Applying for U.S. 
Citizenship

Deciding to become a U.S. citizen is one of the most important decisions an immigrant can make.

Depending on your situation, there may be different ways to obtain citizenship:

Acquisition 

 This citizenship is obtained through U.S. citizenship parents either at birth or after birth, but before the age of 18. If one or both of your parents were a United States Citizen when you were born, you may already be a United Stated Citizen!

Naturalization

Generally, if you have lived in the United States as a permanent resident for a minimum of five years, you may be eligible to become a naturalized US citizen. Some exceptions can allow you to adjust in only three years. In addition to the mandatory years of permanent residence, to be eligible for naturalization, you must:

  • Be 18 years of age or older

  • Demonstrate the ability to write, read, and speak English

  • Demonstrate knowledge of and an understanding of U.S. history and government

  • Pledge allegiance to the United States

  • Reside continuously in the U.S. from the time that you apply for naturalization until it is granted

  • Not have permanently moved to another country while being a permanent resident of the U.S.
