Please share your experiences during the citizenship interview when you have an approved N-470.
I became a PR on June 2005, and due to my international business travels I applied for an N-470 and got that approved in 2007.
I went and stayed out of the US for the business purposes. However, as my schedule allowed me and also just to be on the safe side, I never stayed out of the US for more than 6 months anyways. I have had 5 separate trips that lasted between 3 to 5.5 months.
Finally this May, I did apply for my citizenship. I have disclosed all of my travels and the result is 714 days out of the US which well within the limits for a 5 year GC based citizenship application.
Now, my inquiry from you guys is if people who have gone through citizenship interviews with approved N-470 forms can write about their experiences, and the approaches of the Interview Officers on such cases, I will be more comfortable.
Your advises are appreciated. Thanks.
