The Residence Questionnaire requests “Travel Records and/or Records of Movement from all countries for which you have a passport or travel document.”
Contact the embassy or consulate of any country of which you are a citizen to find out if this information is available and what the process is for attaining it. Please note: if you were a refugee, do not contact the embassy or consulate of the country you sought refuge from except under the advice and counsel of a knowledgeable refugee lawyer. Contacting the embassy could be considered “re-availment” of the protection of your home country. This can put your refugee status, permanent residence and pending citizenship at risk.
