  1. Received online notification of interview date today. Interview has been scheduled at the Newark office on February 19, 2020.
  2. Does anyone have any experience with passport application at the Newark office on the day of interview/oath ceremony?
  3. Just received email this morning that interview has been scheduled; waiting for notification of date. Happy New Year! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽ‰
  4. Newark filer as well but I have received nothing indicating a transfer. Estimated time still says February 2020.
  5. Congratulations! I'm a month behind you so your good news is exciting for the May Newark filers as well. Good luck. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘
  6. Just checked my account status this morning; wait time in Newark was increased by a month from January 2020 to February 2020. ๐Ÿค”
  7. For a second I thought I had missed something. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ It was the person just below me on the list (mep) that had their interview July 26. I'm still in line for an estimated January 2020 date. Good luck to everyone that has received dates lately. ๐Ÿ‘
  8. Just checked my account today and my estimated time at Newark office decreased by a month to 6 months (down from 7 months after biometrics). ๐Ÿ‘
  9. Thanks for putting this together. It's always nice to have company on any USCIS journey.
  10. Biometrics completed today in Elizabeth, NJ. Estimated completion time decreased by a month to January 2020 from February 2020. For those doing biometrics in Elizabeth, NJ. Arrived for a 2:00 pm. appointment at 1:40 p.m. Parking is limited in the area; was lucky and found a spot on the street across from the building. $.0.25 / 10 minutes up to a maximum of 2 hours. Purses and bags are allowed but cell phones have to be off. This applies to both applicants and any accompanying family members. The staff was quite pleasant but the security guard had to warn a few people about not using their phones. He said that even if a family member was caught using their phone both they and the applicant would be removed. Filled in a worksheet that asked for current name, previous names, country of birth, country of citizenship, height, weight, eye colour, sex and race. Waited about 10 minutes in line for the receptionist who stamped my biometric letter, checked my hands (I'm assuming to make sure there were no cuts or scars that would impede fingerprinting), gave me a number, a civics study booklet and directed me to sit in the applicant waiting area. There were people ahead of me that were there early for a 3 p.m. appointment and they were sent to another area and given higher numbers; essentially sent to the back of the line. The receptionist's time stamp was 1:53 p.m. I was given number 890 and they were processing number 808 when I sat down in the waiting area. So over 80 people ahead of me. I waited until just after 3:00 p.m. for my number to be called. They reviewed my information confirming place and date of birth, took my picture, fingerprinted my right 4 fingers, had me sign an electronic pad, signed my biometrics notice and I was done in less than 5 minutes. Now the wait begins.
  11. Hard copy of biometrics appointment received today; one week and one day after filing online.
  12. NOA1 hard copy received in the mail today; one week after filing online. Estimated completion time February 2020 (9months).
  13. Here we go. Good luck everyone. ๐Ÿ™‚ Filed online.
