USCIS announced that due to the recent electronic processing of the Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, there is no need for applicants to submit 2 passport-style photographs with their applications. Instead, applicant’s photographs will be taken when they appear at the Application Support Center (ASC) for their biometric appointments. Moreover, fingerprints, photographs and signatures of all applicants, regardless of age, will now be collected at a local ASC at the time of their scheduled biometric appointment. Lastly, USCIS will no longer waive the fingerprint requirement for applicants 75 years of age or older.
