The Naturalization Ceremony

In the Southern District of Iowa, naturalization ceremonies are held in the Des Moines and Davenport Divisions. Naturalization ceremonies are open to the public and are held at the Courthouse approximately once per month in Des Moines, and approximately four times per year in Davenport. On the day of the ceremony, applicants are processed by USCIS Officers. Each applicant should bring the U.S. issued Permanent Resident Care (green card), U.S. issued Visa, and all other travel documents.
