Almost! If your Grandmother was born in America then she is automatically a US citizen. Now her Children are automatically eligible for US Citizenship if they were born abraod. She merely needs to file for a "Report of birth Abroad" with the US consolate. That will make your parent of said Grandmother a US citizen. Now that your Parent is a citizen repeat the process for yourself.

its really not that easy to become a us citizen. you have to learn about the history of the United States and then take a test on it. Also if you under the age of 18 you wont have to go through all that junk, well most of it. if you are above the age of 18 then you will. also it takes years to become a citizen

difinitely not.....it would most likely you're mother to be the american citizen but not you,,,


Chris the discerner
Yes and no. You can become a US citizen but not "automaticlly." Even if everyone in your whole family (wife, parents, siblings and kids included) you still have to file the paperwork and wait an eternity etc etc. It really is not that bad but it will take time and a little money.
