Where to get apostatized copies in Peru(split)

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am/was in a similar situation. All I submitted was color copies of my wife and step-children's (they are from Peru) passport (the copies were legalized, apostilzed, and her signature notarized...We did all of this because we wanted to make sure there was no excuse for them to deny a number, etc...for a lack of information, etc...) along with the W7 application when filing my 2010 tax return, etc...I did this on 4/1 and received the ITIN number for my wife last week (on 4/23, my accountant told me I was very lucky because it didn't take a long time at all and that he has other cases currently that are taking 2 months+ to receive the number, etc...). BUT for my step-children they are requesting a date of entry into the US and I have to have this submitted within the next 45 days, which won't/shouldn't be a problem, etc...BUT in general this process went very smoothly without any issues, etc...The most important ITIN I needed was my wife's (again which I received) so I could file married/joint, etc...

Hope this helps...

Just out of curiosity, where in Peru did you get the apostilzed copies. The Peruvian 'official document'/notary system is really confusing to me. Any chance you could break it down step by step how I would get the ID card and birth certificate apostilzed? For example, the brith certificate needs to come from the city of birth (a small one in this case) do you then bring it to an office in lima for apostille it? Also when you say you got her signature notarized, do you mean the signature on the w-7 form was notarized?

Thanks so much in advance!

You can get documents apostille in Lima, Peru at the "Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores" located at Jiron Lampa 545, Lima. There are also other offices located in Arequipa, Cusco, Iquitos, Piura, Puno, Tacna, and Tumbes. See this link for the Peruvian site (in Spanish) with information about prices and documents that can be apostille : http://www.rree.gob.pe/servicioalciudadano/Paginas/Apostilla_y_Legalizaciones.aspx

I am sorry, but I am not familiar at getting IDs or birth certificates apostiled or notarized in Lima. When I submitted my wife's and daughter's birth certificate to USCIS here in the States, I submitted a copy of the birth certificate that had a "Peruvian seal and signature" on the back of the certificate and along with that I submitted a full translation in English of both sides. The certificate was not apostile, but had a seal by RENIEC (Peruvian public entity that issues documents). I think if you are trying to submit this to the IRS, it can be the same and probably no need to get it apostile. Hope someone else with more knowledge can reply here or better yet, just create a new thread/question on the Peruvian portal and wait for a response.

Good luck to you! :-)
