Just looking for a little advice about a passport application and travelling. I currently live in the UK, and I am a British citizen. Since my father is an American citizen, I have claim to US citizenship, and recently applied for my first US passport. This would make me a dual national if my application is accepted and processed; however, the status of my application has not yet been confirmed, so I am still only a British citizen. I'm yet to know if I've even been accepted for citizenship.
I was planning on travelling to Los Angeles for a vacation next month, and as I'm yet to hear back from the US embassy, I was planning to travel on my UK passport like I normally do, although I have been told there might be problems with immigration when I try to enter the US, as I have a pending US passport application that could mean I gain US citizenship in the near future. Does anyone have any experience with this or know if I will be fine travelling on my UK passport? I assumed it would be okay since I'm not yet a dual national, but I've read different things. I'm not sure if it would show up on the system that I've applied for a US passport when they scan my British passport.
