In the event that you do not have a valid passport, birth certificate, or naturalization papers, an Affidavit of Citizenship is sufficient as a last resort. Make sure that you check with the proper authorities before you use a Citizenship Affidavit upon entering another country.
Proper documentation is required for an Affidavit of Citizenship oath:
• Birth Certificate
• Drivers License
• Social Security Card
• School Identification
• Naturalization Papers
An Affidavit of Citizenship must be declared and sworn to before a notary public. Keep all documentation together in a file and ready to present to authorities when visiting foreign countries.
