Naturalization is the process by which U.S. citizenship is conferred upon a foreign citizen or national after he or she fulfills the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
The general requirements for administrative naturalization include:
- one must have resided in the United States for at least five years continuously as a permanent resident,or three years if an individual obtained his or her green card through marriage to a U.S. citizen and remains still married;
- the individual must have resided in the United States for 30 months during the past 5 years. Residence must also include physical presence for that period;
- residence in a particular USCIS District for three months prior to filing;
- an ability to read, write, and speak basic English;
- a knowledge and understanding of U.S. history and government;
- good moral character during the statutory period of required residence (5 years or 3 years if married to a U.S. citizen); and,
- attachment to the principles of the U.S. Constitution.
