USCIS military naturalization services are changing to occur at four specific overseas bases.
Military naturalization procedures and locations have changed. If you are a Servicemember or an eligible family member of a Servicemember, are stationed overseas, and want to become a naturalized U.S. citizen, you may now be limited to just four locations around the world. On September 30, 2019, the USCIS announced that four hubs will be used to conduct naturalization services for overseas military and eligible family members. Here is a link to the USCIS announcement. Acting USCIS Director, Ken Cuccinelli, described the importance of ensuring all of our military men and women have options available to them to become naturalized U.S. citizens,
“Ensuring that the men and women who dedicate their lives to protecting the United States of America can become citizens while serving abroad is of paramount importance. These service members and their families sacrifice so much to keep our country safe and free. I thank the Department of Defense for partnering with USCIS to ensure naturalization services remain available throughout their deployment overseas.”
The four hubs include:
- Commander Fleet Activities Yokosuka, Japan
- U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys, South Korea
- Naval Support Activity Naples, Italy
- U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart, Germany
- Here is a link to information related to the naturalization ceremonies planned at Stuttgart for October 29, 2019.
