USCIS has suspended Naturalization Oath Ceremonies

  • As of March 18, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has temporarily suspended routine in-person services through at least June 3 to help slow the spread of COVID-19. USCIS plans to begin reopening its offices on or after June 4, unless the public closures are extended further. USCIS staff will continue to perform duties that do not involve contact with the public.
  • USCIS will automatically reschedule ceremonies. Persons should expect to receive a notice for your rescheduled ceremony by mail. If you do not receive a notice within 90 days, please contact our law office.
  • In certain limited situations, USCIS may be able to perform small naturalization ceremonies for limited numbers of applicants, when it is feasible and all appropriate precautions can be taken.
  • Applicants who are requesting a name change must wait for a judicial ceremony.
