Becoming a US Citizen

Did you know that you may become a U.S. citizen either at birth or after birth if you meet the requirements? What are these requirements?

You must qualify the checklist below in order to become a citizen at birth:

1. Born in the United States or certain territories or outlying possessions of the United States; and subject to the jurisdiction of the United States; OR

2. Had a parent or parents who were citizens at the time of your birth (if you were born abroad) and meet other requirements

To become a citizen after birth, you must:

1. Apply for “derived” or “acquired” citizenship through parents
2. Apply for naturalization

Most naturalization applicants are required to take a test on English and Civics specifically on U.S. history and government. You should at least know the basic history of the US.

The USCIS provides resources to help all the applicants in the preparation. You can check it out in the USCIS Naturalization Test page and get the study materials from the Citizenship Resource Center.

Meanwhile, members and veterans of the U.S. armed forces and their dependents may be eligible for special naturalization provisions. Check it out in the Citizenship for Military Personnel & Family Members page of the USCIS website.

If you want to know about Dual Citizenship, you can get the information in US State Department Services Dual Nationality website.

United States of America welcomes immigrants all over the world. USA values the contributions of immigrants who continue to enrich the country and preserve its legacy as a land of freedom and opportunity. So; if you decide to become a U.S. citizen, look at the checklist and if you qualify, apply now to become a U.S. citizen. You are expected to show your commitment to the United States and your loyalty to its Constitution. If you become a citizen of the United States of America, you will be rewarded with all the rights and privileges that are part of U.S. citizenship.
