    I will file that soon, along with my naturalization, N-400 should not be tied to I-751, they should adjudicate them together.

    <<<However, the applicant may still be able to natz under 329.>>>

    NOT maybe, the applicant is able to natz under 329 because the EO is still active. If INS gives you trouble about that, you can push the issue through your chain of command which my friend did it. His natz application was sent back saying he didn't remove conditions, JAG looked into the matter and now he is going for his natz interview.

    Hello there,

    I am currently serving in the United States Army and I am a conditional resident, also currently I am working on gathering up my naturalizarion application together which I got stuck at fingerprints today, MPs really don't know much about how INS is very picky about the fingerprints, they smudged my prints all over, so I have to wait 2 weeks to get them again, since you can do it only once a week and next week I am in the field. Next time I am going to ask them to print my own fingerprints.

    If you have questions about joining the military with a greencard, let me know.

    INA 216- conditional LPR
    INA 316- general naturalization requirements
    INA 328- one year military service & LPR
    INA 329- active duty during period of conflict and LPR or physical presence in US at enlistment

    8 CFR 329.2 "(c) Satisfies the permanent residence requirement in one of the following ways:

    (1) Any time after enlistment or induction into the Armed Forces of the United States, the applicant was lawfully admitted to the United States as a permanent resident; or

    (2) At the time of enlistment or induction, the applicant was physically present in the geographical territory of the United States, the Canal Zone, American Samoa, Midway Island (prior to August 21, 1959), or Swain's Island, or in the ports, harbors, bays, enclosed sea areas, or the three-mile territorial sea along the coasts of these land areas, whether or not the applicant has been lawfully admitted to the United States as a permanent resident;"

    For conditional LPRs, to ensure that the alien was properly admitted, the officer can require an I-751. This isn't spelled out in the statutes for naturalization, but it is in INA 216 and inferred through policy for natz. If they think the marriage was a sham, then there is no LPR status, then the applicant can not naturalize under 328. However, the applicant may still be able to natz under 329.

    Bushmaster, where are you? Tell them how it's going.

    You can file anytime you are in active military service. There is no residence/physical presence requirement (other than being an LPR to enlist) when applying for the military expedited naturalization. However, the officer approving your naturalization can require an I-751 if you are a conditional resident.

    Once u join with a conditional greencard how does it work. Do i still have to file I-751 or i can file for citizenship directly after being 1 year in the service?

    Lionround: You may want to Know:

    As per Sec. 329 (2) at any time subsequent to enlistment or induction such person shall have been lawfully admitted to the United Stes for permanent residence. No period of service in the Armed Forecs shall be made the basis of a application for naturalization under this section

    Some interesting things you may want to know:

    1. Non US Citizens cannot become an office no matter what your degree; however, after you get your citizenship you can apply for officer status.
    2. You cannot join enlisted unless you have a GC.
    3. Go to goarmy.com and you can chat with a recruiter online.
    4. For your education, you need to be evaluated to determine your status.
    5. The military cannot help you get a GC.
    6. Any foreign national who serves in the US military will be automatically eligible for US citizenship.
    7. Non US citizens cannot hold a security clearance and thus cannot serve aboard a submarine among other things.
    8. They waive the $350 application fee.

    Yea, America is a great country, but, please don't join the military just for papers. It is getting pretty rough out there. After Irag then north Korea and so on. so please think twice, it takes more than that to be one of the greatest soldier in the world.
