Who Can Apply
You are not required to file for a Certificate of Citizenship in order to be considered a U.S. citizen who automatically acquires after birth. You can directly file for a U.S. passport.
If you do need a Certificate of Citizenship, you or your U.S. citizen parent may file for a Certificate of Citizenship.
After the Application for Certificate of Citizenship is filed, USCIS sends a receipt notice confirming that they received the Application for Naturalization.
If USCIS approves the Application for Certificate of Citizenship, USCIS will mail the Certificate of Citizenship by mail.
