  • News: USCIS Announces Form Improvements Initiative

    USCIS Form Improvements Initiative

    Easy-to-Use Formats: We are publishing many of our forms in a 2-column, Adobe fillable format. When completed electronically, this format restricts incorrect entries and provides informational pop-up boxes to assist customers.

    User-Friendly Look and Feel: We have improved several of our naturalization forms to include clear and comprehensive instructions in plain language.

    Centralized Processing: We will continue to centralize filing locations at the USCIS Lockbox facilities.  Our Lockbox facilities provide fast, secure and standard intake services for over 5 million forms filed annually.  Beginning in February 2013, customers filing Form N-470, Application to Preserve Residence for Naturalization Purposes, will mail them to the Dallas Lockbox facility.

    New Data Collection Technologies: Beginning with Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card, we will publish our high-volume forms with 2D barcode technology.  When you complete these forms using a computer, the barcode at the bottom of the page will store the data entered on the form.  We will be able to scan the information from the barcode and upload it directly to USCIS systems, allowing us to improve data quality and operational efficiency. 

    Please do not attach anything to or damage the barcode.

    Enhanced Web Content: We are posting filing addresses and detailed fee information on our form landing pages.  Check the “Where to File” section for the form you are filing for the most current filing addresses. 

    We published an improved and detailed Form G-1055, Fee Schedule.  You can also find fee information in the form instructions and in detailed fee charts on many form landing pages.
