I'm curios to know what the difference is in trying to get the USA citizenship within 3 months before the 3rd anniversary of the 2 yr GC...& trying to become USA citizen any time after receiving the 10 yr GC, what's the difference in it? Can anynone to decide to become USA citizen whenever she/he wants within the 10 yr CG validity?

Does anyone know about it? Or maybe I should go in the forum about US citizenship?

Tks for any reply!!!! Good luck for your 10 yr GC process. :star:

There is no difference. You are first eligible to apply for US citizenship 90 days prior to the third anniversary of your original greencard. You can apply anytime after that as long as you continue to meet the residency and non-criminality requirements - and if you are applying before 5 years, are still married to the same US citizen you were married to when you became a permanent resident. You can apply for Citizenship whenever you want after you first become eligible - or never, if you wish. It is your choice.

This question is better placed in the Citizenship forum so I hope an organizer or moderator will move it:-).


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
