- Living in the state where the citizenship application is submitted for at least three months
- Not traveling outside the U.S. in trips lasting six months or more within the last five years; in some cases, this may be three years
- Having maintained a good moral character; not having been convicted of certain crimes, such as those considered to be of “moral turpitude”
- Able to speak, read, and write basic English
- Have a basic understanding of U.S. government and history
- Understand and agree with the U.S. Constitution
Other requirements that are part of the citizenship process include the submission of documents, such as special immigration forms, photos, and copies of personal documents such as marriage certificates and green cards, as well as being interviewed by a USCIS official, having fingerprints taken, and more.
