Some people have gotten an RFE for the foreign fiance(e)'s birth certificate. It is not mentioned in the filing instructions but you can send a copy just to be on the safe side.

Does the I-129F part of the process require a birth certificate or family registration for the alien fiance? I don't see anything in the FAQ, but a Japanese language website seems to indicate that that is the case.

I did not send any birth certificates with my K-1 package but still Its better to attach a photocopy of the birth certificate..

Proof of US citizenship is required by I-129F, that can be (US Birth Cert, US naturalization Cert, or Full copy of US Passport (All pages including cover))

Directions with form I-129F do not request foreign Birth Cert. It will be needed for visa interview.

I've also read of people getting RFE's for not including the beneficiaries birth certificate.

We put mine in our petition just to be safe :)

I would include it too but the reason for the RFE's tend to be related to tracking a woman's name changes, particularly relative to listed children with different surnames, etc. In our case, we included copies of birth certificates for my wife and her daughter, who had different surnames.

True, or another one I could think of may be if fiancee is from one country, but is resident and interviewing in another country. Edited by YuAndDan

Okay, thanks for the information. Of course, it's easy enough to get the certificates, though getting them translated might be troublesome. Do you think a photocopy of all pages of her passport would serve a similar function?
Yes, that should do, I seem to remember including my wife's Passport BIO page, and photo of birth cert with the I-129F petition.

Okay, because we'll already including the full passport in the section for evidence that we've met.

No. The passport is for USC to prove citizenship. That's not an issue for the foreigner. They'll hand over their passport at the interview so the visa can go inside. At interview the translated birth certificate is required. Check the specific expectations of the Consulate for translation. I wouldn't hold up filing if you don't have the foreigner's birth certificate now but would include a photocopy if you do.

My attorney told me to include the foreign birth certificate WITH translation. Maybe unnecessary, But since it will be needed for the interview, why not get it out of the way now?

Does the I-129F part of the process require a birth certificate or family registration for the alien fiance? I don't see anything in the FAQ, but a Japanese language website seems to indicate that that is the case.

Since my fiance just went through this in Japan, here's the deal:

They need a copy of the USC's birth certificate included in the I-129f packet.

They need a copy of the fiance's birth certificate with traslation for the interview. The translation must be done by a professional translator. You're not allowed to do it yourself or have friends do it for you. You should take originals of both with you for the interview in case the interview wants to see it. They will not keep it, but may want to review it. They didn't ask to see originals at my finace's interview earlier this week, but while he was waiting, he did see that another person was asked for originals.

Hope this helps :)
