Quick Overview

What is a Certificate of Citizenship?
The Certificate of Citizenship (Form N-560 or N-561) is a document issued by the US 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 U.S. Certificate of Citizenship.

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

Product Description

Naturalized Citizens Should Apply for a Certificate of Naturalization instead of a Certificate of Citizenship
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.
