Naturalization - Frequently Asked Questions


How can I pay my application fee for Naturalization?

You must pay your application fee with a check or money order drawn on a U.S. bank in U.S. dollars payable to the ‘USCIS’.

  • Residents of Guam should make the fee payable to ‘Treasurer, Guam’
  • Residents of the Virgin Islands should make the fee payable to ‘Commissioner of Finance of the Virgin Islands’

Note: You must send your fee with your application. Remember that your application fee is not refundable even if you withdraw your application or USCIS denies your case.


If I have been convicted of a crime but my record has been expunged, do I need to indicate that on my Naturalization application or tell an Immigration officer?

Yes, you should always be honest with Immigration regarding all:

  • Arrests (including those by police, Immigration officers, and other Federal agents)
  • Convictions (even if they have been expunged)
  • Crimes you have committed for which you were not arrested or convicted

Note: Even if you have committed a minor crime, Immigration may deny your application if you do not tell the Immigration officer about the incident. It is extremely important that you tell Immigration about any arrest even if someone else has advised you that you are not required to do so.
