VSC Oath Taking?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know when and where the oath taking ceremony takes place at the VSC?


K1 Process

6-28-2004 Submitted I-129F Petition for Alien Fiancee

7-9-2004 Received NOA1 (receipt notice)

7-28-2004 Received NOA2 (approval notice)

8-2-2004 Received NVC notice saying my petition was being processed and would be delivered to the US Embassy in Manila within a week.

8-16-2004 Called US Embassy in Manila to verify they had received my petition for my fiancee and inquire as to approx how long before she receives her K1 packet. Nice lady informed me they received my petition on July 30th and that my fiancee would be receiving her packet in about 1 week and that her K1 interview date at the embassy was October 22nd.

8-27-2004 My fiancee Ann received her K1 packet

9-16-2004 Sent my I-134 Affadavit of Support (and supporting documents/evidence) via FedEx to my fiancee. Was delayed 1 day because Mail Boxes Etc. didn't tell me I needed to declare a value for the photos I was sending as additional evidence.

9-28-2004 Ann's medical exam at St. Luke's (Day 1)

9-29-2004 Ann's medical exam at St. Luke's (Day 2)

10-19-2004 I fly back to the Philippines to attend Ann's K1 interview with her.

10-20-2004 I arrive in the Philippines

10-22-2004 Ann's K1 interview at the US Embassy...she's APPROVED!!!

10-30-2004 We arrive back in Vermont, USA to begin our new life together.

11-20-2004 We got MARRIED (reception on January 8th)!!!

AOS and EAD process

11-12-2004 Applied for Ann's SSN

11-22-2004 Received Ann's SSN

11-24-2004 Applied to change Ann's name on her SS card to her new married name.

11-30-2004 Sent Ann's completed Adjustment of Status and Employment Authorization documents to the Vermont Service Center via UPS (they received it on 12-01-2004).

12-04-2004 Received Ann's new SS card with her new married name on it.

12-09-2004 Ann's AOS and EAD packet was returned to us because we submitted it to the wrong place (Vermont Service Center).

12-13-2004 Resubmitted Ann's AOS and EAD packet to the correct place (the address of the Vermont Sub Office per the letter we received explaining why it had been returned the first time).

12-27-2004 Received NOA receipt forms for Ann's AOS and EAD.

12-30-2004 Got Ann's Biometrics and Fingerprinting done at the local sub office.

2-1-2005 Received Ann's EAD (Employment Authorization).

2-14-2005 Received NOA telling us Ann's interview for adjustment of status is scheduled for March 14th.

3-14-2005 Ann's Adjustment of Status interview at Vermont Sub-Office...she's APPROVED!!! Her Conditional Permanent Resident (green) card will arrive in 5 - 8 days.

3-21-2005 Received Ann's Conditional Permanent Resident (green) card and NOA welcoming her to the United States of America.

They don't take place at the VSC. Sometimes there are in Montpelier (Usually Sep 11), and other times they are in Burlington. Haven't heard of anywhere else...yet!

Your Citizenship interview will be held at your local office not the VSC.... the oath ceremony is held about 4 - 5 times a year...

The ceremony is often not at a local office. Certainly not in VT anyway.

Thanks for that, Verika. That is gold dust! I see they have stopped ceremonies in Montpelier. I think they couldn't cope with security last time I heard about it!

Have a great time. :)

Does anyone know if there is a naturalization calendar available for Massachusetts? Or, at least, how often the oath ceremonies take place? Do you have to go to the one allocated to you, or can you request to go elsewhere (e.g. if a ceremony is taking place in a different town but a month earlier)? Only, 2 months seems an awfully long time to have to wait to take the oath after the interview. If that is indeed the case, then I'm probably definitely screwed when it comes to having any remote chance of being able to vote this year... (I haven't given up hope yet!)
