Quick question

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello I will be applying in May for USC. Ive been getting everything ready and I just had one quick question. Do I need to have my passport current when I apply or go for my interview or will my green card and state ID be ok? My passport is expiring in June and I don't want to spend the money or the time going to the embassy if I don't have to. I plan on getting a US passport as soon as I become a USC, god willing. Thanks

No law that states you need any kind of passport, unless you want to leave the country. Wife had to bring in her old and new foreign passport to verify her trips outside of the USA. Said her IO just glanced at them and said they were okay. But if you didn't claim any trips because you didn't take any trips, not required to bring in that old passport. But still good to bring it in, just in case.

Stepdaughters' passport expired shortly after she came here, her dad refused to sign for a new passport, but complained she never came down to visit him. But I did dig out her expired passport for her interview just in case, her IO didn't want to see it, but will bet you ten bucks if she didn't have it, would have caused a delay and another long trip.

I am the self proclaimed register of deeds in my household or record keeper if you want to call it that. My reason is that if any of these documents get lost, its money out of my pocket. But when she turned 21, handed her immigration file to her as part of her birthday present, now its her responsibility and expense. Could have done that at her 18th birthday, but still a lot of confusion in this country as when a child becomes an adult between 18 and 21, so played it safe.

She actually got her own US passport, ha, all I had to do was to give her a check.

Ok thank you guys. I haven't take. Any trips outside the US so I'll be ok then. I'll take my expired passport to the interview just in case.
