Hello, I am a permanent resident since 2009. I am working in the U.S. Embassy in my birth country and every year i am visiting US in order to keep my "Green Card" active. As i have heard i can aply for citizenship if i have at least one year (out of 5) phisical presence in US and 5 years as permanent resident.
Is this mean that if i take one year unpaid leave with my current employeer and live for a year in the US, i can aplly for citizenship?
Also, do i need to continue working for the US government after the year i worked in US for private company in order to be eligeble for applying for US citizenship?
