Definition of naturalization (in reply to: What is Immigration naturalization)
Hi Regina.

In my experience, this is a term not often associated with Canadian immigration, but more often used by Americans ("Immigration and Naturalization Services" was the previous name for USA´s "Citizenship and Immigration Services" department).

In the US, naturalization is an immigrant status, sandwiched between residency and citizenship. According to USCIS, "naturalization" is defined as follows:

The process by which U.S. citizenship is conferred upon a foreign citizen or national after he or she fulfills the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The general requirements for administrative naturalization include:

- a period of continuous residence and physical presence in the United States;
- residence in a particular USCIS District prior to filing;
- an ability to read, write, and speak English;
- a knowledge and understanding of U.S. history and government;
- good moral character;
- attachment to the principles of the U.S. Constitution; and,
- favorable disposition toward the United States.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Dennis Caul
