USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas announced the launch of a redesigned Certificate of Naturalization (Form N-550) with new security features that will reduce fraudâpart of USCISâ ongoing efforts to enhance the integrity of the immigration system. USCIS anticipates that over 600,000 new citizens will receive the enhanced certificate over the next year.
The redesigned certificate features the naturalization candidateâs digitized photo and signature embedded into the document. The background also features a color-shifting ink pattern that is difficult to reproduce. USCIS is now using a more secure printing process that renders the certificate more tamper-proof.
