My fiance's UK passport expires in 2009. If we are married and he gets his greencard, does he keep the British Passport or would he apply for an American one?

He wants to know if he should renew his passport before he moves here.

Thanks!

Green Card is not US citizenship. He cannot apply for a US passport.

After he spent 3 years as a greencard holder he can apply for US citizenship. Ones he becomes citizen he can apply for US passport. In the meantime he better renew his UK passport if he wants to travel internationally.

He would need to renew his UK passport.... you can only obtain a US passport once you're a US citizen.

A great marriage is not when the "perfect couple" comes together.

It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.

You should check this out to make sure, but I think you can still renew your UK passport from outside the country. I'm pretty sure about that.

I am not sure but he should be able to apply for new UK passport once in the US by contacting the UK Embassy / consulate. The best would be for him to contact passport services here in the UK, they should be able to give the info
