is it necessary to have the beneficiary's birth certificate translated into english for the interview? :wacko:

It depends on the embassy.... Check the specifics in the embassy information section. If the embassy is Bogota it says that the birth certificate is acceptable in spanish. It is required to have it translated to english when applying for AOS in USA.

If you had indicated which country the beneficiary is from it would make this answer easier.

Normally, the Embassy/Consulate will accept a document in English or in the language native to the country in which the Alien Beneficiary will interview in. If the Alien Beneficiary has a Birth Certificate from Japan in Japanese, then if they are interviewing at Tokyo Embassy, they can leave it in Japanese. But if they are living and will interview in New Zealand, then that would require translating the Birth Certificate to English.

If there are other documents that apply such as a Divorce Decree for the Alien Beneficiary, the same will apply. There should be instructions in Packet 3 from your Consulate/Embassy or on the Embassy/Consulate web site if you do not receive a Packet 3.
