Naturalization - Frequently Asked Questions


When does my time as a permanent resident begin for the purpose of Naturalization?

Your time as a permanent resident begins on the date you were granted permanent resident status. This date is on your Permanent Resident Card (formerly known as Alien Registration Card).


How do I become a naturalized U.S. citizen?

If you are not a U.S. citizen by birth or did not acquire U.S. Citizenship automatically after birth, you may be eligible to become a citizen through the process of Naturalization, if you are:

  • 18 years and older, use the Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, to become naturalized
  • Under 18 years of age, you may acquire Citizenship from your parent(s) by using Form N-600, Application for a Certificate of Citizenship, to document your Naturalization

Where do I file my Naturalization application?

You should send your completed Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, to the United States Citizenship Immigration and Services Service Center having jurisdiction over your place of residence.

Note: Remember to make a copy of your application. Do not send original documents with your application unless the checklist of documents states that an original is required.
