    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that Form N-565, Application for Replacement of Naturalization/Citizenship Document, and Form N-336, Request for a Hearing on a Decision in Naturalization Proceedings (Under Section 336 of the INA), can be filed online.

    Applicants use Form N-565 to replace a naturalization certificate, certificate of citizenship, or a repatriation certificate. They may also use it to apply for a special certificate of naturalization as a U.S. citizen to be recognized by a foreign country. Applicants use Form N-336 to request a hearing before an immigration officer if we have denied their application for naturalization.

    “USCIS is making the process of applying for immigration benefits more efficient, secure and convenient,” said USCIS Director L. Francis Cissna. “We continue to add new forms that applicants can complete online.”

    These are the third and fourth forms that applicants can file online through their online account. We introduced the first, Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card, in March 2015. We introduced the second, Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, in August 2016, and began heavily promoting online filing for the form in December 2017. We are using innovation and technology to continually meet the needs of our applicants, employees and stakeholders.

    Regardless of whether a form is filed on paper or electronically, USCIS is committed to ensuring a secure immigration system and a streamlined experience for applicants.
