This guide should provide helpful tips for citizenship eligible applicants.
On the day of your interview, be sure to arrive 15-20 minutes before the scheduled time to account for any potential delays.
Know the Directions
Before the day of your interview, drive to the site beforehand so that you are familiar with the drive and parking options.
Bring copies of documents
The interviewer will review Form N-400 so while you are waiting, review the entire application and remember dates of travel.
Think before answering
Before answering the "Yes or No" questions at the end of the application, understand the content of each question before answering. In some instances, the interviewer may attempt to question your understanding of the question so do not quickly answer "yes" or "no" before proper comprehension.
Be prepared with employment or marriage details
If your green card was marriage or employment based, be sure to know the dates, times, locations, addresses, and occupational details for all as the interviewer will likely want to confirm the basis of your eligibility for citizenship.
If you do not understand a question, do not hesitate to ask the interviewer to slow down or repeat the question.
If you have ever committed a crime and are unsure how to answer, always be honest with your background regardless of what you believe will be the outcome. If you have committed a crime of any nature, bring certified copies of criminal docket sheets with the final disposition of the case.
