For some jobs (usually government ones) you need to prove that you are not a security risk. I.E. can have access to government secrets. If your not a USC you normally will not be able to get a security clearance.

A security clearance is where they do an extensive search of your background to make sure that you can be granted whatever level clearance they are seeking. The government ones usually have names like confidential , secret, top secret. Each level is harder to get. At some level not only can you not be a non USC but you can't even have a non USC in your immediate family. They will check out your criminal history , your fiances and you medical history. They sometime also knock on neighbors doors. I think in may be in state training for immigration field investigators :o

Yes that is correct, you have to be a USC to get a security Clearance. I am in process for my current job of getting one.

It can take awhile to get one. cause they do go out and investagae.

Once you get one, and you leave the county, you have to inform the Goverment that you are planing on leaving a country.
