Going for interview but don't have expired passport

Recommended Posts

Going for n400 interview within a month and can't find my port of entry expired passport or i94..will this be a problem? (been here close to 20yrs).

Do you have a current passport? If so, you should be fine; take that with you and explain that you don't have your old passport.

If you don't have a current passport, then you may need to file a police report and take that with you to the interview.

Thanks for replying. I do have a my replacement passport which is current, but the expired passport I didn't care much for until I read somewhere they might need it to count how many time I was out the country?

Explain it to them was it lost was it stolen sis you report it?

If you don't have it you could maybe request your entry from CBP

20 yrs ??

"Stolen" I really didn't think so, I've moved a couple of time and never care much about it where about until now. I've been living in the US since 1996 and my GC is about to be expired.

Update...they didn't need my old passport because it was expired beyond the 5yrs rule. Only documents going back 5yrs when you filing your N400 :joy:

Good luck! You will be fine.

Just as an aside. When I did my naturalization interview, the IO was super chill and sort of hilarious. She did however, ask me for my old passport (pre biometric passport) which was old as hell. I have NO idea what she did with it. She took it to a back office out of my sight. I thought it was super odd because that passport was uber old. Maybe it had my China visa in there and wanted to verify? Who knows what these people do with things. :idea:
