COVID-19: How to Reschedule U.S. Naturalization Oath Ceremony

by | May 27, 2020

One of the most common questions from clients during the COVID-19 pandemic has been “how do I reschedule my naturalization oath ceremony after it was postponed by USCIS due to the coronavirus?”

Eager applicants who have waited months to attend their oath ceremonies after going through the N-400 process to become U.S. citizens through naturalization finally have a clear answer to this question today.

USCIS issued the following guidance on naturalization oath ceremonies today:

“USCIS will send notices to applicants to reschedule postponed naturalization ceremonies. The ceremonies may be shorter to limit exposure to those in attendance. Instead of playing videos during naturalization ceremonies, attendees will receive a flyer with information and links directing them to the videos on the USCIS website. Under the shortened format, all legally required portions of the ceremony will take place.

Attendance is limited to the naturalization candidate and individuals providing assistance to disabled persons.”

While this delay caused by COVID-19 in the U.S. naturalization process was unforeseen, it is very important to seek guidance from an experienced U.S. citizenship lawyer when filing your N-400 application to avoid foreseeable problems.

Our citizenship lawyers are able to identify and solve potential issues with your U.S. naturalization application in order to avoid mistakes that may cause substantial delays or may result in serious immigration consequences.
