Passport for new baby

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure where to post this...so I decided OT would be fine :innocent:

We are having a baby in late February :thumbs:

We have a family member getting married in Italy June 1st, 2008.

We thought it would be a perfect time to attend the wedding and present the newest member of our family to all our Italian family.

2 questions:

Has anyone ever traveled with a 3 month old internationally...how was it?

How quickly can you get a birth certificate, SSN and a passport for the baby??

Any help would be appreciated!

Here in PA you apply for the SSN before you ever leave the hospital, and it generally comes in 3-5 weeks. As for passports, just have your photos taken (we go to AAA because we have a membership and child passport photos are free), get an application, fill it out, have all your supporting evidence - you can have it expedited for a fee. It took us about one month to get our youngest son's passport. But someone recently had told me about delays regarding passport applications and renewals, I don't know if that's true or not.

Depending on what airline you fly, traveling with a baby isn't all that bad. They let you pre-board the plane with the elderly :P Though mine were never as young as yours will be when we traveled, they made every effort to make sure we were comfortable, they always served our kids first. If traveling with an infant, you have the option to have a seat for them, or for them to travel on your lap. I've always taken the extra seat (though it costs extra it gives you room to sprawl) - but you must make sure if you do take the seat, your car seat must be approved by the FAA.

The worst part for me personally, and my youngest was take off and landing, the poor dear hated both, was absolutely fine the rest of the way. It's the pressure in their ears, so if you are bricking it because the flight starts off badly, take some deep breaths and once you get to cruising altitude it should be all good :)

We'll also have to get the baby a passport sometime after birth. We might not travel until the baby is like 8+ months old though, but to India. We'd wait to go when the weather there is milder than the hot summer. :wacko: Just thinking about it stresses me out, a baby on a plane for that long to India!


Married since 9-18-04(All K1 visa & GC details in timeline.)

My sister took my niece to Walgreens, sat her on her shoulders and the lady took her passport pictures, it was fast painless and not very expensive.

Then when she was 12 months-old they flew to Colombia, everything was perfect going there since they also took a portable DVD player to keep her entertained and gave her a pacifier to help her relieve the pressure from the plane.

The trip coming back was a total nightmare, she cried the whole time, but 2 planes and 14 hours later, they made home ok.

We just got Naomi's passport. Took about three weeks via expedited service - there's quite a backlog right now. Birth certificate was a metter of days and the SSN arrived about two weeks after she was born. Nani travelled with Naomi recently but just on a domestic flight. They'll head over to Ethiopia later this year, though. Shouldn't be a problem.

Ok this is a topic that I have been going to post. Only mine is from the other end of things. My fiance' (we get married in about three weeks) will be having our son at the end of October. She, her son, and our son to be all will be in Ukraine. Now I know about how to register a foreign born birth of an American citizen, but when it comes time for them all to come to the states how does one get a passport for a four month old that is in a different country?

ace13 - It is difficult traveling and with a little one, it just compounds it. I really recommend that when the plane is landing and taking off, to bf the baby...it really helps with the pressure for such a little one.

Good luck!

Through the US Consulate.
