US Naturalization Interview

Once all the preliminary processes on your case are complete, USCIS will schedule an interview with you to complete the naturalization process. You must report to the USCIS office at the date and time on your appointment notice. Please bring the appointment notice with you.

It is very important not to miss your interview. If you have to miss your interview, you should write to the office where your interview is to be conducted as soon as possible and ask to have your interview rescheduled. Rescheduling an interview may add several months to the naturalization process, so make all attempts to attend your original interview date.

What To Expect at your Naturalization Interview

At the interview, you will meet with a USCIS officer and answer questions about your Form N-400.

You will take the English and civics tests, unless exempt. Find out more about the Civics, Reading, and Writing tests you will be required to complete.

USCIS will provide you with a notice of interview results following your interview.

In some cases, the USCIS officer will not be able to make a decision on your Form N-400 the day of your naturalization interview. In those cases, the USCIS officer will continue your case. This may include a request for you to provide additional evidence or require a second interview.
