    A U.S. citizen parent (or if the parent died within the last five years, by a U.S. citizen grandparent or U.S. citizen legal guardian) may file Form N-600K on behalf of a child who was born outside the United States and regularly resides outside the United States. To be eligible for U.S. citizenship, the child must:

    • Have at least one U.S. citizen parent, whether by birth or naturalization (including an adoptive parent);
    • Be under 18 years of age;
    • Be residing outside the United States in the legal and physical custody of the U.S. citizen parent, or if the U.S. citizen parent is deceased, in the legal and physical custody of a person who does not object to the application;

    • Have a U.S. citizen parent who has been physically present in the United States or American Samoa or Swains Island for no less than five years (at least two of which were after the U.S. citizen parent’s 14th birthday).
      • If the U.S. citizen parent fails to meet the physical presence requirement, the child must have a U.S. citizen grandparent who was physically present in the United States for a period or for multiple periods totaling not less than five years (at least two of which were after the U.S. citizen grandparent’s 14th birthday).

    Children of active-duty U.S. service members do not have to be temporarily in the United States in accordance with lawful admission to complete the Form N-600K process.

    Children Born Out of Wedlock

    If the child was born out of wedlock and is seeking citizenship through their U.S. citizen father, the child must be:

    • Legitimated in the United States or abroad under the law of their residence or domicile, or the law of the child’s father’s residence or domicile.  
    • In the legal custody of their father at the time of such legitimation; and
    • Legitimated before reaching their 16th birthday.

    Adopted Child

    If adopted, the child must meet all of the requirements to qualify as an “adopted child” under one of the following:

    • Section 101(b)(1)(E) of the INA;
    • As an “orphan” under section 101(b)(1)(F) of the INA; or
    • As a Hague Convention adoptee under section 101(b)(1)(G) of the INA.

    Please visit our Adoption webpage for additional information.

    An adopted child under section 101(b)(1)(E) of the INA must meet the following additional requirements:

    • The adoption order must have been granted before their 16th birthday (or their 18th birthday if they are the birth sibling (including a half-sibling) of another adopted child who qualified for immigration under section 101(b)(1)(E) or (F) based on the other child’s adoption by the same adoptive parent(s);
    • The adoptive parent(s) must have had legal custody of the child for at least two years; and
    • The child must have resided with the adoptive parent(s) for at least two years.

    If a child has been battered or was treated extreme cruelty by the adoptive parent or by a family member of the adoptive parent living in the same household, we may waive the two-year legal custody and residence requirements.

    Orphan Child

    An orphan under section 101(b)(1)(F) of the INA must be the beneficiary of an approved Form I-600, Petition to Classify Orphan as an Immediate Relative, to file Form N-600K.

      Adoption under the Hague Convention

      If you are in the Military

      Your child may naturalize overseas if you are a U.S. citizen on official U.S. military orders overseas. Service while on active duty with the U.S. armed forces counts as presence in the United States. See our Military Citizenship for Family Members page for more information.

      Filing If Your Child Recently Turned 18

      If your child has just turned 18, you cannot file Form N-600K because your child must complete the adjudication process and take the Oath of Allegiance before their 18th birthday. When you file Form N-600K, you will provide a preferred interview date. We will need a minimum of 90 days to review the form and the documentation. Therefore, please ensure the preferred interview date you request is at least 90 days before your child turns 18.

      If you do not provide sufficient evidence to establish your child’s eligibility before their 18th birthday, we will deny your Form N-600K, and your child would no longer be eligible for a Certificate of Citizenship.

      PREGUNTAS MÁS FRECUENTES

      What is Section 322?

      • Section 322 of the Immigration and Nationality Act grants expeditious naturalization to the children of US citizens. It was amended by Public Law 103-416 on October 25, 1994 (and modified in form, but not in substance, by the “Child Citizenship Act of 2000”) to enable Americans abroad to obtain US citizenship for their children, not otherwise eligible to be citizens, through a special naturalization procedure which does not require that they immigrate to the United States. This new amendment does not change the existing rule for transmitting citizenship at birth to children born abroad. Rather, it opens an additional “entry way” for children of Americans to receive Certificates of Citizenship if they fulfill the requirements 

      What is the parent’s residency requirement to file an N-600K?

      At least one adoptive parent must have lived in the US for at least 5 years, 2 of these having been since their 14th birthday. Evidence, such as tax returns, will need to be included to show these residency requirements were met. If this cannot be met, there are some exceptions made through a grandparent of the adoptive child being able to meet these requirements.

      When can we file the N-600?

      This form can be only be filed with the proper entities at USCIS after the adoption has been finalized. This form must be filed by the adopting family; Lifeline cannot submit this form for you.

      How long after filling will I receive an interview date?

      You can request when and where your hearing will take place, but it will be in the hands of USCIS to grant these requests. They request a 90 day minimum period between filing the N600K and the requested interview date. This form will take approximately two weeks to be processed, and then it will be sent to a field office in the area your interview will occur.

      It is our understanding that this interview date could take 3-6 months after your N600K is filed. It is recommended for your family to remain in the USA during this time to avoid any complications with your child’s travel visas. Speak with your social worker about travel arrangements if you do not plan to remain in the United States for at least 3 months after the adoption.

      It has been communicated that an expedite on the date for the interview can be requested. This can be requested with a good reason for needing the interview date to be expedited, but it is not guaranteed to anyone.

      When do we receive our child’s green card?

      Once arriving to the USA, your child’s passport will be stamped, and this should trigger USCIS to issue your child a resident green card.

      When can we return to our foreign residence?

      Once the date of interview is given, at least one parent must be present with the adoptive child. At the interview, if citizenship is granted, then the certificate of citizenship will be issued at that time. This will enable your family to obtain your child’s US passport in order for your family to travel home to your current country of residence.
