    "Pass through" vs "come through" vs "go through"

    Hi,
    I am confused about the usage of "Pass through" vs "come through" vs "go through". In the following sentences, which word is ok to use.

    1) I (Abc) am standing outside my friend's (xyz) house ringing the door bell and he opens the door.

    "Come in/pass through"Abc.I replied, can I "pass through the door/come through the door/come in" with the shoes on.

    2) I am outside my professor's room.

    Sir may I "come in/pass through".And I use "pass through", will i have to add the door as well or it's redundant

    3) I am giving direction to some one.

    "Pass through the door/cross the door" and take a left.

    If you are the visitor you wouldn't say Come in. You might say, "May I come in (with my shoes on)?"
