Can I apply for an American passport if my cousins are American born citizens? ?

Do I qualify for American citizenship or an American passport if my cousins are American born / live in The USA ?

    No. You need children, spouse or parent to be eligible.

    Your cousins' citizenships have nothing to do with you. You're either a US citizen and entitled to a US passport or you are not. Your cousins aren't even "immediate family" to where they could sponsor your US resident status.

    What have your cousins to do with anything?  It is YOUR citizenship that matters.  If you aren't American, you don't qualify for an American passport.  That is how it works.

    Nope - you have absolutely no claim to US citizenship through them.

    No. At least not directly. Your cousins might be able to sponsor their parents (your aunt and uncle) to live in the U.S. and eventually obtain citizenship. Then your aunt or uncle would sponsor their sibling (your parent), who would eventually sponsor you. The problem is that the waiting list to enter the U.S. based on family relationships can be about 20 years, depending on the person's home country, and when a person does get into the country, they have to live there for several years before qualifying to put their relative on the list, so we are talking about something that could easily be a 60-70 year process. And your parents probably won't live that long.

    You can't apply and get a US passport unless you are a US citizen

    No. You must be a US citizen yourself. Your distant relatives cannot sponsor you to immigrate, either.

    I think not. We don't offer passports as a Christmas gift.
