Finding or acquiring proof of USA citizenship is often the passport application stage that takes longest. Typical documents to prove citizenship:

  1. Birth certificate
  2. Naturalization certificate
  3. Consular report of birth abroad

If you have this requirement taken care of, congratulations! You may then proceed to the next stage: ensuring you have gov't-issued ID.
