Certificate of Naturalization for proof of citizenship

I don't know how the newer Certificate of Naturalization looks like now but the one that I have has a note on it saying DO NOT PHOTOCOPY. In the guide for K-1 petitions however it says that a photocopy of a Naturalization Certificate could be submitted for proof of citizenship. Is it ok to copy that now?

Also I'd like to find out if you needed to have anything notarized like cover letters, etc as part of the I-129F package. Thanks.

A photocopy of naturalization certificate is fine now, the rules have changed. Don't send originals of such important documents.

No there's nothing that needs to be notarized for the I-129F.

Good luck!

My fiance did photocopy his Certificate, I'm sure they understand this is necessary at this point.

Good luck!

Nobody is allowed to make photocopies of a Certificate of Naturalization without authorization. That's why is reads DO NOT PHOTOCOPY.

You, however, are authorized to make a photocopy of your own Certificate for USCIS, as they want you to do just that. They also know that the Certificate is marked with DO NOT PHOTOCOPY, as they put it on there. If it would not show up, they'd know it's a fake.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Not true that was ages ago.
