You would first have to apply for a green card then three years later apply for citizenship based on marriage. This process will most likely take you about four years.

No Australian citizen would give up their passport to become Philippino. Many would live their entire life married to a Philippine citizen and stay alien.

You don't actually have to have a baby if you're married to a US citizen. If married to a US citizen for 3 years, I believe you automatically have a green card. If you have a baby, I think it would be a little quicker to get the green card. It happened to my brother, then she divorced him.

I believe that you're guaranteed a citizenship when you marry a citizen, but being an illegal complicates the matter.

IF YOU MARRY A MEXICAN, HE DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY BECOME AN AMERICAN CITIZEN. THE ONLY THING THAT MARRAIGE ESTABLISHES WHEN YOU MARRY A MEXICAN IS PERMANENT RESIDENT ALIEN STATUS FOR HIM. HE CAN ONLY KEEP THIS IF YOU REMAIN MARRIED FOR A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF YEARS. IF HE WISHES TO BECOME A CITIZEN, HE MUST TAKE THE TEST AND PASS. I married an illegal Mexican immigrant and I was told by an immigration officer that he can be deported until we have been approved for a visa number, but that some immigration officers will be lenient if the immigrant has papers with him showing that the process is underway.

There are not different time limits established for legal immigrants from different countries, the procedures are the same for each person, with the exception of a foreign national who qualifies as an asylee or refugee. Immigrants of any country who have entered the US illegally and not eligible for permanent residency or US citizenship. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, http://www.uscis.gov

No...not exactly. You would have to migrate to Tanzania to actually become a citizen of Tanzania, or you would have to have be born there.Does marrying a Mexican make you a Mexican? Think of it that way.

Why would her nationality, citizenship, or his military status disqualify her for a divorce? It would be the same as for a foreign citizen married to a civilian, or an American citizen married to someone in the military.

you can . . . but that person who is not a us citizen can only live in the US for a short period of time after marring, that person must become a citizen by taking the test (you have to get a 60% or higher to pass) to become a citizen. its really easy!

No You would have to apply for citizenship just like the other person would have to apply to become a US citizen.

Fourteen. Even if you werent married to a US citizen, you would have to live in the us for 14 years. In this case, if you got married to a us citizen, it would take 14 years for you to gain full membership.

A person would become a Canadian citizen if they feel they would like to become a permanent part of the country. This includes voting in elections, living, working, and spending their life there.

If the person is already married in the Philippines, that marriage would have to be legally annulled first. You can then marry the person even if she or he has a tourist visa. As long as you are a legal citizen of the U.S.A, your new wife or husband will automatically become a citizen as well.

No, that would be bigamy, and it's illegal (as in you can go to jail for it).

In Athens to become a citizen you would have to be over the age of 18 and you would have to be a male. You cant be a slave and you cant be a foreigner. But long ago to become a citizen your father and your mothers father would have to be a citizen.

Yes, you can become an American citizen if you are British. You would need to apply for citizenship, which can take a few years.

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

No they do not automatically become a US Citizen. They would have to get a spouse's visa and then a marriage based Green Card. After the elapse of time - usually 5 years, they may then apply for US citizenship. - The period of time is 3 years, assuming you stay married to your US citizen spouse.

User Avatar

No, the couple would need to become legally married, the citizen spouse would need to apply for a change of status for the non citizen spouse. If it is granted the foreign spouse would be allowed to remain in the US and after having been married for two years could apply for permanent resident status.

User Avatar

No, it doesn't make them a citizen if they marry one. I am a German citizen with a permanent resident green card and married a solider. It didn't make me a US citizen like most people would think. A person in this situation still has to wait for 5 years in Permanent Resident status and then apply for citizenship.

User Avatar

I highly, highly doubt it. In fact, almost sure that you could become a citizen. If they did not allow you to become a citizen, I believe that would be discrimination of some sort...

Only way is if you get a visa in Philipenes and Sri Lanka is your nationality so you're therefore a citizen for that country. If you have kids in the Phillipenes, They would become a Filipino citizen, just saying.
