If your Certificate of Naturalization is older than 20 years or you would like to Apostille a Certified True Copy (Form G-24) instead of the original, we recommend that you contact the USCIS Office and request to speak to the Field Office Director. If you have your original Certificate of Naturalization you can make an appointment by using the USCIS InfoPass Appointment Scheduler. Make sure you bring the following to your appointment:
Your original Certificate of Naturalization
A copy of your Certificate of Naturalization
A Form of Photo Identification (i.e. Driver's License or Passport)
The USCIS Field Officer will reveiw the documents and may certify the copy (Form G-24), as long as the USCIS Field Officer can confirm your identity and status as a naturalized citizen. When you require a Certificate of Naturalization to be Authenticated, make sure you use the term: "Certified True Copy." A Certified True Copy of a Certificate of Naturalization is a Form G-24.
In order for us to process your United States Passport, you must mail in the originalorcertified true copy (Form G-24) by USCIS to our office. Once we receive your documents, in order to minimize errors and processing time, we will verify that all documents received from notaries before submitting them to be Apostilled. We will contact you as soon as possible if any errors are encountered and we will instruct you on how they need to be corrected.
Obtaining an Apostille can be a complicated process and should notbe left to someone who does not understand all of the steps involved. Untrained persons that do not understand all of the requirements for legalization in each country are more likely to make errors, which will severely delay the Apostille process and cost you more money.
Once the English Certificate of Naturalization Form G-24 is properly received you can mail it to us to be Apostilled. We can also provide Certified Translation Services into the language required by the Country of Designation.
