To fly to the Bahamas from the US as a US citizen, you need a passport in any event, and you do not need any other ID. So a driver's license isn't particularly helpful for this trip, and its being expired is not a problem.

The consulate here is not giving me a solid reason why I need a more costly passport book. The relevant federal regulation is found at 8 CFR 235.1. It starts by saying that everyone needs a passport unless they qualify for one of several exceptions, found both in that part and at 22 CFR 53.2. In addition to the exception for a passport card, there are ...

The whole point of a passport is to act as ID when you're travelling! If you have a passport, you don't need anything else.

Contact the consulate immediately and request that your passport be returned. The letter you got when your application was put into administrative processing should have the correct contact information. Otherwise check the US embassy website for your country for contact information. You also could have (and possibly should have) requested it to be returned ...

The problem has two layers. Being allowed into the country -- they are US citizens. They cannot be refused entry into the US. However, immigration can detain them as long as is necessary to confirm their citizenship. The passport card should cover this task, however you are technically are violating the law (as phoog discusses at length). Expect ...

Yes, they are correct. The passport card was designed for land and sea ports of entry and is not allowed for international air travel. Passport card page from the State Department

You probably do not need to provide a reason, just proof of upcoming travel. According to Get urgent, express, weekend and statutory holiday emergency passport service in Canada: You must provide proof of travel for urgent service. You may also need to provide it for express service. The "express pick-up" fee is CAN$50 and the processing time is 2-9 ...

Whether the word "apartment" is spelled out or abbreviated is entirely unimportant. You can use whichever spelling you prefer.

As a former Ukrainian citizen, my citizenship was revoked automatically as soon as I received my British citizenship. That's not true. Ukraine does not revoke citizenship automatically. You should request for renouncing of your Ukrainian citizenship in the Embassy of Ukraine in the UK. If you did not request it, then you are treated as a citizen of Ukraine....

In October, 2018, as we approached the border of Quebec, I suddenly realized my husband's passport had expired a year before. We went to the US Custom's office at the Maine border and they told him as long as he was born in the USA, he could travel into Canada on an expired passport, and return to the US. They didn't even look at his passport. On the ...

Does the new passport also come with visas stamped? No. Just out of curiosity, how did you expect that to work? A passport is issued by your own country and the visa are not, those are issued by other countries. So how would your country organize that for you and why should they? If not, then do I travel with the old (damaged) passport with valid ...

The given link implies yes, since any traveler who has had issues in the past and are rejected at the gate: will be sent to a manned passport check to have their identity and passport checked There is no explicit statement stating that certain categories of persons should not use these gates.

No, you cannot cross the Schengen external border without a valid travel document. The only exception to this is EU/EEA citizens carrying national ID cards. For a Cameroon passport you'll also need a visa.

No, unfortunately this is not possible. Even if you have residency in the UK, as a Cameroonian citizen you'll need a valid Schengen visa to visit Paris, and for that you need a passport. In the longer term, if you've held ILR for more than a year you might be eligible to become a British citizen and get a UK passport, which would save a lot of visa ...

Yes, you can travel. Your passport needs to be valid throughout your stay in the UK. There is no requirement for it to be valid beyond that. You must have a valid passport to enter the UK. It should be valid for the whole of your stay. gov.uk But if there is any transit country in between that can have its own rules.

First, you can apply for an expedited passport, as noted in comments. Even regular service is quite prompt. The last time I renewed my passport was nearly ten years ago, but I did not take the expedited service and it arrived in just over two weeks nonetheless. The passport service is fairly prompt, though things may be different now, I suppose. If you ...

Today I had a bad episode. I am Italian citizen with an Italian ID and I was travelling from the Edinburgh, UK (where I live) to Alicante, Spain, and the police (at the spot where passports are checked) would not let me in! They asked to see another document, so I showed my driving license, the only other thing I had, but it still was not enough. The ...

Your question is a little unclear, so let's try to answer what I believe you are asking, staring with "Can someone be a resident of more than one country?". In principle to be a 'resident' of somewhere means that you live there, and in most cases it is assumed that you live in only one place. But that doesn't have to be the case legally. Every country has ...

To return to the USA, you need only the green card. A passport is not required - at least the USA does not require it, and Timatic (the database which airlines use to verify passenger travel documents) makes it clear that green card holders don't need a passport to enter the USA, so the airline should not ask for one. But watch out for new check-in agents ...

a Saudi official may see from passport that I live in Germany How would he see that? You're a German citizen, you don't need visas or anything, so there should be nothing in the Saudi passport that links you to Germany. The main exception here is if you have renewed your Saudi passport in Germany, in which case this may be stated in the passport and lead ...

Not just immigration authorities check your passports. Many of the people who check your passports don't stamp them, so it's fine to show whichever is most useful in different contexts. Let's say you're traveling from A to B to C while holding passports of D and E. In A, when you get to the airport, the airline wants to be sure you won't get turned back by ...
