Certification Requirements

Citizenship

Turbine Engine Technology Symposium attendance is limited to U.S. citizens. All U.S. citizen attendees are required to sign the citizenship portion of the Turbine Engine Technology Symposium Registration Form.

Options include:

  • U.S. citizen or national by birth in the U.S. or U.S. territory/commonwealth
  • I am a U.S. citizen or national by birth, born to U.S. parent(s), in a foreign country
  • I am a naturalized U.S. citizen
    • Certificate of Naturalization is given to a lawful permanent resident after he or she fulfills the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
  • I am a derived U.S. citizen
    • Derivative citizenship refers to citizenship acquired from a U.S. citizen parent or parents, depending on the law in effect at the time of a person’s birth.

What is the difference between a Certificate of Citizenship and a Certificate of Naturalization?

Certificates of Citizenship and Naturalization both serve as proof of U.S. citizenship, but the eligibility requirements differ. A Certificate of Citizenship is available to people who were born abroad and automatically acquired or derived U.S. citizenship through birth to or adoption by a U.S. citizen parent or parents (whether U.S. citizens by birth or naturalization), while a Certificate of Naturalization is given to a lawful permanent resident after he or she fulfills the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
