Husband got into Mexico before realizing his passport has expired.
Question: He is already in Mexico. What does he need to get back in the U.S.? He has his work permit. He arrived Monday and will be returning Friday. The border didn't realize his passport was expired and let him cross going into Mexico. What issues is he going to run into coming back and what can we do?
Answer: U.S. citizens returning home from Mexico are required to present a valid U.S. passport book, U.S. passport card, enhanced driver's license or Trusted Traveler Program Cards such NEXUS, SENTRI or FAST.
If your husband does not have any valid document that is accepted by the border control, then he can apply for an emergency passport at any U.S. embassy or consulate in Mexico or consult an agent for other options.
