Are You A Military Member Who Wants To Become a US Citizen?

Are You A Military Member Who Wants To Become a US Citizen in 2024?

In 2023, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) proudly welcomed military service members from the U.S. Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard, Coast Guard and Space Force to become #NewUSCitizens in naturalization ceremonies around the world! These men and women had sworn oaths to defend the nation. In moving ceremonies held around the globe, they took another critical step, raising their hands and pledging allegiance to their adopted country, officially becoming American citizens. This momentous occasion underscored the vital role immigrants play in enriching the nation’s fabric and the enduring connection between service and citizenship.

Did you know that many foreign-born U.S. military members are unaware of the benefits they are entitled to or have been denied benefits they earned through their service to our country, including naturalization? Naturalization, as you may know, is the formal process of becoming a U.S. citizen.

  • Serving in the U.S. military opens doors to special immigration benefits for immigrant service members, including accelerated paths to naturalization.
  • These exclusive benefits extend beyond the service member, potentially also applying to their foreign-born spouse and children.
  • These benefits may apply to active military members and former U.S. service members and their families.
