Eligibility for United States Citizenship

You can pursue citizenship if you meet the following requirements:

  • Must have a valid green card (be a permanent resident) and have lived in the United States for a minimum of five years;
  • You are married to a United States citizen and have lived in the country for at least three years;
  • You are a permanent resident, served time in the United States military, and also lived in the country for at least three years; or
  • Your spouse is a United States citizen and is being transferred internationally by the armed forces, a government entity, or a multinational company.

How the Citizenship Process Works

Before you can get citizenship, there are a number of steps you have to complete. These include:

  • You must file an application with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
  • You have to make an appointment for your biometrics where they do a background check (criminal) and take your fingerprints.
  • You will need to schedule an interview with the USCIS to discuss your background and whatever information you supplied in your application.
  • You must pass a U.S. civics test as well as an English test that shows you can read, write, and speak English.
  • You will then receive an approval or denial of your application from the USCIS.
  • If approved, you will then take your Oath of Allegiance to the United States.

Even if you have no criminal record, you can run into issues with your application. Sometimes a minor incident from your past can create concerns that need to be addressed before your interview. You should never leave off any information from your application, as even a simple mistake can mean the difference between an approval and a denial.
