Officials from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will host five online information sessions for California residents in July, including four on how to become a U.S. citizen and one on the asylum process.

The naturalization sessions are divided among three district offices, though they will present information that is relevant to all interested California residents, such as eligibility requirements, fees, how to file and how to prepare for the citizenship interview and test. Interested people do not need to be from specific districts to watch the virtual sessions.

The Los Angeles District Office will host two sessions, the second in Spanish, on July 21 at 5 p.m. and July 29 at 5 p.m. The San Francisco District Office will host a session on July 26 at 12:30 p.m., and the Sacramento District Office will host a session on July 27 at 5:30 p.m.

The asylum information session will occur on July 19 at 12:30 p.m.

Residents can access the virtual meeting links on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website.
