Traveling to Puerto Rico and back

Recommended Posts


I'm a newly naturalized US citizen. I have the Certificate of Naturalization, but I don't have a US passport yet. I have a NJ driving license, but MVC still doesn't know I became American a couple of weeks ago.

I want to travel to Puerto Rico and back this month. I cannot use my non-American passport since USCIS took my green card when I naturalized. So the only option is the NJ DL. 

However, since NJ MVC doesn't know yet I am a US citizen, I wonder if I can run into a problem coming back from Puerto Rico. 

And no, I have no way to inform MVC before my flight date as they are backlogged and gave me an appointment for June.

Thank you.

Take the certificate of naturalization with you, as proof that you are a US citizen.
