Sometimes. A US citizen can marry anybody he/she likes. If a US citizen marries a UK citizen, that alone will not entitle him/her to UK citizenship. The US Citizen will stand to lose the US citizenship if he/she applies to get naturalized as a US citizen. UK citizenship can be acquired sometimes by descent.
If a us citizen marries a Mexican citizen and they live in Mexico will the us allow her to have dual citizenship Mexico and us?
No you do not. The only person that doesn't have citezenship in America is the person from overseas. Another answer: Marriage to a foreign citizen does not affect one's own citizenship. If the new spouse wishes to obtain US citizenship, the laws of the home country determine whether or not that individual either gets dual citizenship or loses the original citizenship. For example, if a bride from New Zealand marries an American, she may gain…
If an American citizen marries a filipino citizen in the Philippines would it make him a filipino citizen also?
No, you do not. Marrying a US citizen never automatically makes you a citizen- however, it does speed up the process if you are trying to naturalize. Normally, a legal resident has to wait 5 years before they can apply for US citizenship; if a legal resident marries a US citizen, this is shortened to 3 years.
If an American citizen marries a Brazilian citizen in Brazil does that person become a Brazilian citizen?
No, not unless you start the paperwork in Brazil. You would have to give up your US citizenship to become a citizen of Brazil. Your new spouse doesn't become a US citizen either through marriage and they would have to apply for citizenship here too. Only being born in the US makes a person an automatic citizen.
If a United States Citizen marries in the United States in January 2009 to an immigrant from the Philippines is she now considered to be a United States Citizen?
No, she is not. She will be allowed to remain in the US with her spouse and children, but she will have to apply for citizenship separate from her marriage. The US citizen REMAINS a US citizen. The immigrant remains an immigrant and must follow the legal path to resident immigrant status, and from there to citizenship. Marriage is not a free pass to residency or citizenship.
The person who marries the US citizen should first become a permanent resident before moving on to file citizenship application. They must have maintained the status of a permanent resident for at least 3 yrs. So only after this time can they apply for their citizenship. It is not easy to get US citizenship. The only advantage of applying for citizenship after marrying a US citizen is that the continuous residence criteria gets reduced to…

If a person holding a US residency card marries a US citizen does that qualify them for US citizenship?
pretty sure it does No, marrying a U.S. citizen does not automatically confer permanent residence status nor the assurance of being granted citizenship to a foreign national. It will change the priority level assigned to the foreign spouse's application for citizenship. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, http://www.uscis.gov
No, it does not. Marrying a US citizen never automatically makes you a citizen- however, it does speed up the process if you are trying to naturalize. Normally, a legal resident has to wait 5 years before they can apply for US citizenship; if a legal resident marries a US citizen, this is shortened to 3 years.
US and UK allow Dual citizenship. A person can be a US citizen and a citizen of UK if he/she desires to. But if a person applies to get naturalized as a citizen of UK when he/she is already a US citizen, then it will lead to losing US citizenship.So a person can have US & UK citizenship as long he/she is not a naturalized citizen of UK.
An Indian cannot become a US citizen by marrying a US citizen. Not only Indians, but any other person from another country cannot become a US citizen just by marrying a US citizen. A US citizen can sponsor a Indian on an appropriate visa ( like K-1 visa) after which he/she can adjust their status to that of a permanent resident. After being a PR for 3 yrs, the Indian can then apply for US…
A us Citizen Marries an Australian who gets citizenship can his child from Australia obtain citizenship?
Can a minor child who was brought to the US illegally gain legal status if he marries a US citizen once he is of legal age?
Perhaps, it depends upon the foreign national's individual circumstances. However, marriage to a US citizen does not automatically guarantee permanent resident status nor citizenship. U.S. Immigration Support, http://www.usimmigrationsupport.org United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, http://www.uscis.gov
No. The condensed version is: For an immigrant to marry a US citizen it does not grant them citizenship. They have to first obtain their green card (after marriage), then if they want to become a US citizen, they must apply for US citizenship. Then to become a citizen of the US, they have to apply for citizenship, study the country's history, pass a test on what they've studied, and swear an oath to be…
If an immigrant has an expired green card and marries a US citizen does it help her to get citizenship faster?
Yes. Currently, a U.S. citizen can apply for citizenship in another country (i.e. Naturalization) without losing U.S. citizenship. A person with a US citizenship can become a citizen of another country through any means other than naturalization. Applying to get naturalized when the person is already a US citizen will lead to his/her losing the US citizenship and there will be no way to revoke it.
