Good Morning,

 

I need to get at least 2 certified copies of my naturalization certificate after my ceremony tomorrow for passport application and for my employer. The Tampa USCIS office is not currently accepting walk-ins or scheduling appointments, and I don't want to send the original off anywhere incase it gets lost.

 

Please can anyone advise how I go about obtaining one?

 

Thank-you :)

You must use your original naturalization for passport application.

You can get a notary public to certify the copies.

Notaries only certify signatures, not documents.......document certification is done at the originating source.

At least in CA I was able to get copies of documents certified by a notary public. This might not be the case for your state.

No one, other than the issuing authority, can certify the authenticity of a document.

That's why I'm saying that I got the copies certified, not the original document. The notary public certifies that the copy is the exact copy of whichever document.

Agree.....the notary can certify a "true copy" of the original they have....may or may not be an authentic document.

And that's what I think the OP needs. His naturalization certificate is already certified, he just needs to make a copy and certify that copy.

They accept a photocopy and the original for the passport. It's not that difficult to find (Google is your friend!):

And for your employer, why can't they see the original and take a copy, thereby "certifying" it themselves? 

My employer took a photocopy of my green card for work authorization, and they photocopied the I-551 stamps in my passport for two years after that. I suspect they will be happy with a photocopy of my naturalization certificate.  I do know that they are audited annually to ensure that all immigrants employed there are legally allowed to work.  It will be nice not to have to make that HR appointment this year, although I really like our HR lady :) !
