N-600 Application for Certificate of Citizenship

About the service

The N-600 Application for Certificate of Citizenship is a form used by individuals who acquired or derived U.S. citizenship through their parents but were not automatically issued a Certificate of Citizenship. This application is filed to obtain a Certificate of Citizenship as proof of their U.S. citizenship status. Unlike the N-400 Application for Naturalization, which is for lawful permanent residents seeking to become citizens through naturalization, the N-600 is for individuals who have already acquired citizenship at birth or through their parents.
