Meeting Naturalization Requirements

There are several criteria you must meet and steps you must take to qualify for U.S. citizenship, including:

  • You are 18 years old
  • You have been a permanent resident with continuous residence in the U.S. for five years (this time requirement might be less for individuals with special circumstances)
  • You were physically in the U.S. for at least 30 months of the five-year time period
  • You lived in the district where you are applying for three months
  • You have good moral character
  • You can demonstrate knowledge of basic United States history and civics
  • You can speak, read, and write basic English
  • You are willing to show attachment to the ideals and principles of the U.S. Constitution

The process involves filing an application, attending a biometrics appointment for fingerprinting, and attending an interview with a USCIS officer, and taking a civics and English test. Some people might be able to obtain waivers from parts of the process.
