U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is updating policy guidance in the USCIS Policy Manual on USCIS administrative naturalization ceremonies, to include guidance regarding participation from other U.S. government and non-governmental entities.


This new guidance on USCIS administrative naturalization ceremonies updates Part J of Volume 12 of the Policy Manual. Specifically, this guidance updates the chapter previously entitled “Model Plan for Administrative Naturalization Ceremonies.” The guidance contained in the USCIS Policy Manual is controlling and supersedes any prior guidance."
