Citizenship (N-400 Application for Naturalization)

About the service

The N-400 Application for Naturalization is the final step in the process of becoming a U.S. citizen through naturalization. This application is filed by lawful permanent residents (green card holders) who meet the eligibility requirements for naturalization and wish to become citizens of the United States. Naturalization confers various rights and privileges, including the ability to vote in federal elections, travel with a U.S. passport, and petition for family members to immigrate to the United States.

Benefits of the status/service

  • Full Citizenship Rights: Naturalized citizens enjoy the same rights and privileges as native-born citizens, including the right to vote in federal elections, run for elected office, and hold certain government positions.
  • Security and Stability: Citizenship provides a sense of security and stability, as naturalized citizens cannot be deported from the United States except in rare circumstances involving fraud or criminal activity.
  • Global Mobility: U.S. citizens can travel freely with a U.S. passport and enjoy the benefits of consular protection while abroad, including assistance from U.S. embassies and consulates in case of emergencies.
