  • Citizenship and I-192 Questions

    A person has two USC parents who were born outside the USA in another country and who have been documented as USC at birth and who now hold US passports. What length of time under INA Act 301(c) is requried for that person's parents to have "had a residence" prior to the birth of that person so that that person is also a USC?

    That same person has a criminal record in Canada. What is the procedure to obtain a waiver qualifying under 'extreme hardship' if that person's parents live in the USA and Canada off and on?

    Thanks for replies.

      You have two questions,first part is a transmission of citizenship at birth:
      Parents were born outside the USA in a foreign country:
      1- If born before Nov. 14, 1986 they will have to
      met the transmission requirement of ten years
      and five after the age of 14 years.
      2- If born on or after Nov. 14, 1986 they will
      have to redided in USA for five years.
      3- Criminal record in Canada:
      This has nothing to do with the transmission
      of Citizenship, unless it is a citizenship
      criminal record.

      If I remember correctly at one time in 1978 the Department of state issued a letters/memos to allUS Foreing Mission that ilegal time as well as student in US can counted that peroid towards the time spend in USA to transmit the citizenship to the child born outside the USA.
