U.S. citizenship signifies more than just the right to vote or travel with a U.S. passport. It represents a profound sense of belonging and participation.

Being a U.S. citizen opens doors to numerous opportunities and privileges, including the freedom to live and work anywhere in the country, protection from deportation, the right to vote in federal elections, and the ability to bring family members to the United States. Above all, it imparts a sense of peace, security, and belonging that is unparalleled.
The journey towards U.S. citizenship begins with determining if one already holds this status by birth or has acquired it from parents post-birth. If not, the next step is to ascertain eligibility for naturalization, which can be done by reviewing the naturalization eligibility worksheet provided by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
Upon confirming eligibility, individuals must prepare and submit Form N-400, the Application for Naturalization. Though it might seem straightforward, this form demands meticulous attention to detail and comprehensive supporting documentation.
Following submission, applicants attend a biometrics appointment and complete an interview, allowing USCIS to verify the applicant’s information and assess their knowledge of English and U.S. civics.
Finally, a decision on the application is received from USCIS. If approved, the individual takes the Oath of Allegiance at a naturalization ceremony, culminating in the receipt of the Certificate of Naturalization and becoming a U.S. citizen.
