USA citizenship apply

Postby James Bond » Mon, 17 Mar 2014 9:52 pm

Hi All
I have a plan to apply USA citizenship as follows.
-current status : 4 years and 2 months after getting green card and stayed USA
-moved Singapore at last December.
-keep the green card : to visit Guam at this May and stay 2 days, will return Singapore.
-apply USA citizenship : travel to USA at this October to apply the citizen ship.

If the case, is there anybody to suggest what is the risk and how can I reduce the risk, please?
Or I need to get a suggestion from professional people.
Please send e-mail expat6022@gmail.com because I can't send the PM yet.
I really appreciate for your help.
Thanks

Of what country are you currently a citizen?

By your post, I couldn't tell if you wanted to move to the USA, get citizenship but remain abroad or just keep a green card active.

Enjoy your vacation in Guam! I've never been there but it seems nice.

Hi All
Thanks for your comments. I'd like to return to USA after completing 3 years contract in Singapore. I'm not Singaporean so I'd like to keep the green card holder. And I'm going to apply USA citizenship. BTW why does someone apply the USA citizenship even though he doesn't have plan to stay in USA in long term. It looks like strange for me. Anyway I need to suggestion to mitigate the risk so if someone has any idea, please send mail to me. It wouldbe really appreciated. Thanks again

You are aware that just going to Guam doesn't keep your green card active, right? There is a process to have a reentry permit granted. It's not very friendly for people who live outside the US. USCIS is nobody's friend...
