1. Do I need a visa to enter the United States?

Most Canadian citizens, as well as citizens of countries that are part of the Visa Waiver Program, can enter the United States without a visa.

They only need a valid and machine-readable passport.

On the other hand, visitors from the rest of the countries must obtain some type of visa to enter the country.

2. What is the difference between naturalization and citizenship?

It is known as naturalization to the legal process to obtain citizenship of the United States. Citizenship can only be obtained if:

  • You were born in the United States.
  • Your parents were citizens at the time of your birth.
  • You approve the process of naturalization.

3. How do I become a naturalized citizen of the United States?

The first step to becoming a naturalized citizen is to determine eligibility for citizenship.

Generally, people are eligible for citizenship if they are at least 18 years of age and have resided permanently for at least 5 years in the United States.

Also if you have been married for at least 3 years to a US citizen. They must also meet other eligibility requirements.

If you qualify, then the next step is to submit a naturalization application. For it to be processed correctly, the ideal is to have the advice of an Immigration lawyer.

If the application is approved, now you must go through the following final stages of the procedure:

  • Successfully complete an interview.
  • Pass an English and history exam.
  • Take the oath of allegiance to the United States.

    4. What are the different immigration visas?

    There are dozens of different visas, available for different purposes. However, they can be categorized in two ways:

    1. Non-immigrants
    2. Immigrants

    Nonimmigrants include student, traveler and business visas.

    On the other hand, immigrant visas, also known as Green Cards, can be obtained after the immigrant entered the United States with a nonimmigrant visa and meets certain requirements; or through a family-based immigration.

    The process is competitive, since the government only grants a limited number of Green Cards each year.
