Marrying a U.S. citizen will get you a two-year spouse visa. After two years of marriage you can apply for citizenship. Contrary to popular belief, you don't automatically become a citizen.

No. You do not become a US citizen by marrying one. That is for you to earn by your own abilities!

User Avatar

Good question! I believe you should become one before marrying one.

A person can become a U.S. citizen by marrying a person that already is a citizen. They can also become a citizen by joining the military.

No. The only way to become a citizen is to be born in the country or do the regular process of becoming a citizen.

No but your children will be half-Irish.

No, an illegal alien does not become a citizen upon marrying a US citizen. You have to wait a period of time before you can start the process of becoming a citizen. Once you have completed your waiting period you must file petitions to become a citizen and go through citizenship classes. You then take written or oral exams.

No, but it does give you the ability to complete the naturalization process.

An individual can become a citizen of Barbados by descent, registration, naturalization, or acts of parliament. Becoming a citizen starts by filing the appropriate paperwork with the citizenship office.

You don't have to pay, it takes time to be a citizen. For some people it takes up to 10 years to be a citizen if you do the paperwork.

No, marriage to a US citizen only reduces the required residency period for permanent residents who wish to become US citizens.

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.

It is not possible to become a Canadian Citizen just by marrying a Canadian citizen. Citizenship cannot be acquired by marriage in any country.

Nobody, not even a Venezuelan can become a US Citizen just by marrying a US Citizen. But it is by far the easiest ways of getting the citizenship. A person marrying a US citizen will be first granted with the conditional permanent resident status. After being so for 3 years, they can file in their citizenship application, if they satisfy all other eligibility conditions.

If you marry your British boyfriend, he does not automatically become an American citizen, and you do not automatically become a British citizen. You both have the right to live in each other's country, but you must file paperwork to do so. Citizenship is not automatic.

Just because you marry a legal citizen, it does not make you a leagal citizen. When I married my husband who was a legal alien he still had to go through the same channels to become a legal US citizen and he had to be sworn in.

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 citizenship, if needed.
