|How does a foreign radio amateur with a U.S. (FCC-issued) Amateur Radio license renew their license or obtain a Vanity call sign when they do not have a Social Security Number (SSN)?
Non U.S. citizens may hold FCC-issued Amateur Radio operator licenses and call signs -- including Vanity call signs. Since foreign U.S.-licensed radio amateurs do not have SSNs, foreign nationals must request a password from ULS Technical Support.
A non-citizen radio amateur can also renew or modify their FCC license online at our website but must use their FRN or request a password from ULS Technical Support Amateur License Renewals.
A foreign radio amateur holding a US license wishing to obtain a Vanity call sign must additionally request a password from ULS Technical Support which is used to access their FCC license record. online Vanity Call Sign Application
