New Security Features for Naturalization Certificates


Just a few weeks ago, immigration officials at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (the “USCIS”) started issuing new and enhanced naturalization certificates.

The certificates, used to obtain passports and other legal documents, are used to evidence a person’s U.S. naturalization (the choice by a foreigner to become a U.S. citizen).

Like the new green cards (permanent residence cards for foreigners in the U.S.) which were unveiled earlier this year, the enhanced naturalization certificates have improved security features to prevent forgery and assist in identification and tracking of individuals by law enforcement.
