There are more folks in that thread confirming the same thing.

So if immigration is after checking in, the airline might still refuse to check him in, what with not having the ESTA thingy on his UK passport?

That's what we were told at the naturalisation ceremony...but I seem to remember if you can prove you've applied for a US PP and have a notorized copy of your nat cert it can be used for emergencies. This is what we did for our daughter as previously posted.

Correct.
Maybe he can fast-talk them? He does seem to have a way with words and influencing people.

I would wager that is ONLY in the WHTI area (Canada, Mexico etc).

Several people have posted on the immigration boards about this very issue and made considerable pains to *go get their US passport* before traveling.. it's not rocket surgery!
You have notice of the oath ceremony. You know when your travel is going to be. So what if it is hundreds of miles to the PP Authority office? One guy flew from Arizona to San Francisco so he could keep his scheduled trip.

I'm glad your daughter's thing worked out, and her situation was special.

This is the main element that still concerns me.

Perhaps he could try online check in? Putting USA as country of residence in the APIS info might get him past the ESTA hurdle and let him print a boarding pass.

Then he just needs to get past the ID checker (which his UK passport ought to do) so that he can make his case to CBP.

I figure, he has to walk, drive fly to the border, look at it as a line, dive in the water in Canada, swim out a few yards, swim back in on the USA side.

Ps When he comes out of the water, just show the certificate.

Might be best if he laminated it first.

Lamination is a must, though I think illegal, its illegal to laminate SS Card Or divers dry bag.

I hope he comes, back on & tells us he succeeded. At least we can answer the age old question, though would not try it myself, unless in an emergency.

Yeah, but it's a bit extreme telling the OP that he has to go to Germany then crash his plane into the sea...
