Dual passport travel?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just looking for clarification before traveling abroad.  As a holder of valid us and aus passport, living in USA. US department of state says must leave and enter with US passport and aus  department of home affairs says to enter and leave on the Aussie one.  So, this may sound like a ridiculous question but, exactly how does one do that? Check in for the flight leaving the US with USA passport, but then have aus passport stamped on entry in Sydney?  Show aus passport in Sydney to check in, then get in the USA citizen line coming back?  That then seems to leave the USA passport with no record of actually having been anywhere, which seems odd. Any insight appreciated.

I think you may be over thinking this a little. Just use your US passport when you enter the US and your Australian passport when you enter Australia. When you leave the US by plane you will be leaving on whatever passport you registered when buying the ticket I believe as the US doesn't have customs checks on the way out the way some countries do. I know in Thailand Thais and foreigners have to go through a passport customs check thing on the way out.
