7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I misplaced my passport a couple years ago and havent bothered to get a new one..

I was wondering if its needed at any point in the N-400 process as I will be applying in April.

I still have a photocopy of the main page and my K-1 visa.

thanks.

Typically foreign passport is needed to look at to see entry/exit stamps.

One note, some countries require your old passport to invalidate it when you apply for a visitor's visa for US passport.

I know of one person from China who went through hell trying to get a Chinese visa in their American passport, their old Chinese passport was lost.

If you lost your passport, there is no way to get it back, is there? And if they wanted to look at your old passport in order to check the entry stamps to the US, a new passport wouldn't do, would it.

Damn . . . I forgot your question . . .


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.

Did you file anything anywhere to say that it was lost? With the Consulate or Passport office or the police (if it was stolen?). If yes, you could always bring that evidence with you to back up your statement that you have no passport. The reason they wish to see the passport is to verify your statements about time spent out of the US as most places do stamp passports. Canadians are in an interesting situation as until recently passports weren't required for cross border travelling between US and Canada and even when they are they are almost never stamped so there is no evidence contained in the passport of such travel. If you don't have it, you don't have it but if you have anything that documents its loss, bring that - just in case. At the very least you should have notified the issuing country of its loss so they could invalidate it in case someone tried to use it fraudulently.

never filed anything because I was hoping it was in my house somewhere, but I moved and its still nowhere to be found. Its ben over 2 years but I guess I could go to the Canadian Consulate in Dallas. I think I may have left it in a photocopier in Kinkos. thats the only time Ive ever used it other then getting my K1 visa.
