How to become a Citizen of the United States

Citizens of the United States receive equal rights, duties, and benefits. This includes the freedom to reside, work, vote, and even stand for public office in the U.S. On the other hand, you will be required to promote your local community and respect the U.S. law.

Based on your circumstances, you may need to meet specific criteria to get your status as a U.S. citizen.

There are different ways to get citizenship in the United States:

  • Birthright citizenship, or citizenship through parents. This is for applicants born within the territorial limits of the U.S. or abroad to at least one U.S. citizen parent;
  • Citizenship through Naturalization. This is a process by which an eligible alien applies for citizenship and is accepted based on specific requirements;
  • By winning the Diversity Visa Program. The Green Card Lottery is held every fiscal year to randomly select eligible aliens from countries with a low rate of immigration to the U.S.

If you previously held a Green Card but you spent more than two years outside the U.S., you may have lost your status. If you wish to re-enter the country, you will need to apply for an SB-1 Returning Resident Visa.

U.S. law allows multiple citizenships. In other words, you can commit to the Constitution of the United States and retain your previous citizenship.
