JCS Immigration and Visa, Los Angeles Immigration lawyers, have received news that USCIS has updated Form N-400, Application for Naturalization. The form update is part of USCIS’ ongoing forms improvement initiative to help make the forms easier to use and collect data more efficiently.
The revised Form N-400 contains:
- Clearer and more comprehensive instructions which highlight general eligibility requirements and specific instructions on how to complete the application;
- 2D barcode technology used to each page on the revised Form N-400, which will enhance USCIS’ ability to quickly and accurately process the application; and
- New questions based on legal requirements related to national security and good moral character.
It is important to note that the naturalization eligibility requirements have not changed and the filing fee remains the same, where applicable. USCIS will continue to accept previous versions of Form N-400 for a period of 90 days, until May 5, 2014. For more information visit USCIS.gov/citizenship.
