How long does form N-600 take to process?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Last month I filed for form N-600 which is applying for citizenship through a U.S. Parent. I've noticed on the USCIS website it says the process takes 11-14 months. Is there a possibility it'll be shorter than that? I'll be moving out of state soon and I was hoping I could get my citizenship done in my current state.

Why not just use their naturalization certificate to apply for a passport. Much cheaper

An N-600 does not apply for citizenship. It applies for a certificate of citizenship as evidence of your existing US citizenship. This is an important distinction.

 

As noted already, you could apply for a US passport instead. Cheaper and much faster, and is useful for both ID and travel abroad.

How old are you? And were you under 18 when your parent became a citizen and living with them at the time?

 

If so then you are already a citizen through them. N-600 (Certificate of citizenship) will just give you the paper for it. But you could also apply for the us passport.
