Why did u make an info pass appt? Has it been longer than 120 days since hin naturalization interview? The Spouse should be able to attend the infopass meeting


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

you don't have to wait that long, but chances are they will say ur within the 120 day time frame, but doesn't hurt to ask!!

It can take up to 120 days after the interview, but you can call USCIS Customer Support and they will take a Service Request and notify the office where you were interviewed to send a notification on the status of the case after 90 days. Since it's only been 70 days, I'm afraid they won't have much more information than that at the Infopass. The Service Request (from my experience) helps most people that have been waiting over 90 days.

Keep in mind all Service Requests may take up to 45 days for you to receive a response or your N-445 (Oath Letter). Hope I helped.


I just work Tier I (civilian) customer service for USCIS and have been in many types of scenarios over the years. I am filled with Immigration knowledge.

I believe I can help make everyones process simpler by helping out, even if its something small like a forum

So, thats me. If you need help I may be able to assist feel free to PM me if I haven't seen your post yet.

USCIS Customer Service: 1 800 375 5283 (M-F 8AM-6PM in all US Timezones including territories)

In any case, I may be around from time to time. I understand the frustration that you guys go through over something that should be so much simpler.

Hi dcn08,

We decided not to bother with the infopass appointment, for the exact reason USCIS CSR mentioned. We will wait the 90 days and then contact the USCIS by phone and request a notification on the status of his case. My husband would have to take time off work to go for the infopass, so he deiced to wait a little longer...hopefully the letter is on it's way. Did you get your letter yet?

USCIS CSR

Thanks for the info!

What if the entire 120 days goes by and nothing? what do we do then? I am really hoping it will not get to that but am curious on what happens.

Thanks!

Hi everyone,

Just waiting for oath letter, made and infopass appointment for next week, just wondering what to expect. The appointment is for my husband. Will they let me go in with him? Thanks for any info.

We were both allowed in "the room" where about 30 people were waiting when we made an infopass appointment. It was awful. There was no privacy and the booth where we talked with the USCIS agent was in the same room. EVERYONE could hear everything we talked about it. They were unhelpful and it was a waste of time, but that was just our one time experience.

Have you tried contacting your U.S. Senator or Rep's office? They were extremely helpful to us!

Thanks for sharing your experience.

No we have not contacted anyone yet. Form what we hear this is all within the 120 days and there is not much that can be done. We are optimistic that all this will be resolved and we will get our letter very soon.

How soon after the interview did you contact your representative?

Thanks in advance for the information.
