Enter the US with only a Japanese passport? 2019/12/30 14:32
I'm an American married to a Japanese and we're having trouble getting the paperwork needed to declare his birth, but we need to get back to the US soon. Our passport and report of birth is still pending.
Can our child to enter the US with only a Japanese passport?

You can enter and stay in USA for 90 days with a Japanese Passport. So I guess you'll have 90 days to sort it out if you travel before getting citizenship or a visa for your child.

Actually I take that back, Sorry. I do not think you can enter USA with the 90 day tourism visa waiver if you intend to stay longer than 90 days. So if this is a long term move, talk to the US embassy in Japan before traveling to US.

If this is just for a short visit to see family, then the above 90 day free entry applies.

US law requires dual citizens to enter the US with a US passport. You may be able to get away with entering on a JP passport but it's technically against the law.

Does the embassy know you need to travel soon?
