Birth certificate translations to english

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

For the K1 interview at the Us Embassy in Belgium, my fiance's birth certificate does not need to be translated since it's in Dutch. However, since the birth certificate will need to be translate to English when filing for AOS - does the translation need to occur at a US embassy approved location in Belgium, or can it be done at an approved location here in the states. If the latter, where can we find locations that offer certified translations of birth certificates in NYC?

I think it applies for Dutch people as well for Belgian people that you can go to your 'Gemeente' or some institution in Brussels where you can ask for a international birth certificate.

BC must be translated to English from any other language. That applies for interview and for AOS. Some do it themselves other have someone else do it. I translated with https://rushtranslate.com/ (certified and notarized in 24± hrs)

Thanks for the link - seems very helpful.

 

After reviewing my fiance's birth certificate it appears that it is also in English - in addition to Dutch, French, and German on the main page. And on the second page there is a translation for what appears to be every single EU language(!) My fiance confirmed with the embassy that this birth certificate can be used when applying for AOS.

 

Given how convoluted the document is though (just like everything else in Belgium), I feel like it would help the immigration employee if we highlighted the english portions, since they can be easy to miss. Is that advised or not?
