This format will provide step by step instructions and pop-up boxes with information. It will provide instructions in plain language and people who are not good in English will also be able to understand these instructions and complete the USCIS forms easily. USCIS has improved several naturalization forms and all these forms now come with instructions in plain-language. Customers will no more find it difficult to fill out these improved forms.

USCIS recently published Form I-90, with 2D barcode technology and people who seek to apply for Green Card renewal or for replacement, can file Form I-90 online. When the applicants complete the online forms with 2D barcode technology, the barcode on each page will store information that the applicants enter. USCIS will scan the information that the barcode stores and upload it to the USCIS systems. This process will help the USCIS to serve its customers efficiently. At the same time, USCIS will also centralize filing locations at the Lockbox facilities.
