Assume the following simple case: single (no divorce), no kids, employed and living in the US for >5 years, filed taxes each year, no citations/arrests/warrants, >5 years with green card obtained via EB-2 NIW (i.e., not via family or birth location), physical presence and continuous residence tests passed with no issues (no trips outside the US longer than 180 days, no back-to-back long trips and >2.5 years spent in the US over the past 5 years), answered no to all moral character questions in the N-400 (except for the oath questions, e.g. yes I accept to take the oath), no name change, all taxes paid on time, no need for selective service registration.
What documents does one need for one's naturalization interview to minimize the time it takes to obtain the US passport? I'd also would like to bring any documents needed for the oath ceremony and US passport applications, as they might happen in the same way as the naturalization interview.
I couldn't find any exhaustive list yet despite reading over a dozen of lists, so here's below what the list I've compiled, but I'd like to know whether I should add any other the documents to it:
- The interview appointment letter.
- Green card.
- Driver's license, or some other state-issued identification document.
- Passports and travel documents (both valid and expired passports), as well as any travel documents issued by the USCIS.
- Tax transcripts for the past 5 years (not required but strongly recommended).
- 2 passport photos (2x2 inches in size), as they may be used on the naturalization certificate and/or DS-11 Form.
- a completed but not signed DS-11 Form.
- a black pen (e.g., to complete forms such as signing the DS-11).
- a cheque book, to pay for form submissions (e.g., Form DS-11).
What else shall I bring, if any?
