Default Oath Ceremony Letter

I went to the BCIS local office at 3:30 am and got a chance to talk to
an officer at 8:30 am. I found out that I'am schedule for oath, But I
never received the oath letter. I don't know what to do if I don't
receive the letter by the day of the oath ceremony.

Any idea ?

Thanks

What did the BCIS officer tell you? Didn't you tell him that you never got
the letter?

My Oath experience:
I got my letter about a month before the date and about a month after
the interview. Downtown Los Angeles around lunch time, could have been
worse. They had 3 events that Friday, swearing in 3,500 at a time.You
have to figure with their experience the lines move quickly, just like
Disneyland. Ushers are there to prompt you to hold up your letter so
it's visible (above the head works). That's your ticket in the door.
It has to be verified and then they stamp it. As you are being herded
to the next hurdle you again have to hold it high to gain access to a
seat. After the speeches and the oath as you exit you look at the
mazes of desks with numbers above them.You look for the one that has
the last 3 digits of your 'A' number. Here you pick up your
Naturalization certificate.
If you never got the letter you wouldn't know when to show up?
When you wait in line for 5 hours the last thing you want to do is
walk away with unanswered questions.

I did tell the officer. He couldn't do anything other that printing
the scren of his PC with my oath date. He didn't know if that's enough
or not.

Thanks

I did tell the officer. The only thing he could do at that time was to
print a copy of his PC screen with my oath date. I did ask if that
was enough in case I don't receive the letter, he didn't know. So
should I go back and ask the supervisor?
I call the #800 number , they did not know also what to do.

Thanks

I would suggest to go back to your BCIS local district, and ask to talk to their supervisor for more details on how to act in case you don't receive your Oath Ceremony letter by the due date. The supervisor may have experienced this situation with other applicants.

Also, you need to go to your Oath Ceremony anyways, just have your green card, passport, and the printed copy from the officer, they probably have your name in their list, and they may have some other procedures for people who lost their letter in the mail.

Make sure you call again the officers in the 1-800, but not customer service, there is a difference there, b/c I had a same problem for my Naturalization interview, and I had to call the Texas office "local district is Miami" and a nice lady officer was able to send me another letter after she contacted in person my local district, and I received it within 24 hours.

Wish you good luck

Sorry to hear that. You would think that with technology where it is at, they should just be able to swip the Green Card and let you in at the oath ceremony instead of depending upon a piece of paper that could get lost in the mail.

By the was nfid3, when is your oath ceremony?? Also how long after interview are you getting sworn in??? THanks

Hi,
Here is the toll free number 1-800-375-5283, and I believe to talk to an officer, you need to choose a pending case.

In my case, I had the Service Center's phone number listed in the receipt I receiced from Texas Center, and that's the number I used the whole time. So, if you still have your first receipt u got from your Service Center, call them, and it takes few minutes and tries to reach an officer b/c of the busy signal.

I only have the Texas Service Center's phone number.

Wish u good luck

hey, [email protected],

By the way, I found out that the copy they provide you with from the BCIS office is good enough to show up with it to the oath ceremony. If you check it, it says: APPLICANT COPY, and also the A# and the 13 digits of the BCIS receipt. So, It's only a letter stating the full name, self-address, and the address of the location of the Oath. Also there are few questions in the back of it that we all need to answer the day of the oath ceremony.

The print out is the same as the original in case the original is lost
