The MIRA organization will be providing, together with immigration lawyers, citizenship application services free of charge. The only fee to be paid is the immigration fee to process your application. In case you receive some public benefit such as MassHealth or others, you are eligible for a "fee waiver" that will be completed and sent with your application, and you will not have to pay this $725 fee.  


You will need to have all of your important documents to prove your identity and your eligibility to apply for US citizenship. Here is a checklistof the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Along with the checklist documents, you will need:

  1. Your Permanent Resident Card (or "Green Card")

  2. Your passport and Social Security Card 

  3. A list of your home addresses for the past 5 years and the dates you lived at each of them

  4. A list of your employers in the past 5 years, with their addresses and dates you worked there

  5. Dates you were outside the U.S. in the last 5 years and countries you traveled to

  6. Names, dates of birth, addresses and green card numbers for all your children, if applicable

  7. Names, dates of birth, marriage and, if relevant, dates of divorce of your current and past spouses and your current spouse's past spouses


If you think you may be eligible for a fee waiver (for low-income applicants), please bring your most recent tax returns and/or your MassHealth card or other public benefit cards. If you are not eligible for a fee waiver, you will need to bring a $725 check or money order to US Citizenship and Immigration Services. (Write:   U.S. Department of Homeland Security). Or pay by credit card.

It is recommended that before the event you contact MIRA,   so that they can review your information, triage possible problems and analyze the requirements so that on the day everything is right to complete your application . The Citizenship Line is (617) 350-5480, ext. 200 or You can also fill out this form Get help with citizenship.

*To receive any free service offered on the day, you will need to visit the resource table to have your "passport" stamped. You will receive a "passport" at the door. This is a way for each participant to learn about the many resources available to the community. All the resources offered are not part of the public charge and do not hinder a possible legalization.
