Service in the army or how to obtain citizenship in the United States.
Service in the US Army is indeed one of the fastest ways to obtain citizenship. But is it really that simple? On how to obtain US citizenship by serving in the armed forces of the country, read the material below!
American citizenship through military service.
A person who has served in the Armed Forces of the United States for one year (or immediately if the service is in the war zone) is indeed entitled to accelerated citizenship. However, the whole difficulty is that we still have to get into the army. And they take only US citizens or permanent residents there. In addition, the contract for service is for a period of 2 to 6 years. In general, this method can not be called simple. And to demonstrate how difficult it is, we will tell you later who and how can enter the service in the US Armed Forces.
Who can enter the service in the US Armed Forces.
Immigration to the United States through military service is a myth. A US citizen or permanent resident (holder of a green card) can enter the service in the US Armed Forces. It can be both a man and a woman (with some exceptions) aged 17 to 42 years who have no previous convictions, but have a secondary education and good physical preparation.
In the US, there are 5 types of armed forces (army, navy, air force, marines and coast guard), and for each of them its age limit. For example, in the army take people from 17 to 42 years, and in the air force – only up to 27. University students can serve in reserve.
Service in the US Army: a step-by-step instruction on how to proceed.
Step 1. Pass the preliminary test and find the recruiter.
To understand if you are suitable for the service in the US Army, on the official website you can pass a preliminary test, download its results and contact the recruiter with them. However, this procedure can be avoided: to address directly directly to the recruiter and deal with it already.
Each type of armed forces has its own recruiters. Find the nearest you can here.
The recruiters check whether you are suitable for military service (age, education level, physical performance, criminal record and marital status), and they will ask you to pass a preliminary computer test for professional fitness.
Step 2. Prepare the necessary documents.
The recruiter will provide you with a list of necessary documents and help them to collect if necessary. Such documents include:
proof of citizenship (if you were not born in the US); social security card; valid driver’s license or ID card; an extract from the bank account; originals or certified copies of documents on marriage or divorce, court order on separation of spouses (if necessary); originals or certified copies of birth certificates of children under the age of 18; statements from parents; documents on payment of alimony (if necessary); if you are married to an army official, give his name, social security number and military address; copies of the lease agreement (if necessary); originals or certified copies of ROTC (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps) documents (if necessary); originals of documents on education.
Step 3. Take the ASVAB test.
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test is designed to identify your strengths and determine which military specialties are best for you. The test will include questions in the fields of science, mathematics, mechanics, electronics, etc.
Step 4. Take a physical examination.
To schedule a physical check again, your recruiter will help. You should know that there are also requirements to your growth, weight and percentage of body fat. Find out if you meet the necessary parameters, you can by using a special calculator on the site.
Step 5. Choose a specialization.
After successfully passing the test and undergoing a medical examination, you can choose one of the army specialties (there are about 150 of them). Then you sign a contract for a certain period. The length of service depends on the specialties and the type of armed forces and varies from 2 to 6 years.
Step 6. The training course and the beginning of the service.
Before you go to study the basics of combat training, you will have to take the oath. Then you will be sent to basic combat training. The course will consist of several phases and will last about 10 weeks (in some troops more). After that, you will get to your first base and start the service in the army. Food and accommodation – at the expense of the armed forces. Also you will receive a salary.
Acquiring US citizenship through military service.
You can file documents necessary for obtaining citizenship directly at the place of service (usually in the personnel department or in the office of the Chief Military Prosecutor). Such documents include: application for naturalization (Form N-400) and a statement on the certification of service in a military or naval base (Form N-426).
And the latter must be attested. After the package of documents is ready, he will be sent to a specialized unit for the naturalization of the USCIS servicemen to begin the accelerated procedure for obtaining citizenship. Somewhere in 6-8 months you will already be a US citizen!
