Instructions for Request for Certificate of Non-Existence  
Department of Homeland Security  
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services  
Form G-1566  
OMB No. 1615-0156  
Expires 07/31/2024  
What Is the Purpose of Form G-1566?  
The information provided in Form G-1566 is used to determine if the immigration records specified by the requestor exist  
for the subject of record listed on the form. A Certificate of Non-Existence certifies that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration  
Services (USCIS) did not find the type of records identified by the requestor in Part 1. Certificate Request, of the form.  
If USCIS finds the type of records specified by the requestor, a Certificate will not be issued, but the requestor will be  
provided a response.  
NOTE: USCIS searches records in its custody and control when determining whether to issue a Certificate of Non-  
Existence. Certain records may have been transferred, including:  
1. Records of naturalization prior to September 27, 1906. Consult Federal records stored at the National Archives and  
Records Administration (NARA) Record Group 21, at www.archives.gov/research/guide-fed-records/groups/021.  
html or contact the clerk of the court where the naturalization occurred; or  
2. Sea, land, or air passenger manifest lists recording arrivals prior to December 1982. For these documents, contact  
National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) at www.archives.gov/research/immigration.
