My daughter has double nationality, she is mexican-american and she only has her us passport, she has her two birth certificates (Mexican and American) too. We live in Mexico and are planning a trip to NYC. What documents does she need in order to travel by airplane?
Your daughter should present the valid U.S. passport at the U.S. port of entry. Hopefully, the foreign birth certificate indicates that she was born in the U.S. and not in the foreign country.
She has a U.S. passport so she should have no problem entering and traveling throughout the US.
Please note, my answers to questions do NOT create an attorney/client relationship. Only after a written agreement is entered into between the parties is an attorney/client relationship created. Additionally, the responses posted here are done so on limited information and should not be fully relied upon without an in person consultation where the entire case is reviewed and discussed in detail.
Presenting a valid (and hopefully current) U.S. Passport should be sufficient for entry into the United States at the port of entry. I notice you did not mention your status. Assuming you are not a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident, you should have a valid nonimmigrant visa in your Mexican passport to present upon arrival in the U.S. (though you will probably be required to present it prior to boarding your flight in Mexico. Enjoy NYC!
