Hi! Sorry I just wanted to ask another question about passports.......

I am now a citizen, and my son who came over with me, and is 10 I imagine will also be one.

My question is, he is travelling to London at the end of the month for his vacation. He has a British passport, but will I need to apply for a US passport for him prior to travellling or will he be able to travel on his existing passport and green card and then apply for a US one on his return?

I mean is it imperative that I apply right now for my own US passport right now even though I am not planning on travelling anywhere until the end of the year?

Sorry for all the questions, I just didn't want to do anything that could cause my son distress when he travels.

Thanks in advance!

If your son is a citizen he must travel on an American passport.

If you are not planning on going anywhere you don't have to apply for a passport..

All you need to apply for your sons passport is a valid id, among a bunch of other documents, but a passport for you is not a requirement. I don't have the link right now but google first time passport for child and you should find what you need to know.

Though you can apply for your son's own passport, I highly recommend that you follow your current course of action to get one too. You never know when you're going to need it (free trip to Trinidad and Tobago!) and the additional ID is certainly beneficial to have just in case.

As noted above, your son cannot travel on his green card now that he is a citizen. US citizens must re-enter the US on a passport. The GC is essentially invalid, as most naturalized USCs surrender theirs at their oath ceremony.

Congratulations on becoming a citizen, by the way! :)
