    Hey Mary:

    As far as I know, you CAN apply for citizenship after 5 yrs as permanent resident. You will have to check on the "consecutive months presence in US".

    You can actually call that 800# , have to stay on wait for a long time and then keep asking for supervisor or immigration officer---then you can ask him/her to pull your records and see if you can apply for citizenship. Takes a lot of patience and time to stay and ask the right questions. Remember---be NICE to whoever answers the phone. Friendly conversations usually gets you the answers.

    FYI: I finally did pay for the I-90, got biometrics done. Then made appointment via INFO PASS and got the STAMP in my passport. Funny thing is---they only gave me a 6 months STAMP instead of the usual 1 yr.

    Officer told me if I need to travel again, then I can go and get another STAMP---but no indication if I have to pay another $300+ for another STAMP though. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

      HI Mary:

      Try the INFOPASS. Make the appointment and then when you go and talk to the officers---be special nice, smile, friendly and pleasant. I find that it will attract all the positive answers. Not 100% of the time. But even if you don't get the answers you want to hear... be nice so they won't note you next time you appear again and or put something nasty in your file to cause you problems in the future.

      They will probably give you the N400 forms for citizenship application. You can still stay loyal to your birth country but look at this this way, if you live and work here in the US.... apply for the citizenship, PR is not so permannent anymore. There is such a thing as a dual citizenship---check into that, there is a way to do it legally. I have lots of friends (from Commonwealth countries) who are dual and multiple citizenships.

      Good luck.

                Whether you actually have the physical card does not affect whether you can apply for citizenship. You are an LPR, so you can apply.

                  Oh, and by the way, there is no such thing as a permanent green card. The older versions had no expiration date, but they were all recalled some time ago and those issued them required to get new ones. What Congress giveith, Congress take away, like green cards without expiration dates. However, status is uneffected by if a card is expired, current, being replaced. Your status is still LPR.
