US Citizenship

To apply for US Citizenship an applicant must have held permanent residence status (green card) for at least five years, or for at least three years if married to a US Citizen.

To meet the eligibility requirements, an applicant must be at least 18 years old at the time of filing, be able to read, write and speak basic English and be a person of good moral character.

US Law allows for dual citizenship.

A child born outside the United States to a U.S. citizen parent or parents may be eligible to apply for a US passport if the parent(s) meets the requirements for transmitting U.S. citizenship.

The US citizen parent(s) may file a CRBA and simultaneously submit an application for the child’s U.S. passport and social security number. A child with an automatic right to US citizenship must enter and exit the United States on a U.S. passport.

We can assist with the filing of these applications at the US Embassy in London.
