Naturalization is the process through which a permanent resident obtains U.S. citizenship and the benefits and responsibilities associated with it. For many people, becoming a citizen is the culminating event in an often long process that began years prior with a visa petition. United States citizens travel with a U.S. passport, are eligible to vote in federal elections, and are eligible to apply for federal government jobs.

In general, you may qualify for naturalization if you have been a lawful permanent resident for 5 years (or 3 years if married to a U.S. citizen), are at least 18 years old, and are of good moral character. Additionally, under most circumstances you must also be able to read, write, and speak basic English and possess sufficient knowledge of U.S. government and history.
