USCIS Adds N-400 (Naturalization) Form To Direct Mail Program

U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services (USCIS) announced publication of a Federal Register Notice that expands the Direct Mail program to include Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.  The notice advises the public to file non-military N-400 applications with the appropriate Lockbox and provides a 30-day transition period whereby the Service Centers will forward any N-400 applications received at their facilities to the appropriate Lockbox.  Applicants should continue to file Military N-400 cases at the Nebraska Service Center (NSC). 

Beginning on October 14, 2008, applicants must submit Form N-400 and related supplements to one of two new USCIS Lockbox facilities for initial processing, using the following addresses:
