    I'm asking this for a friend. My friend marry an American citizen and was wondering how long do she have to wait until she can apply for citizenship.

    First step will be to apply for a green card. Did she enter the US with inspection? For that matter, is she in U.S.? If she entered without inspection, then it will take longer and be more complicated to get one, and will likely entail a trip to her homeland while her husband applies for a waiver for her.

    What do you mean inspection? She has a green card.

    If she received her green card through her marriage to the US citizen, she waits 3 years.

    If she received her green card through another method, she waits 5 years.
