United States Citizenship Certificate

Select your Language

   

The Certificate of US Citizenship (form N-560 or N-561) is a document issued by the United States government as proof of U.S. citizenship. An individual who obtained U.S. citizenship either by action of law while residing in the United States or by having been born outside the United States to U.S. citizen parents has the right to apply for a Certificate of U.S. Citizenship. For example:

■ Your parent are U.S. citizens, but you were born abroad.
■ At least one of your parents became naturalized when you were under 18 years of age and met the special conditions of the law.

The Certificate of United States Citizenship Guide was developed to help United States citizens complete and file a request for a copy of their certificate of United States Citizenship. You should only apply for a replacement certificate if your certificate of citizenship is lost, mutilated or destroyed. If your name has changed since the last certificate was issued, it is recommended to apply for a new certificate with the new name.

Naturalized Citizens: If you are a naturalized United States citizen, you should request a copy of your Certificate of United States Naturalization. The process of applying for a certificate of citizenship and certificate of naturalization is similar; however, the two documents are not the same. Both documents entitle the holder to full benefits of United States citizenship, including applying for a United States Passport. However, the application requirements are different. Please refer to the Certificate of United States Naturalization application guide for more information.
