U.S. Citizenship Through Birth Process

Form N-600, Application for Certificate of Citizenship, is meant for a child born outside the U.S. to a biological or adoptive parent or parents that are U.S. citizens. This process takes approximately ten months, but the exact processing time varies based on the speed of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office responsible for the application.

For individuals under 18, they are eligible to apply for consular report of birth abroad (CRBA) at a U.S. consulate, which is less expensive and can be processed quicker depending on the consulate appointment schedule. In addition to other requirements, such an application requires:

  • The applicant’s birth certificate or record
  • Evidence of the parent’s U.S. citizenship
  • The U.S. citizen parent’s birth certificate

If applicable, the individual may also be asked to provide:

  • Proof of either parent’s status as a U.S. national
  • Proof of required residence or physical presence in the U.S. for the parent
  • The U.S. citizen parent’s marriage certificate
  • Proof of legitimation for children born out of wedlock
  • A copy of the full, final adoption decree (if relevant)
