Can I file N-470 or can I only file I-131

Herndon, VA |

Hello
I have been an LPR since September 2010 (about 2.5 years) and I am currently considering an opportunity with the Indian arm of a US based corporation. Will I be eligible to file for a N-470 or can I only file I-131. If its I-131 what am I supposed to fill in the "Purpose of your trip" section in the I-131 form?
Thanks in Advance

  1. On I-131 purpose of trip question you can answer work, pleasure or miscellanous. On N-470 to preserve your time for naturalization purposes the company must be 51% owned US to qualify. Does "Indian arm of a US based company" mean more than 51% US owned? Thats the key question to your answer If not majority US owned than cannot qualify.
