Naturalization & Citizenship
Naturalization is the process by which a permanent resident becomes an official U.S. citizen. This typically begins with holding a green card and living in the United States exclusively for 5 consecutive years, although this requirement may be waived due to the INA 319(B) exception if you are married to a U.S. citizen stationed in a foreign country.
In order to qualify for naturalization, you must also:
- Meet English proficiency requirements.
- Demonstrate knowledge of U.S. history and government.
- Show a high standard of moral character, not participating in criminal activity of any kind.
- Affirm that you do not seek the overthrow of the U.S. government, or belong to any organization or party that stands against the U.S. government.
