How do I list regular trips outside the U.S. on Form N-400?


Some permanent residents live close to a U.S. border and have family or business purposes for routine trips across the border. When applying for U.S. citizenship with Form N-400, you should make every effort to document the dates of these trips, particularly trips that are 5 days or longer. However, after five years, these trips can be too numerous to accurately document each date.

If this situation applies to you, write "Note: see addendum" in the space provided for the country in Part 9, question 3. You must be sure to include a separate sheet of paper that describes the situation to the best of your ability.

To make the process a little easier, CitizenPath provides a downloadable Microsoft Word template. Download the N-400 Trips Attachment Template.
You can also download a sample document for your reference. Download the N-400 Trips Attachment Sample.

The template is a starting point. You can modify it to meet your needs. Upon completion, print a copy and place it behind your application.
