Naturalization Definition

Naturalization is the legal process by which a non-citizen voluntarily acquires citizenship or nationality of another country. Usually, the process of naturalization will require the candidate to meet the eligibility criteria established by the country in which they are applying as well as the submission of determined paperwork.

U.S. Citizenship through Naturalization

You may become a U.S. citizen by birth or through naturalization. To apply for naturalization candidates must submit U.S. Application for Citizenship Form N-400. Candidates are also required to meet the eligibility requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA): e.g.; have been a permanent resident for at least 5 years, have knowledge of both U.S. history and government (civics), as well as the ability yo read, write, speak, and understand basic English. Applicants will also be required to take the Oath of Allegiance to the United States in a formal naturalization ceremony.

A child under age 18 who is adopted by at least one U.S. citizen parent, and is in the custody of the citizen parent(s), is now automatically naturalized.
