Hi All

Well I am from India. In India, most of us need to submit our Original Birth Certificate while getting an Admission into a School. On passing School, i.e passing Std X / Xth Grade, the Mark Sheet given by the School, clearly mentions the Birth Date. In India, this Passing Certificate is considered valid enough for Birth Date Proof.

However, for the NVC Process, we need to submit the Birth certificate. Since I dont have one, is it ok if i get an Affidavit for the same? Does anybody ahve a format of Affidavit for Birth Certificate? Should i also send a copy of my X Grade Passing Certificate?

Please Help.....

Yes NVC will accept your Xth pass certificate. Also you may want to make an affidavit from your parents stating your birth certificate.

You can follow this link to find more about Affidavit of Birth Certificate.

You should attempt to get a certified copy of your birth certificate in India, it usually takes 1-2 weeks. In the meantime prepare the affadavit of birth certificate as mentioned above. In the event you get an RFE asking for your birth certificate you would have already started the process.

Good Luck!!

NVC need Birth certificate from municipality or u need to give a no record certificate if they don't have your records (only for indians).

do some research before ask a question. http://www.visajourn...h...=173187&hl=

A thread from NVC website for India http://travel.state....ocity_3582.html

Birth Certificates

Available. Prior to l970, the reporting of births was voluntary. Birth certificates of Europeans, Anglo-Indians, Armenian Christians, Jews and Parsis born prior to l970 may be obtained from the State Registrar General of Births, Deaths, and Marriages. No standard or uniform certificate is issued by the authorities. In addition, acceptable certificates may often be obtained from the municipal and rural registration records, which are maintained under the state laws. Europeans, Anglo-Indians, and Indian Christians are usually able to obtain church baptismal certificates.

Under the Registration of Births and Deaths Act of l969, births are required to be registered in almost all of the States and Union Territories of India. Birth certificates are available to any applicant born on or after April l, l970, upon payment of a nominal fee to the appropriate authority.

In cases where birth certificates from the authorities are unavailable or contain insufficient information regarding the birth or the parents, a sworn affidavit executed by either the parents, if living, or other close relatives older than the applicant, may be submitted. It should set forth the relationship between the deponent and the applicant, how well the deponent knows the applicant, date and place of the applicant's birth, the names of both parents, and any other related facts. Such an affidavit, when a birth certificate is unavailable, should be accompanied by a document from a competent governmental authority confirming that the certificate does not exist, or no longer exists.
