Key Facts About the Citizenship Test
If USCIS approves your application for naturalization, you must attend a ceremony and take the Oath of Allegiance to the United States. This meaningful ceremony allows you to become a fully naturalized U.S. citizen.
You will receive a certificate of naturalization as official proof that you are a U.S. citizen. Consider reviewing your certificate for any errors before leaving the ceremony.
US citizens enjoy several benefits, including the right to live and work permanently in the United States, get scholarships and grants that are open exclusively to U.S Citizens and help family members immigrate to the United States.
