By September 29, 2022October 10th, 2022No Comments

In honor of Citizenship Day on September 17th, New York Secretary of State Robert J. Rodriguez introduced the development of the New York State Citizenshipworks Portal. The launch of this online portal provides eligible immigrants with the opportunity to apply for citizenship. In addition, this portal incorporates a virtual ONA Opportunity Center that helps those that require guidance with naturalization services. For instance, individuals that need assistance with filling out the citizenship application can access this portal for this exact service. They can also receive access to in-language resources, legal help availability, free citizenship preparation classes, virtual citizenship test prep modules, and more. It is very c convenient that immigrants can utilize this newly launched tool to access citizenship application assistance right from their home. Ultimately, this immigrant service is offering solutions to those experiencing difficulty accessing assistance with their citizenship process, and it is inevitably simplifying the entire process for them.

The Citizenshipworks portal is an advantageous and beneficial tool that will help guide immigrants through their citizenship journey. The launch of this portal will help immigrants in taking the necessary steps to becoming citizens and gaining all the life changing advantages of having citizenship. The services from the online tool will allow immigrants to become citizens and have the opportunity to vote, obtain government benefits, participate in democratic processes, and just be further involved in society. Bringing these naturalization services virtually and directly to immigrants in New York will inevitably transform their lives for the better and grant them access to a plethora of opportunities.
