Naturalization Certificate

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of completing the packet for the IR1/CR1 process. One of the requirements is to provide a copy of my naturalization certificate. Unfortunately it says on the certificate that it is punishable by law to make a copy of this certificate.

Any ideas on what to do about this??

You can make a copy of the certificate, no problem. The warning has not applied for over a decade now.

Thanks for the response. Do you have a link where it says that officially? My parents are in possession of the certificate and refuse to make a copy of it since it says that. Have to convince them - its fine.

Thanks!

It is printed on the very certificate:

"It is punishable by US Law to copy, print or photograph this certificate, without lawful authority." You are being asked by the USCIS to make a copy of the document and that counts as lawful authority.

If they do not wish to make the copy themselves, send in a copy of your US passport in its stead.

Good luck!
