The USCIS has announced that it is updating the policy regarding biometrics (fingerprints) requirement for naturalization applicants. Previously, the requirement for fingerprints was waived for naturalization applicants age 75 and older. USCIS has announced that the fingerprint requirement will no longer be waived for these applicants. Naturalization applicants with disabilities who are unable to provide fingerprints, or are unable to provide legible fingerprints, are still eligible for waivers of the biometric requirements. Moreover, in the guidance, the USCIS affirms its policy to provide accommodation to meet the needs of an applicant who is unable to attend an appointment for biometrics because the applicant is disabled, homebound or hospitalized.
