How should you list regular trips outside the U.S. on Form N-400?



Very often, permanent residents reside close to the border and this means that some regular trips are unavoidable. As you may already know, apply for N-400 means that you are bound to list all the trips exceeding 24 hours over the past 5 years. However, for people who live close to the border, such trips may be just too many to list them all.

There is still a possible way out. The fact remains – you need to provide the best complete list of all the numerous trips outside the country. However, it is suggested that you attach those trips as an additional attachment to the N-400 form. All you need is to write “See attachment” in the field suggested for the country in Part 9, Item 3.

This template may be of help in case you have too many regular trips to state:

«N-400 Addendum: Part 9, Item 3: Time Outside the United States.

During the past 5 years, I made regular trips to (City, Country) that are too numerous to accurately document with detailed dates. These trips were for the purpose of (provide a reason). I generally made the trip (frequency e.g. twice a month); I would cross the border on a (e.g. Friday and return to the U.S. on a Sunday). During the last five years, I estimate that I made (x) trips that lasted (x) days per trip. Therefore, I am estimating that I spent a total of (x) days outside the United States for this regular trip».

After you are done with the template all that is left is print it out and put it behind the N-400 form.

I wanted to get political asylum in the United States, but I realized that it was not so easy. I was ready for the fact that I would have to collect a whole bunch of documents and answer many questions, but this did not stop me. The only obstacle for me was a complete lack of understanding where to start. I accidentally found Usa-immigrations.com on the Internet. All the information you need is there. I easily found and downloaded the form I needed, and also learned the entire list of required documents.

A very useful site for those who want to leave for America and do not know what documents need to be collected and how to arrange everything correctly. I had to face such a problem and I was able to solve it thanks to the site Usa-immigrations.com. All the information gathered here is not only useful, but also very necessary. In addition, the site staff constantly update it, so it is absolutely reliable.

It is not an easy task to issue documents to travel to the USA. Even if you know their entire list, that's not all. To obtain a visa, you must fill out the forms and if even a minor mistake is made, they will be returned to you. At Usa-immigrations.com there is more than a list of documents and forms that can be easily downloaded. Each form is accompanied by detailed instructions on how to fill it out correctly. It is very convenient. I liked the site very much, it is simple and easy to use.

I have been living in America with my family for a long time and am a citizen of this country. I decided to lure my mother to her. I began to find out what documents are needed for this. One friend advised the site Usa-immigrations.com, said that it had all the necessary information. Indeed, here I found out what documents are required. I needed to complete a Form I-130. I also found it on this site and downloaded it. Thanks to the instructions for filling it out, I was able to quickly complete everything and send the documents for consideration.
