About the Office of Citizenship

The Office of Citizenship, within U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Department of Homeland Security, is responsible for promoting instruction and training on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and providing immigrants with information and tools necessary to successfully integrate into American civic culture.

Its primary focus is to provide information and resources to immigrants at two key points in their journey towards civic integration: when they first become permanent residents and when they are ready and eligible to begin the formal naturalization process.


Strategic Objectives:

  • Enhance information and educational opportunities provided to permanent residents to support their integration and participation in American civic culture.
  • Promote education and training on citizenship rights, privileges, and responsibilities for immigrants interested in becoming U.S. citizens.
  • Infuse citizenship-related ceremonies and events with greater meaning and stature.
