Indian Passport Expiration after applying N400.

Recommended Posts

Hello Folks.

My GC -  5 year Anniversary = SEPTEMBER/2018.

Planning to apply N400 in JUNE/2018.

My Passport issued by India, is expiring on DECEMBER/20/2018.

1 month Travel outside USA is planned in mid OCTOBER/2018 and Return back to USA in a month by NOVEMBER/15/2018.

Q 1) Would the CBP at Port of Entry raise a concern that my Indian Passport is expiring in a month?  and create some hassle ?

Q 2) Would it be required for me to renew the Indian passport beyond DEC 2018 and keep my Indian Passport Current (without expiring), till I complete the Oath of Allegiance/Naturalization? 

  Joe F ; Attorney_22 or any one with experience on this scenario... Any thoughts?

Appreciate your expertise.

You will NOT be able to travel without a VALID passport while on Green Card.  Also N-400 processing these days are taking upwards of 6-8 months (depending on the field office), so do not count on getting the US passport before expiration of foreign passport.

My advise to you would be get your foreign passport renewed (one last time), you'll be avoiding some hassle your situation might bring.

Good Luck!
