Recommended Posts

#6 states "I have resided in the state which I'm applying for citizenship for the last three months" What does this exactly mean?


Permanent resident since 04/05/2014

Applying day 01/06/2014

Took a 3 week vacation on 10/07/2016 to 10/30/2016, does the question above mean, I should be in the state the last 3 months before I apply which means I have to apply on 01/30/2017?

It just means you have had a permanent address in the same state. 


For example, if you lived in Wisconsin until November 2016 but then moved to Vermont in December 2016, you would have to wait until March 2016 because you have to be a resident of Vermont for three months.


Have you continuously lived in the same state? Then you're fine!
