Passport Application Sent Same Day as Oath Ceremony

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

Yesterday I had my Oath Ceremony. I'm an American Citizen Yay !!! Finally made it.

What I also did yesterday (same day as Oath) is sent in my passport application with Naturalization Certificate etc.

I did this through my local county clerk.

It isn't too soon is it? Has anyone else done it same day and had any problems?

The reason I ask is because I know that I have to wait 10 days to update Social Security Info. Do you have to wait with Passport Application?

Thanks

Congrats! Just in time for the 4th


The content available on a site dedicated to bringing folks to America should not be promoting racial discord, euro-supremacy, discrimination based on religion , exclusion of groups from immigration based on where they were born, disenfranchisement of voters rights based on how they might vote.

Great job. The moment you ended the oath & received your certificate you were a citizen so you can do it that same day.
