As others have been I too was tripped up by the Foreign Contacts question. At first thought, no I don’t have contact with any foreign nationals. Not even on social media. After further analysis though I remembered that a friend of my spouse is married to a man from England. He’s been in the US now for many years (10+). I thought he was a naturalized citizen but apparently he is not. But after re-reading the question and then re-reading it again do I even need to report him? Yes, he’s married to a friend of my spouse but even my wife doesn’t talk to or see him. These people live in a different state. She talks to the friend and the friend comes to visit (by herself), but how does the association with the husband meet the close and continuous contact qualification? The last time I saw him was in 2017. I don’t communicate with him at all and I don’t really expect to see him again any time in the near future.
The problem now is that I didn’t list him on the SF-86 and I’ve submitted and released by forms to start the investigation. I haven’t heard from an investigator yet. I think I’m going to disclose this at the interview just so I can clear my mind/conscience, but I’m still wondering if that’s even necessary. And if I do disclose it in the interview will that cause me any problems? It was definitely an oversight on my part as I thought he was a naturalized US Citizen but after asking some questions found out he is not.
