Don’t travel without your U.S. Passport (2023)

I am a dual citizen, can I travel outside the country without my U.S. passport? While dual citizens may be able to travel abroad with alternative documentation, all U.S. citizens are required to present a U.S. passport in order to re-enter the United States. We have increasingly seen a number of individuals who recently obtained U.S. citizenship travel outside the country with only their naturalization certificate and/or passport of another nationality and be turned away when attempting to reenter the U.S. In order to obtain a passport abroad they must schedule an appointment at a U.S. Embassy. While we strive to provide our citizens with these essential services, it may not always be possible to accommodate same day, thus causing unforeseen delays and extra expenses to your trip. To avoid any delays, please obtain your U.S. passport prior to departing for an international trip and check the date of expiry to ensure it will be valid for the duration of your stay.
