This section of our website contains immigration information and links to resources specifically for members of the military and their families.
Naturalization Through Military Service
If you are serving or have served in the U.S. armed forces and are interested in becoming a U.S. citizen, you may be eligible to apply for naturalization under special provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA)
Citizenship and Adjustment of Status for Family Members
Members and veterans of the U.S. armed forces and their dependents may be eligible for permanent residence and citizenship under special provisions of the INA.
Family Based Survivor Benefits
If you are an immediate relative of a U.S. armed forces member who died from combat-related injuries while on active duty, you may be eligible for certain “survivor” immigration benefits, including citizenship.
We recognize the important sacrifices made by U.S. service members, veterans, enlistees and their families. To support these individuals, we provide discretionary options such as parole in place and deferred action on a case-by-case basis.
