Finally...on Friday, May 30. I had my Oath Ceremony in Jefferson City, MO. Everything went very well and quick. There was 39 people from 22 different countries. After ceremony I was able to register as a voter and apply for US passport.

I'm glad my USCIS journey is over, it took me a little less then 6 years from the begining....and 11 months N-400 itself .

I wish to all who are still waiting....just hang on....you will get there..I know waiting is hard...but there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

congrats


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1
