  1. Hi, I got it May 26, So I had a little over 2 weeks notice.
  2. I wanted to add a little Covid update. for Charlotte, NC in June it was: no guests, mandatory face covering, bring your own pen. The whole thing took 15 minutes including getting through security. 4 people at a time repeating the oath after getting the certificate and then on to the next people in line (6ft appart). No one allowed in more than 15 minutes prior to your appointment. It’s a quick in and out.
  3. Removing the mask wasn’t an option and the agents won’t hold any personal belongings. So I’m now sure who could take the photo for you. Your best bet is to take a photo outside of the USCIS office. I did a super quick selfie...
  4. Hello, I’m officially a citizen of the USA as of this morning. It was so different from what I anticipated pre-COVID... I texted my husband when I parked at the USCIS office at 7:44, at 8:02 I was back in my car. We were being let in the building one by one to maintain social distances, one security person had me read through laminated paper to answer basic question about Covid-19 exposure, then security check before being sent in the naturalization room. Everything was very efficient! There was one man ahead of me, I was almost immediately called, showed my papers, given my certificate to verify the information, then waited in a small line where my GC and interview paper were picked up. In the corner of the room 4 people were taking their oath ahead of us. When it was our turn I picked up a flag on the table, walked to the next available mark on the floor. There were 4 of us plus one interpreter. The USCIS agent welcomed us, said congratulations, had us repeat the oath. After that he pointed to voting registration packets to pick up, told us we needed to sign our certificates and said that unless we had questions we were free to go. So it was straight off to the exit. I’m seeing it as the students who are graduating this year. It doesn’t take away my « diploma », but there was no ceremony.
  5. Thanks, mine is at the USCIS office so I doubt there will be live streaming.
  6. Congratulations. Cheers to the beginning of a new journey as a citizen!
  7. Hi, I’m curious how you found out about the live streaming. Mine is in Charlotte on Friday and it would be neat if that was the case too. And congratulations on becoming a citizen!
  8. Great news! It’s so nice to see things moving again. Are guests allowed in FL? (Just curious)
  9. Yes I go the document on my USCIS today with a date of June 12th. 😁 No guests allowed unless you need a traducteur, or have a disability.
  10. After months of quiet, there might be some changes in Charlotte. Not holding my breath on it but... Now waiting on things to show up on My Uscis.
  11. I haven’t received one yet. That’s TBD. Someone on the December thread said they got it online 5 days after.
  12. May I ask you when you received your invitation to the oath ceremony? (In Charlotte too and just had my interview).
  13. I passed my interview!! I was in and out of the Charlotte office in less than 45 minutes. The agent was very matter of fact, made me swear, asked me the civics questions, asked me if I worked and where, went through all the yes no questions on the application, had me sign any changes and done. He did change my application from 3 to 5 years filling, mostly so he didn’t have to figure out extra papers it seems. The security agents were super sweet, asked how it went and congratulated me. If Covid-19 doesn’t get in the way, I was told to expect an invitation to the oath in 2-3 weeks.
