Citizenship Certificate Form N-565
What is Form N-565?
Form N-565 is the application to replace a Citizenship Document. U.S. citizens who have lost their Certificate of Citizenship or Certificate of Naturalization can use Form N-565 to get a replacement document. Form N-565 can also be used to replace a Declaration of Intention or Repatriation Certificate.
What documents can Form N-565 be used to replace?
Form N-565 can be used to replace documents that show proof of U.S. citizenship, including:
- Certificate of Citizenship
- Certificate of Naturalization
- Repatriation Certificate
It can also be used to replace a Declaration of Intent, a document that states you have the intention of becoming a U.S. citizen through naturalization, required by some states if you are doing business within that state.
What is the difference between a Certificate of Naturalization and a Certificate of Citizenship?
A Certificate of Naturalization is proof of U.S. citizenship for people who have gotten citizenship through the naturalization process. During the Citizenship Ceremony, naturalized citizens receive a Certificate of Naturalization as proof of their U.S. citizenship. If you have lost your Certificate of Naturalization, you can use Form N-565 to replace it.
A Certificate of Citizenship is proof of U.S. citizenship for people who are already U.S. citizens, either by birth or through “automatic citizenship”. They can request a Certificate of Citizenship to prove their U.S. citizenship using Form N-600.
Form N-600 or Form N-565 are not applications for naturalization. People who are U.S. permanent residents (green card holders) can apply for U.S. citizenship with Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.
