USCIS releases revised N-400 form Application for Naturalization

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services released a revised N-400 Application for Naturalization form. Community members and service providers may continue to use the old N-400 form until May 5, 2014, when USCIS will discontinue accepting the old N-400 forms. On Monday, May 5, 2014, USCIS will no longer accept older versions of the form and will reject and return all previous versions submitted after May 5.
While the form is now revised, eligibility requirements have not changed. The new form includes the following:

  • Additional questions to accommodate with the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Act of 2004 and the Child Soldier Prevention Act of 2007;
  • Clearer and comprehensive instructions highlighting general eligibility requirements to help community members understand the naturalization process; and,
  • 2D barcode technology at the bottom of each page to improve USCIS’s data scan and management systems.
