the individual has resided, worked or gone to school within the United States or its territories. As a result of this limitation,

5-years may not be considered complete. The Inspection Service may be able to process inquiries for U.S. Citizens only,

check because of residency outside the United States, such individuals will be ineligible for Postal employment.
