Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 4 months ago

You can try to do this, but the US embassy may know that you are US citizen when you apply and if you lie, they can accuse you of fraud and not issue the visa.

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you.

Please kindly click "Finish by RATING" and choose a rating from the STARS ★★★★★. The question will NOT finish or close after you click and rate me. DON'T WORRY. It will stay OPEN after you rate me and I can continue to answer your follow up questions at no additional charge, if you have any.

The stars are very important. If you don't RATE , I receive zero credit for my time with you. Hopefully you can rate me 3 stars or more. 5 stars rating is the best!

Again, if you have additional follow up questions for me, please ask and I will be happy to clarify. Your satisfaction is my #1 goal.

Any bonus you feel I earned is always very appreciated. For any NEW questions you have in the future that you would like only me to answer, you can begin the new post with the words "FOR JEN."

follow up. is it illegal to not use your us passport? lets say you forgot it
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 4 months ago

A US citizen would need their passport to board the plane to the US. You would not be allowed to board without it.
