Default Does it count toward nationality..?

Hi..I would like to know whether working on board a cruise ship for a particular country would count towards your time to obtain that country's nationality?

So, for example, if you need 5 years to be a citizen of country X..you work 3 years on board a cruise ship which belongs to country X and then a further 2 years inside country X, would you qualify for citizenship?

I assume that being onboard a cruise ship means you are on that country's soil. Please correct me if I am wrong. Thanks

You have to be a legal immigrant in the US with proper paperwork and a 'green card' for five years, before you can apply for citizenship.

I was trying to tell you that working on a cruise ship does not count as living in the US.

I can't answer your question, either, but I will say that, IMHO, this is something you should ask a government employee in the country where you want to immigrate, not a cruise board.
I'm assuming it's not the US as the ship's here are registered under other countries "flags of convince" (i.e. Panama).
