  • Certificate of Naturalization or
  • Certificate of Citizenship

  • We found a problem. Based on your answer, you cannot continue.  You must be a current U.S. citizen to file Form N-565. If you would like to apply for U.S. citizenship through naturalization, please use N-400, Application for Naturalization.

  • Although you may be eligible to file Form N-565, your situation is complex. Therefore, we recommend that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney instead of using our service.

  • Be advised: Use this reason only if the mistake on your certificate was due to a typographical/clerical error made by USCIS or DHS. If the incorrect certificate was due to your own mistake, go back and select "My biographic information needs to be updated."

  • We found a problem. Based on your answer, you cannot continue.  USCIS cannot make any changes to an incorrect date of birth on a Naturalization Certificate if you reported any incorrect date on your Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, and then later swore to the facts of your application. We recommend that you consult with an immigration attorney.

Indicate if your certificate is in your possession.
