US Passport renewal for child
« on: March 22, 2016, 08:28:39 PM »
Hello,
My 4 year old son has dual citizenship and both a US and UK passport. May will be 2 years that we've been here in the UK and his US passport is due to expire in October. I don't have his US birth certificate here, its back in the US and I won't be able to get it until June when I go home to visit.
Can I apply for the renewal in June when I come back? Or should I just let him use his UK passport for future travel?

Also, do we need to all go down to London to renew?
Apr 2010 First visit to the UK

You have to go to either the embassy or a consulate to renew, so if Edinburgh is closer, that's an option.

I wouldn't think you need his birth certificate as he already has a passport?

He has to use his US passport to enter and exit the US, so if you'll have return trips home, I would renew it.

I would renew his USA passport when you are in the states, so much easier
