Can I reapply for naturalization if I meet the residency requirements? 9 Answers as of August 19, 2011I was denied naturalization last week because by the date of application I didn't have 2.5 years of physical presence. Now I do. Can I re apply now? The denial was without prejudice. I stupidly relied on my lawyer thinking that I can apply 3 months before residency requirement is fullfilled and now I understand that 3 months rule applies only to continuous residency and not physical. Can I reapply now as I meet physical residency requirement?

Yes, if you qualify now, you can apply now. These are the required "time" for application. Permanent resident for 5 years (no trips outside the US for 6 months or longer); 2.5 years of physical presence; and residing at least 3 months in the district in which you are filing.
