I applied for Naturalization in October and did biometrics in November. Now I'm waiting for the interview and still haven't received a letter with the interview date.
I'm planning to travel out of US for 2 weeks and scared that I might have problems on customs when I come back.
Will I have any problems?
I will not miss the interview, because I will ask my friend to check mail while I'm out.
Its not a medical emergency trip or any emergency case.
Yes, you are free to travel abroad while the Naturalization case is pending. USCIS usually gives 6-8 weeks or more notice for interview appointments, and the biometrics appointment has already been completed. Of course, you always need to prove admissibility every time that you apply for admission.to the U.S. and will need a valid, unexpired passport and green card to re-enter. Enjoy your trip!
You should have no problem with a 2 week trip ... keep in touch with your friend and save your boarding passes.
