Recommended Posts

Guys, I live in Miami Florida. and I want to apply for citizenship. On August 28 2010 it will be my 5th year as a permanent resident. Should I wait until the last moment to apply or I can do it before August?. I heard that you can do it either 30 or 60 days prior, but how long does it take to have the citizenship? Interview and oath?

thanks!

Hi,

You are eligible to apply 90 days before your 5th year anniversary. Currently, it looks like the average applicant takes around 3-4 months from application to Oath. If Aug 28th marks your 5th year residence anniversary, then May 30th 2010 will be the first day you are eligible. If you apply before May 30th, then they will reject your application saying that it is still too early and you are not yet eligible and they are very strict about it...

hope this helps...
