No shoes, no shirt, no service?

 

Be respectful in your attire, but no need for a suit/formal dress or something similar IMO. You aren't going to be approved or denied on your attire.

Just dress appropriately. My husband went into his appointment with jeans, a button up shirt and converse. You don’t have to go in with a suit, tie and dress shoes. 😂 Unless you want to..? Lol. Good luck on your interview!

My wife had her interview a few weeks ago and her oath ceremony last Friday.  She dressed as if she was going to an interview.  I do not know of any dress code but my suggestion is to look your best.  

 

  At the oath ceremony she wore her best and I was in a suit.  There were 150 people taking the oath plus tons of family/friends (Atlanta USCIS center).  I saw everything from traditional dress from the future new citizen's home country (which I thought was awesome) to people with ball caps (in my option was not acceptable).  Taking the oath is a huge deal and the new citizens there were following the steps of millions of people before us.  

 

Best of luck in the interview tomorrow.

 

God bless

No matter please go in your formals (business causal shall be fine as well). I personally went on with suit for both my interview and oath ceremony. This kind's of things do not happen again and again and so give your best for one of your life altering day. 2 cents.

 

In any way, good luck with your interview.
