yep, not till ur at the oath with the naturalization letter in ur hand!!

At the interview that may (or may not) say you passed, BUT your not a USA citizen until the COMPLETION of the oath ceremony.

Edited by flames9

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

Do you know when you can work for the goverment?

not al USA govt jobs require you to be a USA citizen, have to check the posting. If they require you to be a citizen, then you can't until you have COMPLETED the oath ceremony.

Where do you live? I'm sure they must have more than 1 oath ceremony a year!

Ya, I have been on VJ now since 2004,lol

Ironically, my wife had to read the oath to her IO at the interview, then sign it, but left as a LPR the way she came in. During the oath ceremony, didn't sign anything, and could have just lip synced if indeed anyone was watching her, but weren't, too busy reading the oath. But that is when she became a USC, she signed her certificate at home.

Upgrading a Petition - If You Were an LPR and Now are an American Citizen

If you filed a petition for your family member when you were a lawful permanent resident (LPR), and now you are an U.S. citizen, you must upgrade the petition from family second preference (F2) to immediate relative (IR). You can do this by sending proof of your citizenship to the National Visa Center (NVC). To prove that you are a U.S. citizen, you can send:

A copy of the biodata page of your U.S. passport; or

A copy of your certificate of naturalization

Important Notice: If you are now a U.S. citizen, you must file separate immigrant visa petitions for each of your children. If you upgrade a family second preference (F2) petition for your family member and you did not file separate petitions for your children when you were a lawful permanent resident (LPR), you must do so now. A child does not have derivative status in an immediate relative (IR) petition. This is different from the family second preference (F2) petition. A child is included in his/her parent's F2 petition. A child is not included in his/her parent's IR petition.
