A: You do not need to be in possession of a valid passport to be eligible for naturalization. You will need to comply with all other requirements to file the FORM N-400 with USCIS.

Good luck to you.

A: Yes. Your passport can be expired but your green card must be current.

A: Yes you can apply for naturalization even if your foreign passport is expired. It is important that your Permanent Resident card is NOT expired at the time of filing for naturalization. And you will need a VALID/unexpired Government ID when you go to the appointment to do your test, interview and oath ceremony. USCIS recently started a new, more strict procedure when reviewing Naturalization applications so I recommend doing a consultation with an experienced attorney to make sure you are not putting yourself at risk by filing for US citizenship. Best wishes!
