How long will the delay be if I reschedule a naturalization N-400 interview?

Asked about 1 year ago - San Francisco, CA

I have my N-400 naturalization interview scheduled for September 16, 2003 in San Francisco. I have made travel arrangements out of the country September 1 to September 21. Rescheduling my travel plans will cost a lot of money. If I ask USCIS to reschedule my interview, and they agree, how long will the delay likely be? I am asking because I have business travel plans in November and if USCIS reschedule my interview for that period, it might be even more difficult to cancel the November travel plans

    Answered . You can never tell how long it will take.

    You need to give serious consideration to what's more important, the trip in September or your citizenship.

    Answered . I've had rescheduled Naturalization interviews anywhere from 2-10 weeks from the original date. SF is usually reasonable with rescheduling, particularly with proof of pre-arranged travel.
