Where to fill out Oath ceremony questionnaire

26 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So the oath ceremony questionnaire you get in the mail that you're supposed to bring to the ceremony it does say not to fill it out till day of ceremony. Does it matter where it's filled out on that day? Can it be filled out at home before going to ceremony or does it need to be filled out and signed in USCIS' officers presence at the ceremony?

@corvusheart you can fill it anywhere and please sign it and keep it ready for the officers to quickly verify it. 

It doesn't need to be signed in their presence?

I thought it did. And it would be stupid to sign it in advance if there was any possibility that it need to be signed in front of an official.

 

because we are talking about a couple of seconds to sign.

@corvusheart I can't speak for all locations but here at Campbell, CA we were told to sign and keep the paper ready for inspection by officer. There were four lines and a total of 450+ applicants, so yes, you can be one of those who sign when the officer is right there in front of you as well... :)

Ok so then he should fill it out at home and then not sign it until he's in front of the officer?

I signed mine inside the building while waiting in line. There was a long line for the final IO interview so they expected you to have it signed already. Afterwards, there was another line to hand them out your gc and sign the nat cert.. Protocol might be different though for other locations. Congrats!

I would speak based on what is mandatory and required by USCIS. I will fill out the form on the day of the ceremony.

I filled out my the form the day of my ceremony because we were instructed to do it before the ceremony took place.

Every oath ceremony are different, but I just followed what was being told on the form.

On the form it says take any USCIS documents with you. We've built up quite a collection of them. Which ones are we supposed to bring other than the oath letter?

You mean this? You only have to bring the documents that are applicable to your spouse. I brought my expired EAD, conditional expired green card and my 10 year green card and of course the N-445 and surrendered to them on the day of my oath taking.

 

Please bring the following with you:
• This notice with the reverse side completed. Please refer to instructions on the reverse side.
• Your Permanent Resident Card ("green card").
• All Reentry Permits or Refugee Travel Documents you may have, valid or expired.
• Any other documents USCIS issued to you

Not sure how the oath taking on your area. When I had my oath taking the IO told us to fill out the form when we're all seated and settled.

We haven't seen his EAD card in years. His conditional green card was taken by USCIS when he got his stamp in his passport. Obviously have his 10 year card.

Think about it logically. If they wanted him to fill it out at the ceremony check in, they wouldn't have given it to him in advance. It's to save time getting people in and situated. There was over 2000 people queuing  to get in the door at my ceremony. Fill it out and sign it and be on your way.

It's not all your files. It's his greencard. Turn in his greencard. He'll leave with a naturalization certificate.
