¿Cuánto Tiempo se Puede Pasar Fuera de Estados Unidos para Seguir Siendo Elegible para Solicitar la Naturalización?

January 4th, 2023

La mayoría de los residentes permanentes en los Estados Unidos todavía tienen muchos lazos fuertes y familias en su país de origen. Sin embargo, pasar demasiado tiempo fuera de los Estados Unidos puede afectar negativamente la capacidad de una persona para mantener su estatus de residente permanente legal, así como su elegibilidad para solicitar la naturalización o ciudadanía Americana.

Un abogado de inmigración capacitado puede explicarle las complejas leyes de inmigración que rigen cuánto tiempo una persona puede pasar fuera de los Estados Unidos y aun así mantener su residencia permanente. Existen reglas estrictas que dictan cuánto tiempo una persona debe estar presente físicamente en los EE. UU. para mantener su estatus de residente permanente legal. Estas reglas incluyen el requisito de que los residentes no solo deben estar físicamente presentes en el país y poseer un domicilio, sino que deben residir permanentemente en los Estados Unidos. Si bien es probable que viajar por períodos cortos no tenga un impacto en el estatus legal de un residente, los períodos más largos pueden interpretarse como un abandono de su estatus como residente legal permanente.

La cantidad de días que un residente permanente legal esté fuera de los EE. UU. también afectará directamente su elegibilidad para solicitar la naturalización como ciudadano de los Estados Unidos. Entonces, si desea saber cuánto tiempo puede pasar fuera de los EE. UU. y aún ser elegible para la ciudadanía, nuestros abogados de inmigración pueden ayudarlo a comprender sus derechos y sus obligaciones. Llame a FitzGerald Law Company hoy al (617) 303-2600 para una consulta de caso.

¿Cuánto Tiempo Puedo Estar Fuera del País y Seguir Siendo Elegible para Solicitar la Naturalización?

Al solicitar la ciudadanía estadounidense a través del proceso de naturalización con los Servicios de Ciudadanía e Inmigración de los Estados Unidos (USCIS), los residentes permanentes legales deben saber cómo viajar fuera del país puede afectar su elegibilidad para la naturalización. Un residente permanente debe cumplir con dos requisitos distintos, pero estrechamente relacionados en relación con el tiempo que pasó fuera de los EE. UU. para ser elegible para la naturalización, la residencia continua y la presencia física.

Los residentes permanentes legales de los Estados Unidos deben “residir permanentemente” en los EE. UU. Si una persona pasa una cantidad significativa de tiempo fuera de los EE. UU., entonces el gobierno puede sospechar que esta ya no reside aquí. El lugar de “residencia” de una persona es comúnmente el lugar donde tiene su hogar, trabajo, escuela, familia, licencia de conducir, seguro médico, médicos, cuenta bancaria, finanzas,  y es generalmente el lugar donde pasan la mayor parte de su tiempo. Es un requisito para todos los residentes permanentes legales residir en los EE. UU. y generalmente no se les permite “residir” fuera de los EE. UU. a menos que se aplique una exención especial (es decir, servir en el ejército de los EE. UU., …)

El Requisito de Residencia Continua

Los residentes permanentes legales generalmente tendrán que cumplir con un requisito de “residencia continua” para poder solicitar la naturalización. El período de “residencia continua” más común es de 5 años y se aplica a todos los solicitantes que no califican para una exención. Para lograr la residencia continua en los Estados Unidos, el solicitante debe residir continuamente en el país durante un mínimo de 57 meses antes de presentar su N-400, Solicitud de Naturalización / Ciudadanía Americana.

Algunos Residentes Permanentes Legales no tienen que esperar 5 años para convertirse en ciudadanos naturalizados. Se les permite presentar una N-400 después de solo 33 meses de residencia continua en los Estados Unidos. Si un residente permanente legal está casado con un ciudadano estadounidense y vive con él durante 33 meses, será elegible para presentar una N-400 y convertirse en ciudadano naturalizado después de solo 3 años. Este estándar de 3 años también se usa para algunas personas que recibieron su residencia a través de VAWA o a quienes les aprobaron su I-751 por ser víctimas de violencia doméstica.

Para un pequeño número de Residentes Permanentes Legales no hay período de espera, como lo es para cierto personal militar o algunos niños menores que residen con un padre biológico o adoptivo que es ciudadano estadounidense.

El requisito de presencia física

La presencia física es un requisito estrechamente relacionado con la regla de residencia continua, pero es un estándar diferente que también debe cumplirse. En el caso de que se aplique un requisito de residencia continua, la persona generalmente deberá haber estado físicamente presente en los EE. UU. durante más de la mitad del período requerido. La presencia física se calcula por cada día o parte de un día que una persona se encuentra físicamente en los EE. UU.

La presencia física, a diferencia de la residencia continua, es un requisito acumulativo. Esto significa que cada día que la persona estuvo en los Estados Unidos durante el período de residencia se calculará para determinar la presencia física. Si USCIS determina que un residente permanente pasó más tiempo fuera de los Estados Unidos, esto podría evitar que la persona sea elegible para solicitar la naturalización.

