Expired Nepalese passport... renew or wait for US citizenship?

I got US Citizenship quite a while ago so I don't remember the details, but you might have to submit information of your Nepali passport when you are applying for citizenship. I am not sure if you will need to have a valid passport. In any case, if you don't need a valid passport to apply for US citizenship then there is no point renewing the passport.

There is no point in using the Nepali passport illegally after you get your US passport. How much would you even save by doing so? I recall a thread about someone who used Nepali passport to fly to Nepal to save the visa fee. But when the time came to come back to the US, he was unsure of how to use his US passport since his Nepali passport didn't have visa to the US. It's not worth keeping it.

There is not much priviledge for ex nepali citizens except for the fact that you will be able to get prolonged visa for 10 years for about $500. I forgot the term for it but you can even engage in some business with that card.

Good luck
