What Happens During My Interview?

It does not matter whether you live in San Diego, California or Portland, Maine, from Seattle, Washington, to Miami, Florida, the procedure of your naturalization interview will be relatively the same. 

As soon as you enter the USCIS officer’s office, you will be sworn-in to make sure that you answer truthfully to every question presented. The officer will then ask for your green card, and for the interview letter you received in the mail. Next, comes the fun part. Assuming you do not meet any exceptions to taking the tests, during the interview the USCIS officer will test your basic ability to read, write, and speak English and your knowledge of United States civics. 

After passing the tests, the USCIS officer will review your application to make sure the information there is accurate and truthful. If there are no changes, the USCIS officer will ask you to sign the application. Congratulations! You have now become a United States citizen. You will receive a letter in the mail with the time and date of your oath ceremony.
