USCIS Announces Every Naturalization Applicant Must provide Biometrics Regardless of Age

On July 26, 2017, USCIS updated the USCIS Policy Manual to specify that every naturalization (citizenship) applicant must provide biometrics (e.g. fingerprints) regardless of age, unless the applicant qualifies for a fingerprint waiver due to certain medical conditions or disabilities. Prior to this announcement, biometrics were not required for naturalization applicants over the age of 75.
