1. Gather your documents:
The first step in the citizenship application process is to gather all of the required documents. This includes things like your passport, proof of residency, and birth certificate. Make sure to have copies of all of these documents ready to submit with your application form.
2. Complete the form:
The second step is to complete the i 130 form. This form asks for a variety of information, including your name, date of birth, and place of birth. Be sure to read through the form carefully and fill it out completely.
3. Pay the fee:
The third step is to pay the fee for applying for citizenship. The fee amount will vary depending on where you are submitting your application, so be sure to check the specific requirements for your area.
4. Submit the form:
Once you have gathered all of your documents and filled out the i 130 form, you can submit it either online or by mail. Make sure to double-check that you have included everything that was requested before submitting it.
5. Get fingerprinted:
As part of the citizenship application process, you will need to get fingerprinted. This will be done at an appointment that you will schedule after submitting your application form.
6. Schedule your appointment:
After submitting your application, you will need to schedule an appointment for fingerprinting and take the citizenship test. You can do this by calling the appropriate number listed on the back of your receipt or online through the USCIS website.
7. Take the test:
The final step in the citizenship application process is to take the citizenship test. This test consists of a series of questions about U.S history and government that you will be asked orally in front of a USCIS officer. Be sure to study up on these topics before taking the test!
8. Receive your results:
After taking all of these steps, you will finally receive your results! If you are approved for citizenship, congratulations! If not, don’t worry - you can reapply and hopefully be successful on your next try!
