U.S. Citizenship at Birth
Derivative citizenship is when a child is born outside of the U.S. to at least one U.S. citizen parent who meets certain eligibility requirements. If the requirements are met, the child automatically derives citizenship upon his or her birth. No affirmative action is required of the child to acquire citizenship.
