Update regarding RFE for BC

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: AOS (pnd) Country: Argentina


We received an RFE because my husband's certified copy of BC (which his mom was given a few weeks after his birth and has never had any other type of document nor the ORIGINAL because in Argentina the government keeps the original--stores it away in ancient books which they then hide away...)

I called and talked to 4 different NVC operators, was given similar info by each person but each time the info varied a bit. One person told me "just write a note explaining why this is actually an original", another told me "we have BCs from all over the world, from every country and this just didn't meet our standards." Another person, who I assume was new never really gave me a 100% answer, I could here someone prompting her with info in the background.

After talking to 3 different officials here in Argentina, found someone competent.

They explained to me that this certified BC was rejected because BCs from Argentina, when used in transactions or official matters outside of Argentina, expire every 6 months. And an updated version needs to be sent out. (In Argentina this does not apply.) Of course none of this is listed anywhere on BC or on websites thus the mistake. The BC was also LAMINATED and when it is laminated it is no longer official.

SO...there you have it.

Eight different people to get things straight. :)

Time to tackle my RFE (not putting a zero in the correct spot) and my co-sponsor's RFE (they claim to have not received his 1040 or W2 which is totally not true since we sent them!!)

Good luck all.


Visa so close I can taste it.
