During the citizenship application process, applicants will have an interview with a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officer. At this interview, you will need to present documentation to support your citizenship application. This may include birth certificates, marriage licenses and proof of continuous residence in the United States. You probably submitted your documentation with your citizenship application, but you should also bring the original documents with you to the naturalization interview.
You should bring the original versions of the documentation you submitted with your citizenship application to the naturalization interview, including:
USCIS Form M-477 has a complete Document Checklist of documents to bring to your naturalization interview.
Naturalization can bring many rights and privileges, such as voting in elections and becoming eligible for certain government jobs. There are also financial benefits associated with becoming a United States citizen. Understanding all the rights and responsibilities associated with becoming a United States citizen is important before applying for naturalization.
