Application for Naturalization Filing Update (Form N-400)

USCIS, September 22, 2016 The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has recently changed the application process for persons applying to become U.S. citizens. The application for naturalization (Form N-400) will now be processed electronically, and there are two important updates when filing this form.

The following updates apply to all applicants, except those that live overseas:

  1. Applicants no longer need to submit two passport-style photos with their application.
  1. Applicants will be scheduled for a biometric service appointment at a local Application Support Center (ASC) to fulfill required portrait photographs, fingerprints and signature, regardless of their age.

Applicants 75 years or over used to not be required to appear at an ASC to fulfill their fingerprint requirement by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). However, now that the application process is electronic and the USCIS has improved its fingerprint technology to capture fingerprints of all ages, those applicants are now required to appear. Applicants that are 75 years or older do not have to pay the biometrics service fee.

While all local USCIS facilities are accessible to individuals with disabilities, special arrangements can be made to accommodate elderly and disabled applicants that may be in the hospital or homebound. To request an accommodation, call the National Customer Service Center at 800-375-5283.
