No dress code for biometrics, but are taking your photo now for your certificate, so comb your hair or whatever. Nothing more American than bluejeans, so they don't want you wearing those. Wife wore a very expensive business suit, but that was an overkill as she had a big fat woman IO that was wearing a black tent. Feel that worked against my wife. Would think dressing in a conservative fashion would be the best description for your interview.

There is no dress code but I would not go with jeans that have holes in it :)

Business casual is good.

Once you submit your application, you should get a notice of action (NOA) within two or three weeks. Also, your biometrics appointment is scheduled typically within the first month. In your case, it's been only 10 days, so you are fine. Two questions:

1. Did they cash your check?

2. Did you submit a G-1145, E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance with your N-400? If yes, did you receive a text message or an Email that they got your application?

You would be safe wearing what you might to a job interview...avoid denim, a shirt with a collar looks nice. They are not going to deny you based on how you dress in theorty, but look the part and look serious by dressing nicely that day.

I wore an expensive-looking pair of jeans (the dark kind that fit well), but in all my dealings with them I wore a nice collared button down shirt. But I had my sleeves rolled up and I don't tuck my shirts. No problems in biometrics (I do suggest your hair look nice and you're shaven, I forget this sometimes as I work from home), and no problems at the interview.

Pretty much no dress code exists. I usually dress up for occasions like this, but you would be surprised to see how badly people dress. Seeing probably over a 100 people horribly dressed in the lobby makes you think that its America.

Smart casual but no denim blue jeans would be my preferred style of dress. After all you are in a business area and government building. Just because there are some "poorly" dressed people who enter these buildings doesn't mean you should follow suit (pardon the pun). You're not there to make a fashion statement. Well groomed is good but ladies can leave their ball gowns and diamond tiaras at home. :lol:

answer:1. i did not send in a check..i apply for a free waiver

2. what is the E-Notication stuff? coz i apply with a hardcopy..i did not apply online

The G-1145 form is a hard-copy form that you can include with your N-400 application. It is not an online form.

This is an optional form if you would like to receive an Email and/or text message from USCIS once they receive your application.

I do not know anything about the fee waiver and what qualifications you need for it. Others may chime in.

I don't remember where I read it, but if I'm not mistaken, they do specify a dress code for the oath ceremony. I remember reading no jeans and some other things. I don't know if they enforce it but better to look nice anyway. Especially when going to your interview. Business casual is fine.

'Appropriate attire' was mentioned in the instructions I got with the interview letter. They just want to make sure people don't come in half naked. That sort of a thing.
