with you too in case they ask for it.
