  • N-652 . A decision cannot yet be made about your application

    I attended an interview for Naturalization in mid August. After the interview during which went well, I was told that I had passed but further investigations needed to be done. I have called all numbers but no one seems to have any answers. How long will it take until they get back to me?

      There's no way of knowing when you will hear. Chances are it's held up for background and IBIS checking.

      Here's an idea of what types of background checks are done for naturalisation...

      IBIS: this check has validity of 35 days - this check is against IBIS (maintained by USCPC - Customs and Border Patrol) using applicant's full name and date of birth (without place or country of birth). This check is done by USCIS internally through a connection to IBIS. A no hit is termed "IBIS OK" in USCIS' jargon. An "IBIS DNR" (Does Not Relate) is when a match exists but does not relate to the applicant, which is a no hit as well. IBIS is exempt from
      FOIA requests, that is, a person cannot use FOIA to find out if his/her name is in IBIS.


      FBI Fingerprint (FD258) Identififcation against NCIC database - this has a vaildity
      of 18 months, per a MOU between FBI and USCIS. Any applicant can call FBI NCIC (Clarksburg, WV) to find out if his/her fingerprint result has been sent back to USCIS. Work through various voice prompts to talk to a live representative. The results of this
      check are normally returned within 24 hours for person with no criminal records or outstanding warrants. No hit is termed "NO IDENT" in FBI
      jargon. An FOIA request (with FD258/fingerprints) would reveal if a record exists or not.

      FBI Name Check against Central Records System (CRS) - this check basically searches to see if the applicant has ever been a subject/target of
      any FBI investigation. There is no documented validity period for this check. This check can take anywhere from 1 day to 1 year. No hit is termed "NO RECORD" in FBI jargon. A FOIA request would reveal if a record exists or not. FBI may not disclose full details but will acknowledge if a record exists. Also, presence of a record does not mean that it is something
      negative.

        I have noticed that uscis is slow in making their decision on any immigration matters.
        If uscis has not received any clearance then why they have called you for interview. It might take one month to few years, God knows how they works.
        General Public Suffer's.

        I read in some cases they are unable to make the decision since 2000.
