We got my nadra's birth certificate and marriage certificate . My dad is going to foreign ministery located in Lahore to get police certificate signed and attested . Do we need to get nadra related documents to be attested by foreign ministery ? I'm asking this question because we don't have foreign ministry office where we live and Lahore is like 10 hour by road drive . Your comment will be highly appreciated .

Hi, I got original birth certificate from KPC in English. Do I have to obtain one from NADRA office or can I send my original and would it be acceptable or do I have to get it notorised or attested by some one in UK? Please advice!! Are you also aware of the time it takes to get a birth certificate in Pakistan and cost etc?

As per my experience I dont think you need to attest your marriage certificate and police report from foreign minstery.

What you need is to get (Nikah Nama) Marriage Certificate Urdu+English both Notarize & certified copies, Birth certificate orginal+Notarized copy. Police report is already attested and signed by CCPO ( Chief Captical Police Officer) and doesnt require any other attestation.

Regards

We actually did have all our orignals made into copies and had the copies attested at the foreign ministry so we would have certified copies if anything happened to our originals.... (we heard too many scary stories about the originals being lost at NVC or embassy)

You can take anything i think to any foreign ministry office as long as you are the person on the certification (or your parents) take your NIC or send it with your parents....take your originals and get your originals attested/copies made attested....

Your're going anyway....so why not? Maybe an extra step but certainly worth it in case anything is lost. We had 3 copies of each original made and attested. So...while the post was moving originals we always had a certified/attested copy at one of our homes safe.

We sent them in and actually had no RFE nothing...everything went smoothly.

But...that was just us taking extra precaution...

Do you have to do it? no...should you? i guess its up to you... but you have to have your birth cert and nikah nama attested along with the translation attested

You should also get one from NADRA...be safe about it. Not sure about the time it took or cost. We sent my husbands KMC english birth certificate but also the one from NADRA....my understanding is that NADRA is a data base having all the marriage and birth records easily found. Ive seen some ppl get RFE for not having NADRA stuff (and some ppl moved thru easily without it)...but we didnt want to take any chances.

asalamu Alaikum,

The new Nadra Computerized Marriage and birth certificates are in English, can we use those marriage certificate when we do I 130 or we have to just make a word for word Nikkah Nama translation into English? Has anyone sent in the Nadra certificates to USCIS and got approved?

Yeah, you can use the nadra birth certificate. nothing has to be attested by the foreign ministry. you can get a true english translation of your nikkah nama with agold seal for 1,000 rupees. ill scan and attach mine uf you want too see what it looks like.

Well the Nikkah Nama I have is one page with top portion in Urdu and English portion on bottom and both just talk about, husband and wife's name and who read the nikkah and address it is also has stamp from high court. It is not the same certificate they used to have in the past so I guess I'll send this in and see if they accept this.

Another question i need help with is when petitioning for parents to immigrate to USA do you file one I 130 for both parents or separate I 130 for each parents? Also when you have siblings in Pakistan should the sibling in USA do parents I 130 and do siblings at same time? Because they have one child at this time he is about 13 years old so parents will file him I guess when they become us citizen and the 13 year old will immigrate as immediate relative where as if the parents petition for their children it will take I guess same time for other siblings as a sibling doing it in USA. I'm confused over this right now, thank you.
