Why Citizenship?

Becoming a U.S. citizen has many advantages. Some of the benefits of citizenship include:

  • Travel freely with a U.S. passport and live outside the U.S.
  • Vote in elections and run for elected office
  • Create a citizenship pathway for your eligible children
  • Access additional and higher-paying job opportunities including government work
  • Reunite with family members in the U.S.
  • Access benefits reserved for citizens such as certain scholarships
  • Feel a sense of community knowing you’re a permanent citizen of the U.S.
