Naturalization Frequently Asked Questions

What is naturalization?

Naturalization is the process to become a U.S. citizen if you were born outside of the United States. If you meet certain requirements, you may become a U.S. citizen either at birth or after birth. 

Am I eligible for naturalization?

U.S. citizenship can be attained either by birth or through the process of naturalization. In most cases, individuals are considered U.S. citizens if they are born within the United States or if they are born abroad to parents who are U.S. citizens. Additionally, citizenship can be acquired through derivation if an individual was under 18 years old and a lawful permanent resident when one or both of their parents went through the naturalization process, or through adoption by a U.S. citizen parent. 

Typically, you may be eligible for naturalization if you are at least 18 years old, have held permanent residency for a minimum of 5 years (or 3 years if married to a U.S. citizen), and fulfill all other necessary criteria. Alternatively, eligibility for naturalization can also be based on military service, which involves distinct requirements.
