What is a non-routine citizenship application?

We consider your application non-routine or complex if

  • you asked to change your personal information, like your
    • name
    • sex or gender identifier
    • date of birth
  • we need you to submit extra documents, like
    • fingerprints
    • residence documents
  • you missed a test, interview or hearing
  • we invited you to another interview or hearing after you attended your interview
  • you failed a test
  • during your interview, you didn’t meet the language requirements

It may take us longer than the normal processing time to review a non-routine application.
