The final step available to permanent residents is becoming naturalized as a United States citizen. The application process begins with filing Form N-400. Then applicants go through a biometric screening for collecting fingerprints, signature, and photos to confirm and document identity. Finally, an interview with an immigration officer is scheduled. During the interview, the officer verifies the applicant’s ability to speak and read English and their knowledge of basic facts about the United States.
