USCIS has published a notice, informing applicants that it is expanding its Direct Mail Program. All filings of Form N-565, the Application for Replacement Naturalization/Citizenship Document, should now be filed at a designated Service Center for processing. Applicants, prior to this notice, were required to file this form at the USCIS field office with jurisdiction over the location of current residence. This new Direct Mail Program will, according to USCIS, provide for a more efficient processing of these applications. This new process will be implemented on February 26, 2007 and will affect all N-565 applications.
