We are currently living in Europe, my spouse applied for US passport renewal, we went to US embassy with the application and listed city and country where she was born.
Officer stated that we need to change the country since at the time of application the city belongs to a new country recognized by the US, or we can omit the country and just leave the city. She also stated that we will get info about this in the mail. We omitted the country and left the city only. No further info was given to us at that time.
10 days later we got the passport listing city only. 15 days later we got the pamphlet witch states following,
"Passport applicants who opt for the city or town of birth designation should be aware that they may encounter difficulties in travelling to , or obtaining visas for entry into, certain foreign countries. "
If we were aware of this at the time of the application we would list the new country without any questions. So now we are stuck with this " may encounter difficulties" over our head.
What would you do?
