Eligibility Requirements for Naturalization

If you would like to become a U.S. citizen, you will have to go through the naturalization process. Before you can start the process, you will first need to hold a green card for at least five years. The time requirement is reduced to three years for green card holders who have been married to and living with a U.S. citizen for at least three years.

If you have met the minimum requirements of being a legal permanent resident, you will then need to meet several other stipulations before filing Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.

To become a U.S. citizen, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Be a person of good moral character
  • Have resided continuously in the U.S. for at least five years before applying
  • Be physically present in the U.S. for at least 30 months out of the five years of continual residency
  • Have lived in your current state for at least three months before applying
  • Support the principles and ideals of the U.S. Constitution
  • Pass an English test and a U.S. civics and history test
