Naturalization Does Not Require Intent to Reside In US

Technical Update - Clarifying Intent to Reside in United States for Naturalization Purposes

January 05, 2017

USCIS publishes a technical update to clarify that naturalization applicants are not required to intend to reside permanently in the United States after becoming U.S. citizens. This update is in accordance with current statutes; prior to 1994, a person who became a naturalized U.S. citizen was expected to hold the intention of residing permanently in the United States. See Section 104 of the Immigration and Nationality Technical Corrections Act of 1994, Pub.L. 103416(October 25, 1994).
