Should I file N400 online?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I prepared my form and documents and it is ready to mail but I just learned that I can file online. Does it get processes faster when we online?

Is it true that I will get bio-metrics and interview appointments immediately when I file online?

 

Thank you.

You can saved it until you decided that when you want to submit it , make sure check everything before you submit it , If you got mistakes in form and you do submit it , you still have chance to correct it when they call you for interview ,  I got couple mistakes online in my form and i correct it  with officers at my interview .

The Dallas field office is one of the most backlogged in the country, so filing online to shave a little time off would be advisable. It's also much more convenient. 

 

The only thing you will receive instantly is your receipt NoA. Your biometrics appointment will follow in a few days, and then your interview notice in about a year. 

 

You can begin your application and then save it for future submittal. I think from memory the online system will hold applications for up to 30 days before deleting them and making you start over.

Just to add.. By filing online, u have access to all documents and notices in your online account pretty quickly. The online thing saves your data for 30 days if you don't edit and save something. So let's say you start filling the form on day 1 and then don't do anything, after 30 days, ur data will be deleted. But if within those 30 days, you made some edits to the form and saved them, the 30 day clock will reset and then you will have 30 more days and so on... Most people don't fill the online form in 1 go. I started filling it about 30 days before my date of eligibility and gradually filled it before submitting it... Also "Should I file online" is not a question to be asked in 2019 as online systems (including governmental ones) have been pretty mature since some years now...
