The child can be a U.S. citizen if your sister meets some of the requirements (lived in the US for at least 5 years after her 16th birthday)....all she needs to do is go to the Embassy with the child's birth certificate and apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad. At the same time, she can apply for the child's U.S. passport...I had to do the same thing for our son in Ukraine.

Follow this link to file the appropriate paperwork if your US citizen sister meets the residency requirement.

http://islamabad.usembassy.gov/birth_abroad.html

Eligibility for Citizenship

Eligibility for citizenship must be documentarily proven before a CRBA is issued. The following eligibility criteria apply to children born after November 14, 1986 and who are under the age of 18. A child born before November 14, 1986 or over the age of 18 is ineligible for a CRBA, but may still be eligible for a passport and citizenship. Contact the Embassy for more information.

*

A child born in wedlock to 2 U.S. citizen parents is a citizen as long as one of the parents has resided in the US sometime prior to the child’s birth.

*

A child born in wedlock to one U.S. citizen parent and one alien parent is a citizen as long as the US Citizen parent was present in the U.S. for 5 years prior to the child’s birth, two of which were after age 14.

*

A child born out of wedlock to a U.S. citizen mother is a citizen as long as the mother was physically present in the U.S. continuously for 12 months at any time prior to the child’s birth.

*

A child born out of wedlock to a U.S. citizen father is a citizen as long as paternity is clearly and convincingly established, the child is legitimated for the purpose of citizenship, and the father commits to financially support the child. The father must have been physically present in the U.S. for 5 years prior to the child’s birth, two of which were after age 14.

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone would know what to do in my case. I'm a US Citizen residing in Pakistan. I'm expecting my first child in Dec 2009 and am married to a Pakistani national. I have lived here for the last 14 years or so (with visits to the US) - having moved here when I was almost 15 - hence I don't meet the requirement of having lived in the US for 2 years past the age of 14. Can anyone tell what I would need to do in this case to register/qualify my child as a US Citizen?

Thank you for your help.


Our USCIS journey:

Jan 14, 2006 - Married

Nov 11, 2009: I-130 package sent to Chicago Lockbox

Nov 18, 2009: Check cashed

Nov 20, 2009: I-130 NOA1

Dec 1, 2009: Touch

Feb 24, 2009: I-130 NOA2 mailed out

If you return to the US and give birth here, your child automatically is a US citizen.

If your child is born in Pakistan, you would have to move to the US and establish a domicile in the US and then petition an immigration visa for your child. This could take 6-12 months to process. If you give up your domicile during this period, you may put the petition for your child at risk. Once your child arrives in the US and resides with you, the child automatically becomes a US citizen. Your child then can apply for a certificate of citizenship using form N-600.

There is no other way that I know of that you can convey US citizenship to your child if give birth outside the US or after the birth you both not establish a domiciliary in the US.
