Naturalization Interview

Full Video Transcript

Citizens of other countries who wish to become U.S. citizens, must go through the naturalization process. Part of the process includes an interview before U.S. immigration officials, which includes a test of sorts about U.S. history and government. You'll be provided with one written notice of the date and time of your interview, so make sure not to miss this important date. The interview will typically be held at the Citizenship and Immigration Services offices closest to your home. Also, the interview will most likely be conducted in English unless you request and qualify for an exemption. It's important to study and practice questions before the interview. If you fail the interview, you will have one more chance to pass it at a later date. If you fail twice, then you will likely be denied citizenship. If you have any concerns about your naturalization interview, then you should contact an immigration lawyer to discuss your legal options. It's important to contact an attorney as soon as possible so your application for citizenship is not denied.
