Newest Americans Take Citizenship Oath on Guam

Dozens of people became naturalized U.S. citizens today in a ceremony held at the U.S. District Court House in Guam, “America in Asia.”

Immigrants from the People’s Republic of China, Taiwan, Philippines, India, South Korea and Japan took their oath of citizenship before friends, family in a rousing ceremony presided over by Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood.

The ceremony was themed “Let Freedom Ring” and timed to honor the memory of American civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.  The U.S. observed a national holiday in honor of King on Monday.

In all 34 people took their oath of citizenship today.  It was the first naturalization ceremony on Guam for 2016.  New, naturalized citizens are welcomed into the American family on Guam every month throughout the year.



The U.S. Territory of Guam is located in the Western Pacific, north of the equator, about 2500km southeast of Tokyo and the same distance due east of Manila, the Philippines. The island has been a part of the United States since 1898.

Guam has:

  • U.S. federal and local courts
  • U.S. banking regulations
  • Representation in the U.S. Congress        
  • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulation
  • U.S. standard roads and utilities               
  • Modern seaport and airport
  • U.S. accredited University of Guam          
  • Accredited primary and secondary schools
  • The U.S. Constitution applies in Guam

The island known as “America in Asia” is just a 3-5 hour, non-stop direct flight from China, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and the Philippines. 

Guam has a $5.5 billion economy that is experiencing record growth in tourism prompting local officials to offer various incentives to developers of new hotel properties, including income and property tax adjustments equal to 10% of construction costs.

No other EB5 investment opportunity in America is closer to Asia; making EB5 offerings in Guam easier to verify, quantify, and act on.

Like those who took their U.S. citizenship oath on Guam today, EB5 immigrant investors in Guam will find educational opportunities for their children and grandchildren; clean air and water; and a safe, ethnically diverse place to live and work.
