The process of gaining citizenship rights in a different country can be a critical and tedious task to perform. You might not even know about the mistakes made, but it can certainly hinder the process of obtaining citizenship rights. Apart from this, it can even cause you to lose your citizenship rights and make you ineligible for it. This can be either on temporary basis or even permanently. It is essential to know about the correct time to initiate the immigration process and file for naturalization.
The candidate must furnish all essential information while applying for citizenship of another country. All information should be authentic and attested. In case of any discrepancy, you must explain the reasons for the mistakes made and produce supplementary documents as soon as possible.
In case you have been consistently travelling in the past 3-5 years, this could be a reason that your file gets delayed. Also, in case you have a criminal record against your name, this can also be a potential reason for delays in obtaining citizenship.

Below mentioned are the common mistakes people make while filing for US citizenship
Filing the application too early: In order to become a citizen of the United States, it is essential that the individual is a permanent resident in the US in the past 5 years. Being a green card holder is of utmost importance. If the individual applying is married to a person who has been a resident of the United States and has been a permanent resident since the past three years, then the individual can apply for citizenship after three years. The total time period from filing the neutralization to taking the interview can extend to a time period of three months in total.
Taking trips outside the United States: If you take long trips outside the United States on a regular basis, then this might affect the citizenship status and delay the residency. Make sure that the trips are less than 6 months and you spend almost 5 years as a permanent resident in the US.
Evidence of criminal practices: In case you have a criminal record attached to your name, this can also impact the citizenship status. It can cause potential delays. It is essential for the prospective candidate to have a good moral character in order to get citizenship.
