The Timeline for Naturalization

You cannot apply to become a naturalized United States until you have been a green card holder for at least five years. When enough time has passed to give you eligibility to apply for citizenship, the timeline for naturalization will be entirely dependent on the specific circumstances of your case. Though, you should expect it to take at least several months.

Eligibility Requirements

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) oversees the naturalization process. To be eligible to apply for American citizenship, you must meet several different requirements. Specifically, important eligibility requirements include the following:

  • Currently live within the United States;
  • Be a green card holder for at least the last five years;
  • Possess basic English language skills, including reading and writing;
  • Possess a basic knowledge of civics and history; and
  • Demonstrate an acceptable moral character.
