Immigration: 1 US citizen & 1 permanent resident alien have a baby in the country of the resident alien….?
Immigration: 1 US citizen & 1 permanent resident alien have a baby in the country of the resident alien and shortly thereafter want to bring the baby back to the US. A few questions: what is the baby’s citizenship. Does an infant need a passport? If so, what country will that passport be issued by? What immigration/naturalization forms need to be filled out to legally bring that baby into the US to live permanently?
a little backgroun because I know it makes a difference: The US citizen has been a US citizen from birth.

It sounds like the child would be a U.S. Citizen. A child born in wedlock outside the U.S. On or after 11/14/86 to one alien parent and one U.S. Citizen parent is a U.S. Citizen if the U.S. Parent has been physically present in the U.S. For 5 years, at least 2 of which were after age 14.
You said that the U.S. Citizen has been a U.S. Citizen from birth, but you did not mention anything about physical presence, but it sounds like that requirement has been met.
The U.S. Does not endorse dual citizenship, but the child appears to be a dual national. The baby will need a U.S. Passport to fly home. You can register the baby’s birth at the closest U.S. Consulate or embassy.
