    Post Senior Citizen - Green Card Holder for Over 27 Years

    hi,

    I have had my green card for over 27 years. Since I became a PR of US, I travel back and forth between US and Taiwan for work. Most of the time, my stay in the US is less than 6 month at a time (maybe 1 or 2 trips at 2 month each). Now that I am 68 years old, I want to get my US citizenship. However, since I have not met the strict 5 years 30 month rule, I am not sure if I need to wait. For the past 3 years or so, I have been staying more and more in the US (4-5 months per year). Is there any exception for cases in my condition?

    Does any one know? My wife is a citizen, and we have been married for over 40 years. My two children are both citizen and lives in US as well. My residence is in MI.


    Thank you.

    You must meet the residency requirement in order to naturalize.

    Your conduct does not appear to be that of a permanent resident. Have you paid US taxes on your worl wide income? You need to meet with an attorney before doing anything as your conduct will be reviewed for citizenship and you may be judged to have abandoned your GC years ago by only visiting for several months at a time.
