  2. If you ask for tech support itโ€™ll connect you to a person, then you can ask for tier two and a tier 2 agent will call you back within a a few hours or days, theyโ€™ll be able to help you.
  3. Yes my friend, almost there, my i751 was transferred to โ€œanother jurisdictionโ€ on 10/12-13 and on 10/29 my interview was scheduled for December 12 so youโ€™ll be there soon!! Remember to always check the documents online cause the notices will be there first ๐ŸŽ‰
  4. Ok guys this is it! I am officially a US citizen ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ oath ceremony took place at the Federal Plaza room 310 at 1 on 1/11, my husband accompanied me but was not allowed into the room, I first made a line where I provided my appointment letter signed and dated, along with my old green card and work permit, they gave me the certificate, checked that everything was correct and then was asked to go into room 300 cause 310 was full, they gave us two envelopes, one with a letter from President Biden congratulating us and the other a USCIS package with instructions on life as a citizen, passport application, national anthem, pledge of allegiance and oath of allegiance and a tiny US flag, after that an officer gave a speech from the other room which we watched on a big screen, we all said the oath in unison, they congratulated us, we cheered and clapped and off we went, they asked us if we wanted to take pictures next to a US flag to go to the second floor and we all did, I waved both of my flags ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ด and Iโ€™m so damn happy and proud to finally being an American, itโ€™s been my dream for as long as I can remember and it finally happened, if anyone would know about my immigration story, they would understand how important this achievement was for me and for all of us immigrants that came to this country full of hopes and dreams that are unfolding for us all. The entire process took about maybe 1/2 hr so it was quick, I took longer dolling up lol I looked like a congresswoman ๐Ÿ˜to all of you still waiting I wish nothing but speed and good luck with your new American lives ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ps: I am learning the lyrics to the national anthem from that uscis pamphlet and will upload it to tiktok, will sing it better than fergie ๐Ÿ˜ฌ if you find it you find it ๐Ÿคญ Good luck amigos ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿ€ attached my very last USCIS update ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

  6. Hey guys, I noticed I didnโ€™t update this thread however, my i751 was automatically approved after my N400 interview on 12/12, no additional interview needed, my oath ceremony is in a few days which means: I HAVE FINALLY GRADUATED FROM USCIS ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ, to anyone on this thread still waiting, best of luck ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€
  7. So happy to see everyone will start the new year closing this chapter in our lives ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ
  8. Congratulations ๐ŸŽ‰ As someone who waited 16 months to get my i751 approved but only cause I applied for citizenship, weโ€™re high key glad that is over for you but low key high key jelly ๐Ÿ˜ not having to travel internationally with an array of paperwork is amazing, id assume, I wouldnโ€™t know ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜congratulations ๐ŸŽ‰
  9. Hey @LizM I know we filed the aos together and here we are at citizenship lol question: you said they approved your i751 at your n400 interview, did you get the 10 yr gc sent? Anybody else? No one on my threads has and I canโ€™t find a thread, Iโ€™m asking because I know we have to give up the GCs and work permits at the oath ceremony but am wondering if theyโ€™ll send a gc to have to give it back in a few weeks?! Thanks you in advance for your responses ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ ps: if your status online says: we mailed you the oath notice, if you go under documents itโ€™ll be there ๐Ÿ˜‰
  10. Did you guys file at 2.9 years or at 3? Idk if it made any difference for me but I waited for the 3 year mark even though I did see ppl who had aos with me who filed at 2.9 and already had their interview and are waiting to be scheduled for oath, so this is totally random, Iโ€™m in NY though ๐Ÿซ 
  11. No, he asked about the international trips Iโ€™ve taken in the last 5 years which were only two and for less than 15 days in total ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ
  12. Thanks and Iโ€™m sorry youโ€™re still waiting for your interview, I promise itโ€™ll come soon โœจ my good vibes are out for you and theyโ€™re pretty powerful so receive with faith ๐ŸŒš
  13. You guys!! So I had my n400 interview yesterday, the appointment was at 10.55 am and we got there at 10.12am and by the time we were allowed in and through security it was about 10.30 ish, they called me about 5-10 ish minutes after 10:55, it was pretty light very few people, after the officer sworn me in he asked me to produce my dl, passport, social and gc, verified my info and then we did the civics test, passed, we did the reading and writing and he told me I passed, we did did the yes and no then he asked for the taxes, trips and marriage certificate just because my passport still has maiden name and said that he sees that all the time and I agreed my country makes it really hard to change your name, he actually looked through my i751 packet that was sitting on his desk (all my colored folders were in a huge folder lol), I told him my husband was out there waiting in case we needed another interview for the i751 and he said that he was approving my n400 but he didnโ€™t process i751 so he was going to fwd to his coworker to look at it and approve it but he did want to meet my husband when we were done, he verified the info that is going to appear on my certificate, explained the oath ceremony and said that I was going to be notified as to when the oath ceremony was going to be and where, he walked me out and I called my husband over, coincidentally they grew up in the same neighborhood ๐Ÿคฃ and they had a little chat, shook hands we thanked him for his time and left. About 1/2 hr after we left i751, later that day the n400 went from โ€˜interview scheduledโ€™ to โ€˜we recommend for approvalโ€™ to โ€˜we placed you in line for oathโ€™ and this morning it was finally scheduled, I checked online and is in a couple weeks ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ this road is finally closed and Iโ€™m hysterically happy ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ I will come back to update yโ€™all on how everything goes after citizenship and document updates like ssn, dl and finally passport ๐Ÿค— I wish you all the best of luck and a speedy process and next 4th of July we can all celebrate this great nation like true Americans ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ
  14. That would definitely be some fun small talk with the IO ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ theyโ€™d probably ask you when is independence day if theyโ€™re fun enough ๐Ÿ˜
  15. Of course friend! Let us know if something happens after submitting a cover letter asking for a combo interview ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ hopefully that works and you guys can be done with this soon!!
