USCIS Redesigns Replacement Citizenship and Naturalization Certificates

admin

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began issuing redesigned certificates for citizenship and naturalization for individuals who request replacement certificates (Form N-561, Replacement Certificate of Citizenship, and Form N-570, Replacement Certificate of Naturalization).

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began issuing redesigned certificates for citizenship and naturalization for individuals who request replacement certificates (Form N-561, Replacement Certificate of Citizenship, and Form N-570, Replacement Certificate of Naturalization).

The replacement certificates incorporate state-of-the-art technology to help deter counterfeiting, prevent tampering, and facilitate quick and accurate authentication. Additionally, USCIS employs a new and more secure printing process for the certificates to further prevent tampering.

These improvements are part of USCIS’s ongoing efforts to produce secure documents and enhance the integrity of the immigration system. Since 2010, USCIS has redesigned the Certificate of Naturalization (Form N-550), Certificate of Citizenship (Form N-560) and Employment Authorization Document (Form I-765) with enhanced security features. USCIS will continue to make enhancements as technology improves.

Although the look and feel of the documents is new, the process of applying for and receiving them will not change. Previously issued certificates will remain valid.
