  • If you did not enlist or reenlist in the United States or its outlying possessions, you must be a Permanent Resident on the day you file your application.
  • If you were out of the country as part of your military service, this time in the U.S. Armed Forces counts as time physically present in the U.S. and does not break your continuous residence no matter where you were outside of the U.S. It is treated just like the time spent in the U.S.
  • Therefore, do not include this time as an absence outside the U.S. in the above table.

  • An absence from the U.S. for 1 year or more will break your continuous residence.

  • Time spent in this type of employment counts as time physically present in the U.S. no matter where you are outside the U.S. as long as you get an approved Form N‐470 before you have been outside of the U.S. for 1 year.
  • An absence from the U.S. for 1 year or more will break your continuous residence. If you will be outside the U.S. for 1 year or more for work in specific jobs, you may keep your continuous residence if you have had at least 1 year of unbroken continuous residence since becoming a Permanent Resident and you get an approval of Form N‐470 at any time before applying for naturalization.
  • Time spent in this type of employment counts as time physically present in the U.S. no matter where you are outside the U.S. as long as you get an approved Form N‐470 before you apply for naturalization.
  • An absence from the U.S. for 1 year or more will break your continuous residence. If you will be outside the U.S. for 1 year or more for work in specific jobs, you may keep your continuous residence if you have had at least 1 year of unbroken continuous residence since becoming a Permanent Resident and you get an approval Form N‐470 before you have been outside of the U.S. for 1 year.
