N400 5 year travel history

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I apologize if this has been asked before, but couldn't find a solid answer. I am almost done, but I don't know if you should include in your travel history the countries you used as a connection flight to the destination if you only stayed there less than 6 hours. What did you do? did you added the countries you used as a connection too? What would you recommend?

Thanks in advance!

No, you were only transiting at the airport, you never cleared customs to "go in" any of those countries, right? The answer is no.

just to add...No, you don't have mention the country if the stay is less than 24 hours or just transiting through the airport. If you however decide to explore this country for more than 24 hours, then you have to mention this country in your travel history. Layovers can be as long as 23 hrs but you still don't need to mention them.

No, that was security that you went through. You were not admitted to those countries, though, right? Long story short, don't even mention those countries.

Honestly all they want to know with that travel history portion is if you were outside the US for > 6 months which would break your residence requirement. I would put everything in but it won't matter much. I was asked if all of my trips were for "leisure" and that was about that. I couldn't even recall every trip that I had put on my application.
