    I was wondering who in here have used a credit card to pay for their citizenship application? Was the transaction charges a cash advance or purchase? I need to know as I am planning to use my CC to apply. I already contacted my bank and was told its up to the merchant and that I's have to call the DHS. But first, I thought I'd reach out to here first. Thank you
