Become a Citizen
Welcome to America, and welcome to the great state of Maryland. We know that becoming a citizen is a process that can seem intimidating at first. You should know that we are here to help.
Maryland is home to great history, entertainment, beaches, cities and towns, mountains, and employment opportunities. There are several resources available to assist your journey to citizenship.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is a good place to start. They have a list of 10 steps to becoming a U.S. citizen. The Maryland Office of Refugees & Asylees provides support and services to federally-recognized refugees and political asylees to ease their integration into American society. The New Americans Campaign is another great resource to connect you with citizenship resources, including online events in your language.
Too much information? Don’t worry, there is someone you can call to help you find what you need in Maryland who can connect you with a navigator who speaks your native language. Just dial 2-1-1 on your phone.
