Hi Guys,

So I got my oath letter, but my husband and I had made plans to go to Turkey and bought our tickets already. I had mentionned it to my IO during the interview and he said... well don't panick, just bring proof of travel and the oath ceremony can be changed.

But I am still freaking out because I don't want this to look like I am not interested in becoming a citizen because I AM!! I don't want it to look bad on my application... I don't know what to do!

Please help! (sorry for sounding so dramatic)

Hi,

First of all let me Congratule you for getting ur Oath letter.

when its ur Oath ceremony? and when u leaving? and when u returning.

because. if u go to Turkey, that means u have to reschedule ur appointment, and when u travel u dont know when u will receive the next Oath letter, Maybe next week of ur travel ? then If u miss ur Oath 2 times, ur application will be denied.

Please wait for better answer.

You're fine, actually. You have passed the interview already and had travel plans in place. Just go to the USCIS office with your travel tickets and respectfully ask them for to re-schedule your ceremony to a date after your return. They won't have a problem with this. When you do go to your new oath date, bring along your passport as you will update your 'out of country' data at the time. As long as this does not redefine your residential or physical presence requirements to be less than the minimum required for citizenship it won't be a problem at all.

Enjoy your trip and don't worry - you will get your citizenship at a new Oath ceremony after you return. Not a problem :) .

Ditto. My roommate's oath letter arrived while he was overseas and requested that his oath ceremony be deferred. He was rescheduled for a new oath ceremony on Feb. 15th (initial date was Jan 9th i think)

Nobody will "look down" on you.

At my Oath Ceremony they had 50 single file lines processing 3,500 applicants twice that day (for a total of 7,000) within about 1 hour or so. Nobody even had time to look up; it's like a Texas cattle drive with foreigners. Los Angeles processes 6,000 applicants twice a day (for a total of 12,000) in the same time frame. You are nothing but a long number in the system.

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Thanks Everyone for you help!

We are leaving for Istabbul on the 22nd and then moving on to Karachi from there. The trip is a total of 3 weeks and we will be back on the 15th of March.

My next question is, do I make an Infopass appointment or do I mail the Oath letter notification back with my itinerary?

My husband thinks I should mail it back but I really think I should speak to someone face to face... Or should I just call them?

thanks so much!
