Form N-600, Application for Certificate of citizenship, typically costs $600 to file. However, there are some cases in which you can pay less or even nothing at all!

U.S. citizen parents who apply for citizenship certificates for their adopted children need only pay $550.

Members and veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces don’t need to pay a fee at all to get a citizenship certificate. However, in order to show that you are entitled to this benefit, you will need to attach proof of your service.

People who find that they cannot pay the $600 fee for other reasons can file a fee waiver with their application.

You will need to submit documents proving why you can’t afford to pay the N-600 filing fee.

The government may or may not accept your request for a fee waiver. If they accept your request, you will get a notice saying so. If they do not accept your request, they will send your application package back with instructions to re-submit with the proper fee.
