How long will I wait between my citizenship test and the ceremony?

In most cases, the ceremony takes place 3 to 4 months after you pass the test.

  • The timeframe may vary by application.
  • If your application is non-routine
    • you may have to attend a hearing with a citizenship officer or judge, even if you pass the test
    • it may take longer than 3 to 4 months before you can go to the ceremony
  • Wait for us to invite you to the ceremony.

You can also check your application status.
