Docs to bring to oath ceremony

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Still waiting for my oath letter to come in the mail and decided to start gathering the docs I needed to bring to the oath ceremony. You see, I've been a permanent resident for over 20 yrs and decided to just file for citizenship this year. 

 

Do I have to bring ALL my green cards even the expired ones? Or just the current one? What about passports? Do I have to bring ALL passports including the expired ones? What else should I bring?

Congratulations! 

 

Green cards... they took my expired one at my interview and for the ceremony I brought my other two. I had a name change that's why I had two. 

 

I'd say bring them all. 

 

They didn't need my passport but bring them just in case. I brought my complete document folder haha

 

Also they'll need your oath ceremony invitation because it has a questionnaire on the back.

Ahh... I can't seem to find my very first green card (which is expired) that was issued to me. 😫

Well you still have a few days until you receive the letter and actually have the ceremony. If it doesn't fall into your hands by that time, don't worry about it too much.  

Thank you! I hope my mom has it since she hoards a lot of old docs. 😂 and maybe just ask her to mail it to me. If she doesn't, hope it won't be an issue at the oath ceremony. 🤞🏻

Just the oath letter and your most recent green card will suffice.  You don't need to bring your passport unless you have travelled out of the US between the interview date and your oath date.

 

I don't have my 2-year GC either, I destroyed it later myself after getting the 10-year GC.

Great to know this because I don't plan on bringing a file folder with me with bunch of documents. 😂

Do we need to bring 3 year worth of tax for the interview?

You need to start your own thread since you are asking about a different subject :) 

 

As a general rule, you should bring copies of whatever documents you submitted with your application, and/or originals of whatever copies you sent with your application.
