N400 eligibility


Recommended Posts


I got my Green card in July 2011 and I am planning to apply for my USC now. In the past 5 years, I have stayed out of the US for 406 days but my stay outside never exceeded more than 6 months in one go. I just got back to US a month back after 1 month of vacation. Can I apply now or should I have to wait 3 months since I just got back a month back, please let me know

If you have lived in the same district for the last 3 months (vacation doesn't mean that you give up your home), you are ok to apply. The 3-months in the district requirement is not about physical presence. Of course, you have to fulfill the physical presence requirement (1/2 of the 5 years before applying) and the continuous residency requirement.
