  1. Best answer

    Provide the info; it's not difficult. They want to definitely ascertain that you've lived the last 90 days in the jurisdiction of the office where you'll be interviewed.

  3. I agree with my colleague. You have to provide information asked the form.

  4. Hello,

    Thank you for posting your question.

    The N-400 actually only asks for the last five years (not 10 years) of your residential and employment history. These factors aid in determining whether you satisfy the continuous residence/physical presence requirement.

    However, under the travel section of the N-400, you do have to list all trips you have taken outside the U.S. for more than 24 hours since you became an Lawful Permanent Resident.

    Good luck!
