I-129F Question 10 Query

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I attempted a search of previous posts but couldn't find anything applicable.

Question 10 of the I-129F form asks "My citezenship was aquired through (check one)?" with the following possible answers:

- Birth in the U.S.

- Naturalization

...

There is a field for "Give number of certificate, date and place it was issued", I am unsure as to whether this applies to both Birth in the U.S. (presumably it refers to your birth certificate in this case), naturalization or both. I read a USENET posting indicating that it only applied to naturalization, can anybody confirm that this is the case?

I thought it refered to whichever certificate is applicable for you and I wrote my birth certificate number in there. Oh well :mellow: no harm done. If you don't want to leave it blank, you could probably write in your B/C # just in case.

Can I ask a question on this same subject? I was naturalized through my parents when I was young but only have my American passport as evidence. I can probably try to locate my parent's citizenship papers but it won't be an easy task since they are both deceased. Will they accept my American passport number as evidence? Please advise

Hmmm... maybe there's a way immigration could locate a send you a copy of your naturalization certificate. Call and ask them and if they can't, you can ask what other types of evidence they accept :)

The "Certificate of Citizenship" number is not referring to the naturalization certificate its referring to another way people can become citizens: inheriting citizenship automatically from thier parents. If one of your parents becomes a naturalized US citizen while you are under 18 you automatically become a citizen, don't go through the naturalization process, and don't recieve a naturalized citizen certificate. In these cases, you can apply directly for a US passport and/or a "certificate of citizenship".

Passport counts as proof of citizenship as long as you send them a copy of every page in your passport. It still has to be valid, unexpired, and issued for at least 5 years.

I already have a US passport so I'm hoping that would suffice. I know my older sister has the certificate you're referring to but I hear it's a long process to try and obtain one. I just never bothered. Thanks for your reply.

There was a post by a member some time ago where he got an RFE requesting further documentation under similar or same circumstances, just cant remember exactly. If you can locate your parents citizenship papers and submit a photo copy of them along with photo copy of your passport with your petition that could be a good idea. It sure cant hurt.

The wording and placement is confusing on the I-129F but it is referring to a naturalization certificate number. It is much clearer on the I-130. Refer to the I-129F example form at the top of the page.

As a naturalized US citizen, I put my naturalization certificate no, date and issuance date. I guess, there won't be any harm, if a born US citizen write similar information.


I-130 Timeline with USCIS:

It took 92 days for I-130 to get approved from the filing date

NVC Process of I-130:

It took 78 days to complete the NVC process

Interview Process at The U.S. Embassy

Interview took 223 days from the I-130 filing date. Immigrant Visa was issued right after the interview
