    Default Applying for U.S. Citizenship After Prior Deinals Due to Residency Issues

    A person has been a legal permanent resident of the U.S. since 2006. She has twice previously applied to naturalize, but in both cases the petitions were denied due to issues with the continuity of her residency.

    She has been present in the U.S. for the past thirty months. Is it now safe for her to again apply for U.S. Citizenship?

    Default Re: Applying for U.S. Citizenship After Prior Deinals Due to Residency Issues

    You can apply for U.S. naturalization if you have held a Green Card for 5 years (or longer) and have been physically present in the United States at least 50% of that time. So if in fact you have been present in the U.S. for the past 2-1/2 years (30 months) and have been a LPR since 2006, you presently qualify.
