I am in a strange predicament. We filed for my husband's removal of conditions in June 2020. Then last year in Nov 2022, we also filed the N-400. On October 11, we received the notice for an interview for both which is scheduled for Nov 15,2023. We have a trip planned to Mexico and Mexico doesn't accept the I-797 as a valid proof of residency. We were trying to get a Mexican Visitor Visa using my husband's Indian passport and all the supporting forms but the passport becomes invalid after the interview (if we take the oath the same day as it is an option). If we take the oath, we would have to apply for a US passport which definitely would not get here on time for our travel. If we delay the oath, do we get the 10 year green card pretty soon before our trip (scheduled for Dec 16,2023)? What else can we do? We really don't know what to do at this point and we really don't want to miss the trip to Mexico. Any suggestions would be appreciated please!!
This is a guide on surrendering your Indian Passport after becoming naturalized US Citizen. Step 1: Visit this Link and fill in the form. The filled form should look something like this Sample. Pay close attention to the date formats as it varies throughout the application.After submitting the form you will be given a CKGS temporary ID. Make sure to save that in case you close the application before finishing it or get disconnected. It will be emailed to you as well. Remember your required documents/checklist will be based on the answers on this page. Your date of naturalization should be the same as listed on the naturalization certificate & not your US Passport. Step 2: Click the box for Terms & Conditions then click proceed. You will be shown payment summary on the right. Just ignore at this time & proceed with the application. Sample Step 3: Fill the Renunciation Form. Make sure to enter same details as your Indian Passport. When you are done, just click submit and review for corrections. Check the box under declaration then click proceed. Step 4: Fill the Additional Particulars Form for Renunciation. Then click submit and review for corrections. Check the box and type in the place & click proceed. Step 5: This is where you will choose the shipping options. I recommend you choose FedEx Overnight for Shipping to & From CKGS. This way you don't have to worry about their shipping instructions as they are vague and hard to understand. You do end up paying little extra($30) if you choose CKGS shipping. This is where you need to take a note of the payment summary. Your Money Order should reflect the amount shown on this screen. Once you are done click proceed. Step 6: On this screen you will need to enter the Money Order/Cashier's Check details. Once you are done click the box for Terms & Conditions & click Submit. Then you will be given a order form. & Shipping Label Print/Download for future reference. At this time online payment option is not available & In-Person services are suspended due to Corona. Step 7: Go back to my My Account. Here you will be shown all the forms/checklist that you can print. It will look some like This. Step 8: Print all the required forms/copies & mail it. I've attached a basic checklist. Don't forget to sign and attach the downloaded barcode on the envelope before mailing. Note: If you do not have your Indian Passport, a police report is required in addition to affidavit of loss. I recently did mine and my local PD has a online reporting system. I received my report under 2 hours. I hope I cleared all the confusions. If there is anything else that someone would like to add please post below. I've attached sample forms as well.
