Move your mouse over the circled ? just above the drop-down. It'll tell you: If you have been issued one of these documents from another country, but you do not remember the passport number or national identification card number and the year of expiration answer "UNKNOWN" in the passport number field and four zeros "0000" in the year of expiration field.

This is a common situation, and it's generally no problem. I'll use A for the country you're in, and B for the country you're going to, but all the "flows" described here work equally well if you want to use your B passport to go to a third country. Case 1: Same name, dual citizenship OK If you have the same name in both passports (that is, same first ...

You should seek competent legal advice from someone with experience handling asylum cases, which may include local immigrant legal-aid organizations. Even with permanent residency, traveling back home or even using the passport of the country you are claiming protection from can put your status at risk: If your travel abroad suggests that you no longer ...

The Dutch government does not have any special authority to declare you to be (or not to be) a citizen of Belgium. Based on what you tell, it seems likely that the Dutch authorities had you registered as a dual Dutch-Belgian national based on your parents saying so when you were born -- apparently your father was unaware that Belgian nationality law had ...

Once your friend has overstayed a VWP visit once he is forever barred from entering under the VWP again, no matter which passport he is using. The only way to be readmitted in this situation is indeed to apply for a visa in advance. It probably doesn't matter much which of the two passports he applies for the visa with; but he will need to be honest about ...

I would like to know if dual nationality US citizen should hand in both passports when entering USA There's nothing requiring a US citizen to show foreign passports on entering the US, or even to mention other nationalities. As mentioned in other answers, there is a US law requiring you to "bear" a US passport when you enter the US, which strongly implies ...

No, this would be illegal. Voluntarily naturalizing in another country results in automatic loss of Chinese citizenship. You need to contact your local Chinese embassy and obtain the proper visa. The question mentioned by Traveller provides an overview of how you might or might not get caught trying to sneak back into China with an invalid passport. Don't ...

7 weeks should be enough time for a new passport. I would suggest you contact your local US consulate immediately and get the process started, letting them know of your time constraint. There are likely to be ways to expedite the process if necessary, but I don't think it will be necessary. As for the agency, I would just explain to them that you have ...

From the ESTA Online Help: What if I have dual citizenship, but my non-VWP passport is expired or I do not have a passport for that country? If you have any additional passports, please enter the most recent passport information, even if that passport is expired. If you are a dual citizen but do not have a passport from another country, select the ...

Do not show your Japanese passport in the US. None of their business. Do not show your US passport in Japan. You would lose you Japanese citizenship. As others said, you cannot be denied entry in the US. Also, you have to enter the US with your US passport.

TL;DR: You will need a visa You must use a British passport in order to travel visa-free, which takes 6 weeks to issue, with no expedited service being available for first-time adult applicants. So your only hope is getting an appointment at the US embassy as soon as possible and obtaining a B1 visa. Also, do not, absolutely do NOT, tell US officials you'...

Hire a Texas lawyer and ask their opinion. You may be able to deal with the offences in absentia, or get the warrants revoked with an agreement to appear on a particular date. Whether you can or not, a Texas lawyer is the only person who can give competent advice.

As Robert Columbia mentioned, voluntarily naturalizing in a foreign country results in automatic loss of Chinese (PRC) citizenship (but not ROC nationality; I'll assume you are talking about the PRC), assuming you are not a resident of Hong Kong or Macau. Since you are no longer a Chinese citizen, you can no longer use your Chinese passport as proof of ...

You are actually showing your passport to several different officials. The airline. They will check your passport at check-in time to insure that you have the right to enter the country you are flying to. That is because under international treaties, if an airline delivers you to a country that you do not have permission to enter, they are legally obliged ...

A US/Swedish dual national transited UK immigration controls on his US passport. After a brief landing interview, the IO issued Indefinite Leave to Remain along with a handwritten note that the holder was a dual national. This was a mistake on the IO's part. Sometimes this happens; I have seen it personally about twice, once in London and once in Moscow ...

No. However, you will need to travel to the US using your US passport. From the Official ESTA Application website: Do I need to apply for an ESTA if...? I am a U.S. Citizen with dual citizenship in a VWP country? U.S. Citizens are not required to have an ESTA and are required to use their U.S. passport to travel to the U.S.

What you have heard is completely untrue. Countries issue passports to their citizens abroad all the time, and those citizens use those passports to return to the country of issue. If what you have heard were true, it would be impossible for countries to issue passports at their consulates abroad, or to mail them to their citizens abroad. It wouldn't make ...

Legally, she can enter the US with her US passport (since it will not yet have expired), but she will need to renew it before leaving: Except as otherwise provided by the President and subject to such limitations and exceptions as the President may authorize and prescribe, it shall be unlawful for any citizen of the United States to depart from or enter, ...

I just checked the processing times for a US passport application at a few embassies: London, approximately four weeks (faster service at consulates general) Warsaw, five to ten business days Prague, eight to ten business days Rome, approximately three weeks I just checked the appointment offerings in London as an example, and they have 38 spots open ...

are the two connected and if I were to enter the US again will I be stopped and arrested? There is probably no way to know for certain. CBP has been experimenting with facial recognition technology; they might match the passport photos. They might have a data sharing agreement with Japan that would allow them to match your passports using other ...

Don't worry about it. I have been doing this for years. The only reason to be concerned about having your US departure recorded correctly is to ensure that the US does not record you as an overstayer. But since you're a US citizen, you cannot overstay. The law concerning US citizens entering and leaving the US does not actually require you to use a US ...

If you are a US citizen, regardless of what other citizenships you might have, you can enter the US and do whatever you want, for as long as you want, without any kind of visa. Just renew your US passport and use it to enter the US. (If you've previously traveled to the US on your Canadian passport, technically that was illegal. It doesn't have any ...

No. A US visa can not be transferred to any other passport. But if an expired passport contains it and there is a new passport the same visa can be used after meeting certain conditions listed below. My old passport has already expired. My visa to travel to the United States is still valid but in my expired passport. Do I need to apply for a new visa with ...

Because of your dual citizenship, you are in the position of being able to effectively ignore the border control aspects of Brexit. No matter what happens, you will still have the right to enter both the UK and the EU without restrictions. The only thing that could change this is if Ireland chooses to leave the EU, too. This does not seem likely at this ...

As a US Citizen - which is what gives you the right to a US Passport, you can stay indefinitely in the US. You are not even required to have a US passport, although that makes it easier to enter the United States. Your passport is valid the day you arrive, so there should not be any problem. You could be coming back to renew your passport as I suggest you do,...

China will not issue a visa to a child with a Chinese national parent, as the child is considered to be a Chinese national. China does not allow dual citizenship, and will not issue a full Chinese passport either. You should apply for a Chinese Travel Document, which looks similar to a passport and will allow the child to enter and exit China. It is valid ...

It sounds like the IO went above and beyond, with better service than the traveler could rationally have expected in advance -- but I can't see anything wrong about the outcome. The EU/EEA freedom of movement rights apply to a person, not to a particular passport. Once the IO was convinced that the traveler was indeed an EU citizen, it may not have been ...

Note: this is based on what I have read online, I don't have personal experiance. AIUI A foreign passport is on the official list of acceptable ID for the TSA. TSA is not immigration. They would not normally have a reason to be interested in immigration status and because of the way US visa's work not having a current visa does not imply a forigner doesn'...
