Dear Attorney,

I am LPR for last 6 years. However, I traveled atleast twice every year during the first 4 years. I always returned within 5 months, so my continuous stay did not break, I think. I am now waiting for the time lapse to meet the 30 month physical presence stay in the preceding period, which I should be able to meet in the next 3-4 months. During my visits abroad, I visited different places including India. My question is whether my short visits to different countries when I was abroad for the 5 months period will be an issue in my citizenship process?

Thank you

Traveling in itself is not an issue, provided you meet the eligibility requirements for naturalization. However all travel within the past five years will need to be disclosed on the N-400.
