I-751 and N-400 Combined Interviews with Real Questions!

Great news! We just passed our combined interviews for Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence and the N-400 Citizenship Application. We want to share our experience with you while our memories are still fresh! So let's get to it:

I received my interview notices back in June 2022. The two interviews were scheduled for the same day so I know they are going to be combined or be back to back. We applied for both all by ourselves.

I-751 and N-400 Combined Interviews

My interviews were scheduled for 2:30pm and on the notice, it mentioned that we won't be able to check in until 15 minutes before our interview time, therefore, we planned to get there around 2:15pm. 

Once we entered the door, we showed our IDs (driver's license) and went through the X-ray security. After that we checked in at the desk where my fingerprints and photo were taken. We then waited in the waiting room for another 10 minutes or so before the immigration officer came out to get us. 

We are very lucky to have a super nice officer to conduct the interviews!

I-751 Interview Questions

My husband was asked to come in with me. He asked just a few questions to confirm our date of birth, home address, etc. All basic background information. After that he asked us to go back to the waiting room for 5 minutes until his computer updates and removes the condition on my Green Card. 

N-400 Interview Questions

A few minutes later, the officer came out again and he asked me to go in alone. 

First he conducted the reading test: Abraham Lincoln was a president

Then the writing test. The officer said the sentence a couple times and asked me to write down on a tablet with a pen. My test question was: Lincoln was the president during the civil war

Now we moved on to our civic questions. Once I answered 6 questions correctly he stopped.

  1. Name one war fought by the United States in the 1900s.
  2. What group of people was taken to America and sold as slaves? 
  3. Who lived in America before the Europeans arrived? 
  4. We elect a U.S. Senator for how many years?  
  5. Name two national U.S. holidays.
  6. Why does the flag have 13 stripes?  

In a separate post, I will talk in more details about how to prepare well for your N-400 interview. Stay tuned!

After I passed the reading, writing, and civic tests, he moved on to my application details. He first confirmed a few questions on my application. This part is also just about my background information. Some questions such as:

  • What's your full name?
  • What are your children's names?
  • What's your email and phone number?
  • What's your home address/mailing address?
  • Do you want to change your legal name?
  • The YES/NO questions
  • Other chatting....not very important I believe
In the end, the officer showed me a screen of all my information and asked me to go through and make sure they are all correct. I then was asked to sign.

He then showed me the oath allegiance and asked me to sign again. 

Congelation's! That's the end of the interview. I was given a letter notice which includes my oath ceremony date and time.  

I hope this post helps! I will do another update for the oath ceremony, so come back to learn more. See you!
