Passport for Baby Born in US to British Citizens

by Catherine
(Atlanta, Ga, USA)

Question: Can I get a passport for our new baby born in Atlanta, GA even though we are both British citizens with B2 visas? We can only provide our UK passports and driver's license as proof of ID. Will these be acceptable documents?

Adsense: Your child's original or certified birth certificate will serve as both evidence of his or her U.S. citizenship and relationship to parents. Concerning proof of identification, the State Department requires the document to be from the same state in which you are applying.

If you apply at an Acceptance Facility and submit out-of-state primary identification, you must present a second ID, as well. The second ID must contain as much of the following information as possible: your photo, full name, date of birth, and the document issuance date.

One suggestion is that you apply for an Identification Card from the Georgia Department of Driver Services. Click the link for complete details.
