Citizenship and Naturalization

The United States is a nation of immigrants. To become a citizen of the United States, a person must be born within the U.S. or obtain it through the process of naturalization. Any child (18 years of age or younger) adopted by a U.S. citizen is granted citizenship immediately. This is according to the Child Citizenship Act which was passed by congress in 2000.

Once a person has become a lawful permanent resident of the U.S. they can then apply to become a U.S. citizen and go through the naturalization process. The naturalization process consists of:

1. Complete your application for naturalization (N-400) and get photographed.

2. Fingerprinting interview.

3. Interview, including English and Civics test.

4. Take the Oath of Allegiance.

5. Receive a Certificate of Naturalization.
