Do i need to renew my passport?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My passport will be expired in Jan, and I am planning to file my N400 within this week. I have heard from somewhere that I must have a valid passport to bring to the interview, but I cannot find this instruction anywhere in the guide. Do I have to renew my passport or my driver license and green card will be enough as I.D.s.

Nope, you should not need to have a valid Passport.

The only time a passport needs to be valid is when you are issued a visa to travel to the USA, after that it only needs to be valid for international travel. Once you become a US citizen you can apply for a US Passport.


OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.

You do not need to have a valid passport. If you have a passport, any passport, you need to bring it to the interview so that they can check it for entry stamps to the US as a cross reference when determining how long you were absent from the US since becoming an LPR. Your expired passport is what they want to see, not a freshly printed one.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

How can you renew a foreign passport if underage and your biological father refuses to sign for you, but bitches that you won't let your stepchild visit him? Also, when dealing with your home countries consulate, won't even want to renew your FOREIGN passport because they consider you to be a traitor to that country by coming here.

You want to hang unto, even that expired FOREIGN passport as proof you didn't take any trips outside of the USA lasting over 24 hours, but no law that says you have to renew it. Obvious to even the most illiterate IO that you cannot leave this country without a valid passport. Depending on how paranoid your IO is, may want to see that passport to test you if you can copy those dates you did leave the country on your N-400. Secondary proof is to provide three years of pay stubs that you were in this country working and paying taxes. Sure can't be out of the country if you were working here and paying taxes.

Never even heard of the USCIS before I met my wife, but made a compulsive saver of every bit of paper as proof, even junk mail. Took awhile to get off that kick, except for my stepdaughter that is going through all that stuff now. You want paper, we got paper kind of thing. Need to be debrainwashed.
