Eligibility for U.S. citizenship?

Eligibility for US citizenship?

Individuals can obtain U.S. citizenship in a variety of ways:

  1. By birth in the United States
  2. By birth outside the United States to at least one U.S. parent
  3. By naturalization

German adults with one U.S. parent may therefore be eligible for U.S. citizenship.

However, there are certain legal requirements attached to the options just mentioned. Individuals in Germany can confidentially contact the U.S. consulate general in Frankfurt am Main to inquire about the requirements for U.S. citizenship and the application process.

Further information is provided on the website of the U.S. consulate Frankfurt / Main.
