Born in the US but hold a non-US passport?
A change in US government policy now means that anyone born in the United States is considered to be a US citizen. As a result, if you were born in the US but don’t hold a US passport, you’ll need a 'loss of nationality letter' to enter the country.
Please note that we are not able to carry passengers in these circumstances unless they have this letter, which can be obtained from the US embassy.
