The Benefits of Citizenship

Though many immigrants enjoy life in the U.S. as a lawful permanent resident, LPRs do not have all the same rights and abilities as citizens.

American citizenship comes with the:

  • Right to vote
  • Right to run for office
  • Right to have a U.S. passport
  • Ability to travel without losing your residency status
  • Ability to sponsor relatives for a green card
  • Right to receive government benefits

What Is Naturalization?

Most people over the age of 18 who seek American citizenship will have to go through the process of naturalization.

To be eligible for naturalization, you must meet one of the following criteria:

  • Be a lawful permanent resident (have a green card) and have lived in the U.S. for at least five years
  • Have asylum and have lived in the U.S. for at least four years
  • Be the spouse of a U.S. citizen and have lived in the U.S. for at least three years
  • Be a lawful permanent resident who has served in the U.S. military and has lived in the country for at least three years

Those seeking naturalization must also speak, write, and read in English and prove they have basic knowledge of U.S. government and history by taking a test.
