3 Month Residency Rule before applying for N400

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, im confuse about the 3 month residency before applying for N400. I traveled abroad for 55 days. I came back last January. I traveled once since I set foot in this country. I lived in the same house for 5 years now. 

 

Does it mean I have to wait 3 months because I traveled abroad before I can apply for N400?

It means if you move to another state you have to live there for 3 months before you can file for USC.

You don't need to wait. You are good.

Travel abroad is a different thing and doesnt impact from a residency requirement
