- You are at least 18 and have demonstrated good moral character.
- You can read, write and speak English.
- You have been present physically in the U.S. for at least half of the required five years of permanent residency.
- You have spent no more than one year outside of the U.S.
- You have lived in the state (or district) where you are filing your application for at least three months.
- Your primary home is in the U.S.
- You can pass a test on basic U.S. history and government.
- You are ready to swear your loyalty to the U.S. and believe in the principles of the U.S. Constitution.
