Citizenship through Naturalization

Naturalization is the process by which citizenship is given to foreign citizens or nationals who have fulfilled the requirements set by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

The general requirements for naturalization include:

  • Good moral character
  • An ability to read, write, and speak English
  • Knowledge and understanding of U.S. history and government
  • Residence in a particular USCIS district prior to filing
  • A period of continuous residence and physical presence in the U.S.
  • Favorable disposition toward the United States
  • Attachment to the principles of the U.S. Constitution

Becoming a U.S. citizen offers many more benefits than having a green card. As a naturalized citizen, you will be able to stay in the country as long as you like. You will have the same civil rights and privileges as all other U.S. citizens.

Becoming a citizen offers many other advantages, including:

  • The right to vote
  • Access to jobs and social services not available to non-citizens
  • Strong and permanent protections against deportation
  • Overall peace of mind
  • The ability to run for public office
  • Eligibility for federal employment and benefits
  • Being able to sponsor your family for green cards
  • Becoming eligible for university scholarships or government grants
  • Benefitting from U.S. tax laws
  • Ability to take long trips outside the United States
  • Becoming a U.S. passport holder
