10 steps to becoming a U.S. citizen.
Are you already a U.S. citizen? If not then go to step 2.
Complete your eligibility to become a U.S. citizen. You at least have to be 18 years or older and be a citizen for about 5 years.
Be ready for form number 400 Application for Naturalization. When you meet the goals to be a citizen you apply for form N-400.
Abide form number 400. Assign in your documents, pictures, and account.
Go to metrics consultation, if you are able to. USCIS requires fingerprints because of background checks.
Complete the interview.
Receive a decision from the USCIS on your form N-400.
Receive a letter to take the Oath of Allegiance. You may get to take the Oath the same day as your interview.
Take the Oath of Allegiance. You are not a U.S. citizen until you have taken the Oath so it is important not to miss it.
Understanding U.S. citizenship. Now you are officially a U.S. citizen!
