11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, when i am ready to apply for my first time passport, i know that i have to take with me my Certificate of Natu. and i know that i need 2 photographs, and a vaild identifiction such as a driver's license. Ok here is the thing, i sent to renew my Driver's license. and i recieved the new License with Error on my last name. and i had to go back to the DMV and to request a new License. and the employee there issued for me a Temorary License. which is a piece of paper, and my photo not on it, now the question is. Do u think they will accept this temporary License??

it will take sometimes months to receive the License. so dont know what to do. and dont have valid ID card either.

Thanks alot.

Sometimes at oath ceremony you will be offered to apply for passport. Bring a couple passport photos, and a check to pay fee.

Don't know about your state, but in California it takes about 10 weeks to get a new driver license. Yes, you'll need to show your state-issued driver license or ID card when applying for a passport. At least here in California, you keep the old passport but they punch a hole in it. Combined with the temporary license, you have a state-issued ID. If you don't have your old license, and you don't have your Green Card anymore, you probably won't be able to get a passport. But again, it's usually only a matter of a few days, not months.


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.

Naturilization cert OR DL is acceptable.

So you dont need to send DL.

SEE: http://travel.state.gov/passport/get/first/first_830.html#step4first

You can send them your original Nat Cert without fear, they will return it along with new passport. Make a photo copy of it before sending to DOS when applying for passport.

I believe the Nat Cert has a photo bonded to it, so will serve as a photo ID when applying for passport.

You don't send anything; you need to apply in person at which time they will copy your DL right then and there. And I had a brain freeze at my last post. It takes 10 days to get a new DL in California, not 10 weeks!

Guess Wisconsin had California beat on this issue, you sign your application, stand in front of a machine, that takes your photo in color, 22 seconds later this machine spits out your license encapsulated in plastic. DMV officer asks you to check all the printing before stepping in front of that machine. But has you double check it anyway before leaving.

But it does take the USCIS about ten MONTHS to spit out a new green card.

Stepdaughter got a yellow letter requesting or demanding, depends upon how you read it to bring along her drivers' license or a state ID for her interview. New to me, as in dealing with the USCIS Milwaukee and St; Paul offices for over six years now, they never wanted to see that state ID, just their green card.

Was different with me, would drop them off first and find a place to park, when I walk in, just telling them I am joining my wife or stepdaughter. Never asked me for any kind of ID, never asked me if I was carrying a gun. Only asked me if I was carrying a cell phone or a camera.

I learned the local field office has full authority to manufacturer your certificate, but have to send off someplace to get a green card that takes forever, but know for a fact the field office determines your eligibility for the green card. Really seems like a disorganized organization to me, none of those guys would last two seconds in a corporate environment. where efficiency is measured in dollars.

Assume you need that temporary license just to get into the door, really don't feel that should be a problem. Only a secondary form of ID anyway.

But, Nick . . . the California DLs are prettier and our cheese is better anyway since it comes from happy cows. For cows to be happy, sunshine and nice weather is needed and that's where California beats Wisconsin hands down!!

I never had a problem with a driver's license, since California change the old license with a new one . this one i dont like thats why they got confused with my last name .. with the new License there's FN and LN.. so some of my last name was in the first name, but the old one was all in one column , by the way. it takes more than what u said. so far almost a month and nothing showing up. i am talking about the second one now. i dint count the first one with that error, and the lady there said if the same error happend again come back to the DMV, then that extra time.
