Listing Physical Presence in the U.S.

  1. Listing Physical Presence in the U.S.
  2. Submitting a CRBA Application

Our office regularly receives inquiries asking how to list the times of physical presence in the United States.

The forms require parents to list all times they were physically present in the United States, as to the best of their knowledge. If you are unsure of the exact dates of travel in and out of the U.S. list the dates to your best estimate (even if this only lists the month and year). We appreciate that for frequent travelers the list may be comprehensive, but the information is required for the Consular Officer to determine your child’s eligibility for U.S. citizenship.
