    Answered . Depends upon who is your employer:
    •The United States government, including the Military
    •Contractors of the United States government
    •A recognized American institution of research
    •A public international organization
    •An organization designated under the International Immunities Act?
    If one of these, you may request an expedite. They will consider it.

    Answered . No you can not. either you have to wait until the oath ceremony and then leave or leave after withdrawing your application which will then delay your chances by another 4-5 years after you come back as you will lose your physical presence, as well as continuous presence required for NATURALIZATION, not NEUTRalization.
