Over one million people try to immigrate to the United States for the purpose of legally achieving American Citizenship through the U.S. Naturalization Process. On average approximately 2/3rd's of those immigrants are granted American Citizenship each year.

There are two ways of legally becoming an American Citizen:

  • Through birth: A child born inside the United States is automatically given the privileged of American Citizenship.

  • Through the process of naturalization: Naturalization is the process by which U.S. citizenship (American Citizenship) is granted to a foreign citizen or national after he or she fulfills the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) currently states that an individual may apply for U.S. Citizenship under the following conditions:

  • The applicant for US citizenship must be at least 18 years of age to apply in his/her own behalf.

  • The applicant must have been lawfully admitted to the United States in order to apply for permanent residence.

  • An applicant immediately preceding the filing of the application, he or she has been lawfully admitted for permanent residence or has resided continuously as a lawful permanent resident in the U.S. for at least 5 years prior to filing with no single absence from the United States of more than one year.

  • An applicant has been physically present in the United States for at least 30 months out of the previous five years or has resided within a state or district for at least three months.

Being eligible to undergo the Naturalization process the requires meeting specific requirements including, but not limited to:

  • A period of continuous residence and physical presence in the United States;

  • Residence in a particular USCIS District prior to filing;

  • An ability to read, write, and speak English;

  • A knowledge and understanding of U.S. history and government;

  • Good moral character;

  • Attachment to the principles of the U.S. Constitution;

  • Favorable disposition toward the United States.

Immigrants who are from Treaty Countries that serve in the U.S. Military are typically granted priority for for U.S. Citizenship. A specific number of years served in the U.S. Military are required to receive this priority. Since the 1960's many immigrants have successfully achieve U.S. Citizenship due to their U.S. Military Service from countries such as the Philippines, Mexico, Canada, Korea, Japan, and many other counties.
