I wonder what the proper dress code is, if any, for the US citizenship oath ceremony.
USCIS instructs all applicants to dress in attire that “respects the dignity” of the Oath of Allegiance ceremony. The agency specifically prohibits wearing jeans, shorts, and flip flops.
I've read this claim on quite a few other websites that weren't US governmental websites. However I can't find the source of that claim, and looking at some US citizenship oath ceremony videos I do see people in jeans, e.g. https://youtu.be/HRNY9Mt7KDg?t=75:
I would like to know before the interview, as the US citizenship oath ceremony may happen the same day as the interview. Maybe it depends on the USCIS field office? or the no-jeans/shorts/flip flops instructions are incorrect or out-of-date?
The N-445, Notice of Naturalization Oath Ceremony only states:
USCIS asks that you dress in proper attire to respect the dignity of this event.
But doesn't explicit allow or ban specific cloth types. As a result, I wonder what the previous quote "The agency specifically prohibits wearing jeans, shorts, and flip flops." is referring to.
