U.S. Citizenship Approved for Returning Permanent Resident
We recently had a U.S. Citizenship Approved for a U.S. permanent resident from Turkey working in the marine service industry. Despite Coronavirus, the U.S. Citizenship was Approved and Received within 5 months from the time of application, including initial application, biometrics, USCIS interview and oath ceremony.
In order to apply to become a U.S. citizen you must meet certain requirements, including: you must be 18 or older at the time of application, be a permanent resident of the Unites State (have a green card) for at least 5 years or at least 3 years in cases of marriage to U.S. citizens, reside continuously in the United States over this period, be physically present in the Unites States for at least 30 months in the last 5 years or 18 months in the last 3 years and show good moral character.
Obtaining U.S. citizenship can be especially complicated if you have not resided continuously in the United States and have taken multiple trips outside of the Unites States over the 5 years prior to application or 3 years in cases of marriage to a U.S. citizen or have spend more than 6 months abroad in one trip over the same period as lengthy or many trips abroad can break the requirement of maintaining continuous residence in the United States. Additionally, a criminal record can affect the application for U.S. Citizenship.
