If you are interested in applying for citizenship in El Paso, you must first understand the rules for how someone becomes a U.S. citizen. There is a process you must go through in most cases to become a citizen. First, you must get an immigration visa. You could be sponsored by an employer or by a family member for an immigration visa.
Once you have a sponsor, there must be a visa available to you. There are an unlimited number for spouses of U.S. citizens and other close relatives, but there are other types of employer and family-based immigration visas that there are annual limits on.
After you get an immigration visa and fulfill all requirements, you must become a permanent resident and get a green card. You must live in the United States as a lawful permanent resident for at least five years. At this point, applying for citizenship in El Paso is possible.
