What is the process for scheduling a naturalization interview?

  3. Naturalization Interview: Approximately 3 to 5 months after filing Form N-400, USCIS will mail the naturalization interview appointment notice. At the interview, a USCIS officer will review your application, ask you questions about your background, immigration history, and administer an English and civics test.
  4. Oath of Allegiance: Within a few weeks after your naturalization interview, you should receive a notice to attend your Oath of Allegiance ceremony, which is the final step in the naturalization process.
