I was born in Korea, so I can’t show proof of US citizenship through a birth certificate. My US passport just expired late last year. I never got a proof of citizenship because I was a dependent just until late last year. The problem is, to renew my passport, I need identification, but I don’t have a drivers license. So they told me I needed to get an ID. So, I went in to a DPS and tried to get an ID, but they told me I needed an unexpired passport. I’m kind of stuck in the middle. Is there any way that I can one or the either some way.
The US Department of State says that, if you're applying in person for a new passport, a "fully-valid, undamaged U.S. passport (may be expired)" is enough to prove US citizenship, and a "valid or expired, undamaged U.S. passport book or passport card" is accepted as ID.
