Time limit to get passport?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi I became a US citizen in October 2018 and had surgery and recovery has been difficult. My family came over from UK to visit and it's already February. 

 

I will apply for my first US passport this Friday at the post office. I just wondered if there was a time frame ( or expiration date) you have to get the passport within after obtaining my naturalization certificate.

 

I'm probably stressing for no reason but thought I would ask.

 

Thanks guys

A rather alarming number of US citizens never get passports, so yeah, don't worry. 

At some point you will also have to go into the Social Security Office and update the status on your SSN. And depending on whether or not you got a full-term driver's license, you will want to update your status with the DMV, too!

 


 

Is your timeline updated?
