Check your Eligibility
Who is able to apply for citizenship?
We recommend that you check your eligibility for citizenship before applying for it. This is because if you apply but you are not eligible, your application could become a liability to your status instead of a benefit. The correct eligibles are individuals who have been green card holders for 3 to 5 years.
Green Card Holders Include:
- Individuals who have been married to a U.S. citizen for at least 3 years.
- Widow/widower of a U.S. citizen who died while serving in the military.
- Individuals who are members of the military with any period of wartime service or with at least 1 year of peacetime military service.
If you are a green card holder and have been physically living in the U.S. for the required time, then more than likely you can apply for citizenship.
Other requirements include:
- Applicants must be at least 18 years old.
- Must pass the naturalization test.
- If you are a male between the ages of 18 and 25, you must register with the selective service system.
- Must be a resident of the state where you plan to apply for citizenship for at least three months.
- Must not have left the U.S. for six months or longer during the waiting period of 3-5 years.
