Working aboard and security clearance

Can you still getting security clearance if you working aboard for a long period of time ?


There’s a lot of information that needs to be given in order to give a good answer.

-Where you working for a foreign government?
-How long were you living abroad?
-What was the nature of the work?
-What country were you working in? (There’s a difference between working in Australia and working in China)
-How recent was this activity?

You won’t be able to get much advice based on the lack of information in your question.
