comment Flying to Germany from USA as Dual Citizen, passport help!
@Karlson: It's possible for CBP to conduct random checks of departing passengers at the gate. But it's extremely rare and I've never encountered it.

comment Quickly obtaining an ID to fly within the US
I will say that the agent will almost certainly let you through with a driver's license that's just expired. They may not even notice. It's not guaranteed, and they might point it out to you, but people not having a replacement driver's license for one that just expired happens all the time in the U.S. and is quite understandable (renewals often take too long, etc.), and it's not like the license identifies you that much less 2 days after expiring. You're not using it to drive; just to prove that you are the person named.

comment If a baby is born mid-flight, what happens visa-wise for them when they land in a foreign country, sans-passport?
"as, I discovered later, a permanent resident and not a citizen" If either you or your wife was a New Zealand citizen otherwise than by descent, your child would be automatically a New Zealand citizen at birth.

comment If a baby is born on an international flight over international waters, what nationality are they?
"So, for the majority of the world it's not relevant where a baby is actually born." That's not really true. Many countries distinguish between jus sanguinis born in the country, and jus sanguinis born outside the country. There are often different rules for each (e.g. more conditions for jus sanguinis outside the country).

In fact, very few countries are parties to the convention

"The vast majority of countries either have a jus sanguinis system" Do you know of any countries that don't have a jus sanguinis system? (except the Vatican where citizenship is ex officio)

comment Is a US visa valid without an entry stamp?
The sole purpose of a U.S. visa is for entry to the U.S. Therefore, it would be quite useless if it were not valid prior to entry.

comment Inter-US air travel on a Visa Waiver (VWP)?
"but the visa-waiver aspect won't be checked by immigration" There are some airport immigration checkpoints in areas near the Mexican border. See e.g. nbcnews.com/news/latino/…

revised Can I travel to the USA?
reverting edit, because it added information contradicting the original text. Editor added "the visa I was granted is expiring before my expected arrival date." when the message says go to the US before visa expires

comment Am I a British citizen overseas or just a UK British citizen?
"And am I a British citizen overseas or just a UK British citizen?" Where does it ask this? There's such a thing as a "British citizen", as well as "British Overseas Territories citizen", and much less commonly "British Overseas citizen", "British subject", "British National (Overseas)", and "British protected person". In general, as a British passport holder you are almost certainly a "British citizen"; unless you're connected with Hong Kong in which case you might be "British National (Overseas)".

But how do they know you are not a U.S. national if you just use another photo ID?

comment Is Puerto Rico domestic or international from the USA?
"However, foreign citizens do need a passport to travel between the two" Do you have a citation for this?
