  • Disclose visit to Pakistani naval ship in New York Harbor on N-400?

    Today, my wife and I visited several naval vessels that offer tours to
    the public during "Fleet Week" in New York Harbor. Among the ships
    (which also include American, British, Canadian, and French vessels) was
    a Pakistan Navy ship, which we also toured.

    Since we thus technically (or at least kinda/sorta) stepped onto
    Pakistani soil, do we need to disclose this fact during the
    naturalization process? Could it cause any problems/delays with the
    various background/security checks done for naturalization?

    The N-400 only asks for trips lasting more than 24 hours (for this
    reason, I actually dropped a few trips to Tijuana and Japan from the
    N-400. Yes, I've been to Japan for four hours).

    Regardless, I don't think that this is considered Pakistani soil per se,
    although it may have been outside US jurisdiction.

    As for the background/security checks: I'd be very surprised. They won't
    even find out about the visit unless you tell them (and you do remember
    the rule about not volunteering information they didn't ask for?)
