arrow Bringing familymembers to the United States. Citizens generally get priority when petitioning to bring family members permanently to this country
arrow Obtaining citizenshipfor children born abroad. In most cases, a child born abroad to a U.S. citizen is automatically a U.S. citizen.
arrow Travelling with a U.Spassport.A U.S. passport allows you to get assistance from the US government when overseas.
