The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published a news alert titled “USCIS Issuing Biometric Appointment Notices for Domestic N-565 and N-600 Applicants” on November 15, 2018 [PDF version].

On November 1, 2018, the USCIS began requesting that domestic Form N-565, Application for Replacement Naturalization/Citizenship Document applicants go to a USCIS Application Support Center appointment to submit biometric information.

The news alert adds that the USCIS will request that applicants filing the Form N-600, Application for Certificate of Citizenship, also begin following the same procedure in early 2019.

At this time, Form N-565 applicants will not be required to pay a biometrics fee.

The news alert adds that these changes are part of the USCIS's process to transition its operations to a fully electronic environment.
