Eligibility for a CRBA

  1. Eligibility for a CRBA
  2. Transmitting Citizenship

Please note:  Acquisition of U.S. citizenship through birth abroad to a U.S. citizen parent requires a “blood relationship” of parent and child — the child must be the biological child of the U.S. citizen parent. Adopted children and step-children of U.S. citizens may be able to obtain U.S. citizenship or residence under other sections of law. Parents of such children should contact the consular section for information specific to their situation.
