Re: Using a pre-purchased ticket under a different name #general

Phyllis Kramer

Toby Gass asked:
I am wondering if anyone knows the answer to the following question: If
a ticket was purchased in the name of a certain individual, did the
person have to travel under that name, or could the ticket be used with
a different name?

Toby...the US did not verify the name of anyone coming in before
1920...they only required a ticket for identification and the person
then became a legal immigrant.

I interviewed a woman who for years was afraid she'd be sent back
because she came on her sisters ticket.

Hope this helps
