What should you know if you want to become a citizen in the U.S.?

If you're planning to immigrate to the United States, it's important for you to understand that there may be some delays. For instance, if your paperwork is delayed by an unusually high amount of applications, it could take longer than expected to receive information on whether or not you've received a visa. Keep that in mind if you need to apply for a renewal, since you could be arrested if your visa runs out while you're waiting for the renewal to come.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you can request citizenship after you live in the United States for five years. If you're married to a U.S. citizen, then you can apply in three years. Citizenship is important, because it protects you against unnecessary deportation in the event that you commit a crime or otherwise are threatened with grounds for deportation. Having your citizenship can also help you bring your relatives to the United States more easily.

Finally, remember to always be on time when you have an appointment with the United States Customs and Immigration Services. Don't ever arrive late, because you may miss your proceedings. Additionally, being late could lead to you being deported or having delays in the processing of your documents.

No matter when or why you want to come to the United States, you need to know the best ways to approach the people working with you. By being on time and applying for the things you need as soon as possible, you'll be in a better position and be able to have a better chance of becoming a citizen.
