Q: Good day, My wife and I are applying for naturalization.
We have received a notice today that our N400 naturalization interview is scheduled during a long planned vacation overseas. Is it safe to reschedule the interview or should I just cancel the vacation and try to reduce the non-refundable costs? Thank you!
A: You must inform the USCIS in writing about the important family or personal reason for why attending their assigned date is impossible for you. A simple family vacation might not be enough grounds to receive a rescheduled date. Speak to a lawyer, is my suggestion.
Dear N-400 applicants,
First, let me congratulate you for your interest in becoming U.S. citizens.
Secondly, how scheduling and rescheduling issues have increased recently, my advice, not only as an attorney, as this question is not a legal one, but as a person, is to plan to attend the interview. Once you are U.S. citizens you can travel as you please!