Interrupción del requisito de residencia continua

Si bien los residentes permanentes pueden viajar libremente al extranjero, los viajes extensos pueden interrumpir su residencia continua, impidiéndoles solicitar la naturalización. La ley de inmigración establece que si un residente permanente legal está fuera de los EE. UU. durante 180 días seguidos (pero menos de 1 año), sin permiso del gobierno de los EE. UU., se supondrá que la persona ha perdido o abandonado su residencia, y por lo tanto la persona ya no podrá solicitar la ciudadanía estadounidense. Esta presunción se puede superar, y la persona puede mantener su estatus de residente, pero solo con evidencia de que tenía la intención de permanecer como residente permanente legal en los EE. UU. Esta evidencia puede incluir declaraciones de impuestos de los EE. UU., registros relacionados con una vivienda en los Estados Unidos y una razón válida para el largo tiempo que la persona pasó en el extranjero. Si el residente permanente estuvo fuera de los EE. UU. durante más de un año, generalmente no se puede superar la pérdida de la residencia.

La residencia también puede verse interrumpida por “residir” fuera de los EE. UU., independientemente de su duración. “Residir” generalmente se refiere al lugar donde una persona trabaja, estudia, tiene una casa o apartamento, tiene una licencia de conducir, tiene su seguro médico o se dedica a otras actividades que lo vinculan a esa comunidad de manera sustancial y no temporal.

¿Sigo Siendo Elegible para Solicitar la Ciudadanía Americana / Naturalización si he Estado Fuera del País por más de Seis Meses pero Menos de un Año?

Todavía puede ser elegible para solicitar la naturalización si estuvo ausente de los Estados Unidos durante 180 días continuos (aproximadamente 6 meses) pero menos de un año. Sin embargo, debe superar la presunción de que interrumpió su residencia. En general, un residente permanente legal no puede pasar 180 días seguidos fuera de los EE. UU. Hay algunas excepciones, incluso si está trabajando para el gobierno de los EE. UU. en un país extranjero, si está sirviendo en el ejército de los EE. UU. o si se le ha otorgado un permiso especial de reingreso después de haber presentado una solicitud con Formulario I-131 ante USCIS.

Si no hay una excepción que le permita estar fuera de los EE. UU. durante este período (de 180 días a 1 año), deberá proporcionar evidencia de que aún mantuvo la residencia en los Estados Unidos mientras estuvo en el extranjero y que no la abandonó. Algunas pruebas que pueden demostrar esto incluyen pruebas de que no finalizó su empleo en los Estados Unidos, pruebas de que no obtuvo empleo mientras estaba en el extranjero y pruebas de que presentó correctamente sus declaraciones de impuestos en los Estados Unidos con todas las declaraciones requeridas de ingresos extranjeros. La residencia también se puede probar si su familia inmediata permaneció en los Estados Unidos, su familia mantuvo sus trabajos o continuó estudiando en los EE. UU. y usted mantuvo pleno acceso a su hogar en los EE. UU. Hay muchas maneras de demostrar que no ha abandonado su estatus de residente permanente legal estando fuera de los EE. UU. continuamente durante 180 días o más, y nuestros abogados de inmigración pueden ayudarlo a combatir la presunción de que su residencia fue abandonada si estuvo este tiempo por fuera.

¿Todavía Puedo Solicitar la Naturalización / Ciudadanía si he Estado Ausente del País Durante un Año o más?

Si un residente permanente legal está fuera del país de forma continua durante un año o más, su estado de residencia terminará automáticamente, lo que dificultará en gran medida su elegibilidad para la naturalización, a menos que haya recibido un permiso o un permiso de reingreso, de USCIS o el Consulado de los EE. UU. o si se aplica una excepción especial.

Al igual que los residentes permanentes legales que han estado fuera durante 180 días consecutivos, existen algunas excepciones que permiten a un residente estar fuera de los EE. UU. durante períodos prolongados, lo que incluye trabajar para el gobierno de los EE., servir en las fuerzas militares de Estados Unidos, o solicitando un permiso especial de reingreso presentando una Solicitud del Formulario I-131 ante USCIS.

Si usted es un residente permanente legal que ha estado fuera de los EE. UU. continuamente durante 1 año o más, será difícil para usted probar que todavía tiene un estatus de residente válido, y puede tomar muchos años para que usted sea elegible para la naturalización. Antes de solicitar la ciudadanía de los Estados Unidos, es importante asegurarse de que su estatus de residente permanente legal sea válido y de que no corra el riesgo de perder su estatus debido a un período prolongado fuera de los EE. UU. Nuestros abogados de inmigración pueden ayudarlo a determinar las mejores opciones disponibles para usted si desea regresa a los EE. UU. después de un año o más.

Ubicación de la Oficina de USCIS con Jurisdicción para su N-400

En general, USCIS requiere que una persona esté “residiendo” en una jurisdicción, tal como un estado, territorio o distrito federal, durante 90 días antes de presentar su N-400. USCIS considerará el lugar donde la persona vive principalmente como su residencia para este propósito jurisdiccional.
