As per the regulations, USCIS has 120 days to make a decision on an application for naturalization from the date of examination (i.e. interview date). However, please note they are not bound by this time frame, they may take even longer. Generally, if there are no issues, the entire naturalization process can take anywhere from 6-8 months. Good luck.


I agree with my colleagues.
