The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) says children of U.S. service members and other government employees born abroad will no longer have automatic citizenship status. The agency says the new policy will go into effect Oct. 29.
When you come from a nation other than the United States and wish to visit Illinois or another part of the country on a temporary basis, you will typically first need to secure a visitor visa. To obtain one of these nonimmigrant visas, you will first need to navigate the application process, and this generally entails filling out an online application and then participating in a subsequent interview.
If you are from a foreign country and wish to become a citizen of the United States, you should be aware of all your options. Naturalization is one of those options, and is granted to foreign citizens who have met the requirements created in the Immigration and Nationality Act. If you do indeed meet the requirements, you are able to apply for citizenship by taking a naturalization test.
