New N 400 Naturalization Application – now 21 pages

Today, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services published a revised Form N-400, Application for Naturalization. This revision is part of USCIS’s ongoing forms improvement initiative.

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 for each page on the revised Form N-400, which will enhance our ability to quickly and accurately process the application; and
  • New questions based on legal requirements related to national security and good moral character.

Although USCIS revised the Form N-400, 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. After May 5, USCIS will only accept the revised version of the Form N-400.

For resources and information on the revised Form N-400, please visit www.uscis.gov/n-400.

To support naturalization preparation, USCIS provides a variety of educational resources on U.S. citizenship and the naturalization process. Please visit www.uscis.gov/citizenship for more information.
