Birth

As U.S. citizen parent(s), you should report your child’s birth abroad as soon as possible to the U.S. Consulate to establish an official record of the child’s claim to U.S. citizenship at birth.  The official record will be the Consular Report of Birth Abroad, Form FS-240 which is a basic United States citizenship document.

A Consular Report of Birth (CRBA) is evidence of United States citizenship, issued to a child born abroad to a U.S. citizen parent or parents who meet the requirements for transmitting citizenship under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

For detailed information about what is a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, please review the travel.state.gov website.

Please continue reviewing this website to see if you qualify to transfer your U.S. Citizenship to your child.
