USCIS Accepting Only Current Naturalization Applications
As of May 5, 2014, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is now only accepting current versions of the Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, dated 9/13/2013. USCIS will reject and return all naturalization applications using previous versions.
Among other things, the revised form has a barcode, which USCIS said will result in fewer rejected forms. USCIS said that it also clarified the instructions and made the form more "user-friendly."
USCIS issued the revised version of the N-400 on February 4, 2014. The agency allowed applicants to continue using previous versions of the N-400 for a 90-day transition period, which has expired.
REVISED FORM, but it can also be printed and completed by hand in black ink. The form must be signed and sent with the filing fee.
A USCIS video about the changes to the form is available on USCIS's YouTube channel.
