I have been a US resident for 5 years and 9 months. However, I have made 3 consecutive trips (each of them lasting about 5 months, less than 6) outside of the country. I would like to know if I am still eligible to apply for citizenship now that I am back in the United States? Or if these trips might affect my application?

Based on the information you have provided, you are eligible to apply for naturalization. You are required to have resided in the United States 2 1/2 out of the past 5 years, prior to the filing of the application. You also must remain in the U.S. once you file the application.
You should review all of the requirements for naturalization at: www.uscis.gov & search "citizenship through naturalization".
You seem very much eligible for citizenship based on the information you provided. Marlene has rightly mentioned the legal requirement as well. Please feel free to contact us for any further information you may require.
