Becoming a citizen provides residents with full access to rights in US society. Individuals might qualify for citizenship if they meet certain legal guidelines, such as having legally been in the United States for approximately five years, or if they have lived in the United States for three years, and married a US citizen. Citizenship applicants must also have some familiarity with the English language and a basic knowledge of US history, geography and government in order to pass the naturalization exam. However, some applicants might qualify to take this test in their native language. After completing the process, approved applicants become citizens in about four to six months.
TRP is a partner of the New Americans Initiative, a program of ICIRR, which offers citizenship workshops. If you think that you qualify for US citizenship, please attend one of our citizenship workshops. At the workshop, we meet with each attendee to confirm that they are eligible for citizenship. Then, if you qualify, we will guide you through the application process. Please bring all required documents and information to complete the application.
Check our calendar to see when and where our next citizenship workshop will be occurring. Our workshops are free, and we also offer information on Second Federal’s “Citizenship Loan” to help pay for your citizenship application fee.
