Citizenship and Naturalization

Citizenship and Naturalization

The US welcomes you

The United States has a long history of welcoming immigrants from all parts of the world. America values the contributions of immigrants who continue to enrich this country and preserve its legacy as a land of freedom and opportunity.

Deciding to become a U.S. citizen is one of the most important decisions in an individual’s life. If you decide to apply to become a U.S. citizen, you will be showing your commitment to the United States and your loyalty to its Constitution. In return, you are rewarded with all the rights and privileges that are part of U.S. citizenship.

How does one become a citizen?

Individuals become a US citizen either at birth or after birth. To become a citizen at birth, an individual was either born in the United States, born outside the US if both parents are US citizens and other requirements are met.

Additionally, an individual may become a U.S. citizen after birth through your parents by “deriving” citizenship from them if they naturalize or applying independently.
