What city are you in? That matters for processing times. My office filed an N-400 (based on the three year rule) in late April 2021. Interview scheduled late June 2021. Los Angeles Field Office. Fastest N-400 I’ve ever seen.

Local field office is Charlotte NC. Should have also mentioned that we had biometric reuse notice same day as filing. I’ve seen a lot of reports of that kind of speed on VisaJourney, and trying to work out if we stand a chance of traveling back to Europe for Christmas, given how long passports are taking to process. 😅 Thank you in advance for your help!

Thanks- I haven’t booked anything yet for that exact reason. Just trying to play that impossible guessing game, same as everyone else :)
