USCIS Policy Update: Consular Certificate No Longer Proof Of Cuban Citizenship

Individuals born outside of Cuba applying for lawful permanent resident status in the United States under the Cuban Adjustment Act (CAA) must take note that USCIS is no longer considering a consular certificate documenting an individual’s birth outside of Cuba to a Cuban parent as sufficient evidence of Cuban citizenship. USCIS will not consider a consular certificate as sufficient proof of Cuban citizenship, even if the consular certificate contains a statement of citizenship.

USCIS will continue to accept valid Cuban passports and Cuban Civil Registry documents issued in Havana as proof of Cuban citizenship.
