How Long Does it Take to Become a U.S. Citizen?
Processing times may be different depending on your situation, however, on average, it takes about 12 to 18 months to become a U.S. citizen through the naturalization process. How well you have prepared your N-400 and where you live may affect the length of time it takes to process it.
Things that may affect your processing time:
- Backlog of cases at your USCIS office
- How you prepared your N-400, Application for Naturalization. Filling it out completely and providing the correct supporting documents can help you avoid mistakes that will cause delays.
Other steps to consider:
- Biometric Appointment: scheduled 2 to 3 months after Form N-400 is filed
- Citizenship Interview and Test: about 7 to 11 months after filing
- Oath Ceremony: taken after passing the interview and test -- about 8 to 12 months after filing
