Well, sort of. My trip to Turkey and Hong Kong starts next week, and my US passport expires in early February. Most countries require at least six months of passport validity, which I don’t have with my US passport. I was planning on getting it renewed before the trip, but I haven’t had time, so I guess I’ll do it when I get back.
Instead I’ll be using my German passport for entering Turkey and Hong Kong. I believe I have to use my US passport to re-enter the US, but of course I don’t need six months of validity to do that. Anyway, this is the first time I’ll be leaving the US without legally being able to use my US passport to enter other countries. Ah, the joys of dual citizenship.
I’m not overlooking anything here, am I? As some of you may recall, I’m not very good with passports. 😉
Either way, I’m certain my United buddies at TPA will be beyond confused when I hand them my German passport to check-in.
