Stapled naturalization certificate when applyinf for passport

Hi.,

I just applied for a US passport with my naturalization certificate and the person handling the application stapled it. (It was at a local library). She also showed us the guidelines saying she was supposed to staple everything together.

Is that Ok? I know USCIS are particular and about doing things wit the certificate, but I don't remember if stapling is Ok or not.

So my question was whether the actual stapling is Ok or if this by itself is considered damaging to the certificate.

I don't really understand what is the purpose of your question so I can give you a good satisfying answer but I'll try.

The certificate is not damaged by stapling as long as it does not take out the information on it. If the staple makes a big hole ( i would say bigger than a nickel) where some info like certificate number, name or other personal information is missing than I would say yes you need a replacement.

Thank you, you answered my question exactly!
