On Feb. 5, we published an updated edition of Form N-565, Application for Replacement Naturalization/Citizenship Document. The new edition is dated 05/07/15.
Starting, we will only accept the 05/07/15 edition. Previous editions will no longer be accepted.Customers may continue to use the 02/28/13 edition or previous editions until .
We have also added a new attestation section to Form N-565. This language appears in the section of the form entitled, “Applicant’s/Petitioner’s Statement, Contact Information, Acknowledgement of Appointment at USCIS Application Support Center, Certification, and Signature.” Applicants will also see similar language when they come to their biometric appointments.
We are incorporating this language in the biometric appointment notices to remind applicants that they certified under penalty of perjury at the time of filing that the content of their form was complete, true and correct. By appearing at an Application Support Center, applicants are re-affirming that the content of their form was complete, true and correct at the time of filing.
The procedure and process to capture biometrics will not change. We will continue to use biometric machines to capture digital fingerprints, a digital photograph and a digital image of the applicant’s signature.
