What happens when your citizenship application is denied?

If your application was denied, you have two options:

  • request a hearing with an immigration officer; or
  • reapply

If you were denied because you failed the English or civics test, you may reapply for naturalization as soon as you want.

If your citizenship application was denied, you should speak with an attorney to help you figure out your best option.
