The goal of the interview is for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to decide whether you are eligible for U.S. citizenship.
You will receive an appointment notice a few weeks before your interview. Do NOT miss your interview appointment and be sure to arrive on time. Make sure you bring your Green Card and the other documents listed on your appointment notice.
At the start of your interview, a USCIS officer will explain the purpose of the interview, ask to see your identification, and place you under oath where you promise to tell the truth.
During your interview, a USCIS officer will ask you questions about your N-400 application and history, test your knowledge of U.S. government and history, and assess your ability to speak English. You should begin studying for your interview as soon as you submit your application. If you are unable to take the test in English you will need to apply for an exception to see if you can take the test in your language.
If you have a disability, you can ask for an interpreter or a family member there with you during your interview. You will need to request this on your citizenship application form or call USCIS before your interview. USCIS evaluates each request on a case-by-case basis. Learn about accommodations available to you during your interview and oath ceremony.
