    N-600 is for people who are already US citizens. So how did you become a citizen? Were you a permanent resident living in the US with a US citizen parent while you were under 18? Did you turn in your GC when you applied for your US passport and they didn't give it back?

    If you are claiming to be a citizen from birth, then how you entered the US is not really relevant. That is only relevant for people who derived citizenship from a parent after birth. (Also in that case I'm wondering why you didn't just apply for a US passport directly rather than fork out so much money for a Certificate of Citizenship.)

    p.s. You were born in wedlock, right?

    In order for you to be a citizen right now, either you were a citizen from birth, or you acquired citizenship as a minor.

    You would be a citizen from birth if you were born abroad in wedlock to one US citizen parent and one alien parent, and your US citizen parent was physically present in the US for a cumulative total of 5 years, including 2 after he turned 14 (if you were born after 1986), or physically present in the US for a cumulative total of 10 years, including 5 after he turned 14 (if you were born before 1986).

    In order for you to have acquired citizenship as a minor without knowing about it, the only way is if you were a permanent resident under 18 living in the US with a US citizen parent. Since you never got permanent residency, this is not possible. So if you are claiming to be a US citizen, you must be claiming to be a US citizen from birth (as explained above).

    Also, no matter how you became a US citizen, as a citizen, you can apply for a US passport at any time. That is why I am wondering why you don't just apply for a passport, which is cheap and fast, rather than paying more than a thousand dollars to file N-600 for the Certificate of Citizenship.
