How do I get a US passport for my baby born in India to Tibetan mother?
Question: I was visiting India and met a Tibetan woman, we spent much time together and we now have a new baby.
I came back to the US for 3 months and returning to India on February next year. I have some information on how to obtain the baby's passport such as birth certificate and records of going to the doctor. I have found her a nice apartment and have records from the owner that I rented it.
I need information on how long it takes to get the passport and how much it costs. The baby is 1 month old, when should we take her to the American embassy in Delhi?
Thanks for your help.Answer:
You can visit the American embassy as soon as you have all the required documents. There is no set wait period. You are encouraged to apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad for your child. You can apply for this and the passport for your child
at the same time as well as a Social Security card.
When you have all the documents ready, you need to schedule an interview at the embassy. You must take the following original items:
* Proof of identity and citizenship.
* Child's original birth certificate issued by the local authorities (including English translation, if applicable).
* Two photos of the child, 2" x 2" in size and taken against a light background.
* Prenatal and hospital records.
* Marriage certificate or other proof of relationship prior to the child’s conception.
* Evidence of five years of physical presence in the U.S.Passport fees
for a child include an application fee of $80 and an execution fee of $25 or $105 total. The fee for the Consular Report of Birth Abroad is $100.
